Our Father

Our Father, Who art in heaven,
Hallowed be Thy Name.
Thy Kingdom come.

As we forgive those who trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil. Amen

Prayer to Our Lady, Untier of Knots

Holy Mary, full of the presence of God during your life you accepted with great humility the Holy Will of the Father and the legacy of your Son Our Lord Jesus Christ.  Evil never dared to entangle you with its confusion.

Since then you have interceded for all of our difficulties.  With all simplicity and patience you have given us examples on how t untangle the knots in our complicated lives.  By being our Mother forever, you arrange and make clear the path that unites us to Our Lord.

Holy Mary, Mother of God and ours, with your maternal heart, untie the knots that upset our lives.  We ask you receive in your hands (mention who or prayer request) and deliver us from the chains and confusions that have us restrained.

Blessed Virgin Mary, through your grace, your intercession, and by your example, deliver us from evil and untie the knots that keep us from uniting with God, so that once free of every confusion and error, we may find Him in all things, have Him in our hearts and serve Him always in our brothers and sisters.  Amen.

Act of Love

Act of Hope

O my God, relying on your infinite mercy and promises, I hope to obtain pardon of my sins, the help of your grace, and life everlasting, through the merits of Jesus Christ, my Lord and Redeemer.  Amen.

Act of Faith

O my God, I firmly believe that you are one God in three divine Persons, Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.  I believe that your divine Son became man and died for our sins, and that he will come to judge the living and the dead.  I believe these and all the truths which the holy Catholic Church teaches, because you have revealed them, who can neither deceive nor be deceived.  Amen.

Saint Francis Prayer

Lord, make me an instrument of Your peace.  Where there is hatred, let me sow love; where there is injury, pardon; where there is doubt, faith; where there is despair, hope; where there is darkness, light; where there is sadness, joy.

O, Divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled as to console; to be understood as to understand; to be loved as to love.  For it is in giving that we receive; it is in pardoning that we pardoned; it is in dying that we are born again to eternal life.

Prayer written by Saint Therese of Lisieux

O Little Infant Jesus, my only treasure, I abandon myself to Your every wish, I seek no other joy than that of calling forth Your sweet smile.  Grant me the graces and the virtues of Your Holy Childhood, so that on the day of my birth into Heaven the angels and saints may recognize me as Your little spouse.

A prayer of Saints Michael, Gabriel & Raphael, Archangels

Heavenly King, You have given us archangels to assist us during our pilgrimage on earth.  Saint Michael is our protector; I ask him to come to my aid, fight for all my loved ones, and protect us from danger.

Saint Gabriel is a messenger of the Good News; I ask him to help me to clearly hear Your voice and to teach me the truth.

Saint Raphael is the healing angel; I ask him to take my need for healing and that of everyone I know, lift it up to Your throne of grace and deliver back to us the gift of recovery.

Help us, O Lord. to realize more fully the reality of the archangels and their desire to serve us.

Holy angels, prayer for us.  Amen.

Saint Francis Prayer – Respect Life

Gentle St. Francis
you were so devoted to the humanity of Christ.
Your heart burst with appreciation toward God
for taking on human life.
You saw beauty and goodness in all living things – 
in birds that sing,
the fish that fill our waters,
and all that lives in nature.

Help us to imitate your reverence for life
wherever it may be.
Especially, humble Francis of Assisi,
help us to help others
to see the worth of each living,
unborn baby sheltered in its mother’s womb.

May all mankind have the grace
to understand that these tiny,
budding lives have the right to live,
liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.
