Daily Prayer

It is necessary for the Christian to truly follow God's will to begin by spending at least 10 minutes of silent prayer each day to converse with God.

Before Silent Prayer

My Lord and my God, I firmly believe that you are here, that you see me, that you hear me. I adore you with profound reverence; I ask your pardon for my sins and the grace to make this time of prayer fruitful. My immaculate mother, Saint Joseph, my patron saints, and my guardian angel, intercede for me as I pray.

Prayer After Silent Prayer

I think you, my God, for the good resolutions affections, and inspirations do you have communicated to me in this meditation. Ask your help to put them into effect. My immaculate mother, Saint Joseph, my patron saints, and my guardian angel, intercede for me as I go forth to glorify God by my actions, words, and thoughts.

Prayer before Work

St. Joesph


Serenity Prayer

God, give us grace to accept with serenity

the things that cannot be changed,

Courage to change the things

which should be changed,

and the Wisdom to distinguish

the one from the other.

Living one day at a time,

Enjoying one moment at a time,

Accepting hardship as a pathway to peace,

Taking, as Jesus did,

This sinful world as it is,

Not as I would have it,

Trusting that You will make all things right,

If I surrender to Your will,

So that I may be reasonably happy in this life,

And supremely happy with You forever in the next. Amen.       

Also prayed in the Evenings

The Examen by St. Ignatius

Our Father. (Common Prayers)

The Prayer of Daily Repentance

Eternal Father, I offer Thee the Sacred Heart of Jesus, with all its love, all its sufferings, and all its merits.

To expiate all the sins I have committed this day and during all my life. Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit. As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.

L: Pray for us O Holy Mother of God

R: That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ

Let us pray: Mary, guide me a sinner in the little way of love. Help me to know God's will in every moment. Pray that I may have boldness and courage at even the most difficult of circumstances to do God's ordaining will and only God's ordaining will. Help me to reveal Him as You did/do. Teach me the path of virtue, receptivity, vulnerability, and authenticity which You so hastily followed. Pray that the effects of sin I retain, those I have inflicted, and those inflicted on others by others be healed. I entrust my salvation, the salvation of those I love, and those I struggle to love to Your care, love, and mercy. In such trust, I hope for a better tomorrow for the world, at least through those I am entrusted with and myself. Through your intercession, I ask my love for Him whom You bore and those He loves be my strength and glory as I walk this pilgrimage here below as it was and is for You and all saints. Beneath your protection and intercession may I be purged of my sin, given the mind and heart of Christ, and united to Christ more than a spouse, first in His Passion, and thence in His resurrection that all those I encounter and myself may, with You, praise God the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit through all eternity.

Saint Joseph, pray for us. 

Saint…, pray for us.

Prayer of Saint Antiochus

Still the commotions of our flesh, and calm all earthly and worldly feelings within us. Grant us, O Lord, a watchful mind, innocent thoughts, a sober heart, a gentle sleep free from evil dreams. At the hour of prayer, rouse us, strong in the practice of Your commandments and ever-mindful of Your desires. Give us the grace to sing  Your glory throughout the night; to praise, bless and glorify your all honorable and magnificent Name, Father + Son and Holy Spirit, now and always and forever and ever. Amen. 

Prayer of Intercession

O Lord, lover of mankind, forgive those who hate us and do us wrong; do good to those who are good to us.

Travel with those who travel by land and air. Struggle alongside the Christians. To those who serve and are merciful to us, grant forgiveness of sins. Have mercy on those who have asked us, unworthy as we are, to pray for them. Remember, O Lord our parents and relatives who have fallen asleep, and grant them repose where the light of Your countenance shines. O Lord remember all those who are captive, and deliver them from every misfortune. Remember, O Lord those who bear offerings and do good works in Your holy Churches and grant them salvation and eternal life. Lastly, O Lord, remember us wretched servants and unworthy sinners: enlighten our minds with the knowledge of You, and lead us in the way of Your commandments, through the intercession of Your All-Immaculate Mother, our Lady, the Mother of God and Ever Virgin Mary, and of all the Saints, for You are blessed for ever and ever.

Glory be to the + Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit. 

Be my soul’s defender, O God, for I step over many snares. Deliver me from them and save me, O Good One, in Your love for man. 

Now and always, and forever and ever. 

Let us not silently hymn the most glorious Mother of God, holier than the holy Angels, but confess her with heart and mouth to be the Mother of God, for She truly bore God incarnate for us, and prays without ceasing for our souls. Amen.
