Daily Prayer 2018
Prayer for the New Year

Grant me the strength from day to day
To bear what burdens come my way.
Grant me throughout this bright New Year
More to endure and less to fear.
Help me live that I may be
From spite and petty malice free.
Let me not bitterly complain
When cherished hopes of mine prove vain,
Or spoil with deeds of hate and rage
Some fair tomorrow's spotless page.
Lord, as the days shall come and go
In courage let me stronger grow.
Lord, as the New Year dawns today
Help me to put my faults away.
Let me be big in little things;
Grant me the joy which friendship brings.
Keep me from selfishness and spite;
Let me be wise in what is right.
A happy New Year! Grant that I
May bring no tear to any eye.
When this New Year in time shall end
Let it be said I've played the friend,
Have lived and loved and labored here,
And made of it a happy year.

In the past God spoke to our fathers through the prophets;
now He speaks to us through His Son.
(Heb 1)

Lord God, open our ears to hear the Words of your Son, touch our lips to proclaim your presence in our lives and in our world and heal our broken hearts so that we may love our neighbors.
As we begin this new year, may we be living examples of your Son's actions on earth and be peacemakers in situtations that we find ourselves living in at this time.

We have seen his star at its rising and have come to do him homage.
(Mt 2)

God our creator,
as the star revealed the way for the Wisemen to know where your Son was born,
may you illuminate our path so that we may follow your Son in our faith journey.

Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord;
the Lord God shines upon us.
(Ps. 117)

God our creator, your Son came to this earth to be like us in all things but sin.
He gave witness to your presence and spoke of your love for each one of us.
Help us to become more like Him as we grow closer to you.

The people who walked in darkness have seen a great light;
on those who lived in the shadow of death a light has shone.
(Is 9:2)

God, light of all nations,
we come before you asking for you to give us the light of life.
As we receive this gift from you,
may we be able to dispel the darkness that sometimes surrounds us
and shed the brightness of your presence in our world.

The Lord has sent me to bring glad tidings to the poor and to proclaim liberty to captives.
(Lk. 4)

Lord, giver of all that is good.
Help us to be ever mindful of those who are deprived of the simple necessities of life.

God's love for us was revealed when he sent his only Son into our world,
so that we could have life through him.
( 1Jn 4)

God our Father, we are thankful for the gift of life.
We are reminded of how precious this gift of life is in our world.
Your Son revealed for us the love you have for us.
May we grow in our love for you and for our brothers and sisters as we take this moment in prayer to be with you.

The heavens were opened and the voice of the Father thundered:
This is my beloved Son, listen to him.
(Mt. 3)

Almighty, eternal God, we celebrate the baptism of your Son.
We are reminded of our own baptism and how we became your followers.
However, there are times when we fail in our commitment to follow you.
During these dark moments of struggle help us to ask for your forgiveness.

The Kingdom of God is at hand; repent and believe in the Gospel.
(Mk. 1)

Father of love, we desire so much to live in your love.
Yet, there are times when we get caught up in the evil that surrounds us and leads us down a path that brings us further away from your love.
Help us to learn to rely on your love and to turn away from our sinful ways.

Lord, you are the source of life,
and in the light of your glory we find happiness.
(Ps. 35)

All-powerful God, we want so much to hear your words and to follow in your footsteps.
We believe that you are the source of life and love.
However, our own human nature gets in the way and we find ourselves living with jealousy and envy.
When these times come into our lives help us to live in humility and turn towards you for your grace of forgiveness.

Forever I will sing the goodness of the Lord (Ps. 89)

God our creator, in coming before you in prayer this day,
we stand in humility to sing of your goodness towards us.
In our journey we are ever mindful of your presence and how awesome is your love for us.
May we grow in humility to be able to sing for ever of your goodness in our lives.
Grant this through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever.

Give peace, Lord, to those who wait for you;
listen to the prayers of your servants,
and guide us in the way of justice.
(Sir. 36:18-19)

Lord Jesus, you have shown us the way to peace.
Help us to take time each day to come before you with our concerns, worries and fears.
Help us to never be afraid to voice what we carry deep within our hearts.
Guide us in the ways of peace and justice.

Blessed be the Lord, my Rock!
(Ps. 144)

All-powerful and gracious God,
we are in such need of your loving and gentle presence in our lives.

I will get up and go to my father and shall say to him, Father, I have sinned against heaven and against you. (Mt. 15)

God our Father, in the gospel your Son Jesus gave us this parable to learn about forgiveness and how it is never too late to ask for forgiveness.
We pray for all who this day are finding it very difficult to approach you for the forgiveness of their sins.
We ask for the grace to be able to bring people back to you who have been away from your loving kindness and forgiving presence.

Lord, you are truly the Savior of the world;
give me living water,
that I may never thirst again.
(Jn. 4)

God of all compassion, you call us to the well of the living water.
You tell us that anyone who drinks from this well will never thirst again.
We pray, this day, for the grace to recognize you when we are at the well and have the courage to drink from the life giving waters.

All you nations, praise the Lord, for steadfast is his kindly mercy to us.
(Ps. 116)

Lord Jesus, each day we come before you desiring only to know, love and serve you in all that we do.
Yet, there are many obstacles that are placed before us by family members,
friends and co-workers who sometimes are not even aware of what they have done to bring harm to our relationship with you.
When this happens, we ask for the grace to be able to distinguish good from evil and to have the courage and strength to gently point this out to those around us.

ajusmc 02-11-2018 08:39 AM

Give light to my eyes, Lord,
lest I sleep in death, and my enemy says:
I have overcome him.
(Ps 13

Lord, we ask that in your loving kindness grant us the gift of your unconditional love.
Our world is in such need of your love and to have others who will give witness to your presence in this world.
Help us to bear this witness to those whom we encounter in our journey in life and give us the strength to share our love of you with others.
