Daily Prayer 2017
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 situations that we find ourselves living in at this time.

The Word of God became a man and lived among us.
He enabled those who accepted him to become the children of God.
(Jn 1)

Father, your Son was born like us but without sin. As we journey in our faith,
may we be reborn in him and help us to be free from sin,
so that we may follow you with a pure heart and soul.

Prayer for Doctors and Nurses

Sanctify, O Lord, those whom you have called to the study and practice of the arts of healing,
and to the prevention of disease and pain.
Strengthen them by your life-giving Spirit,
that by their ministries the health of the community may be promoted and your creation glorified;
through Jesus Christ our Lord.

“For this is the message you have heard from the beginning: we should love one another.”

Lord, Your message is so simple: that we love one another.
Remind me to see You in my brothers and sisters so that my love may be real and sincere.

Jesus preached the Good News of the Kingdom and healed all who were sick. (Mt 4)

Lord, there are times in our lives where we are in need of your healing presence.
During these times, often our pride prohibits us from asking for your help and we move further away from you.
Help us this day to put away our pride and reach out to you to become aware of the reality that you are always with us,
no matter in what situation we may find ourselves.
Help us to know thay you are there to forgive us, to heal us and to strengthen us.

“On entering the house they saw the child with Mary his mother. They prostrated themselves and did him homage.
Then they opened their treasures and offered him gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh.” (Mt2:11-12)

The magi travelled far from their homes to seek you out.
They took risks to find you.
When they did, they offered you homage and generously offered their gifts to You.
Give me the grace to seek You out, to not hesitate in honoring You, and to generously offer You my own gifts.

“All you who are thirsty, come to the water!
You who have no money, come, receive grain and ear;
come, without paying and without cost, drink wine and milk!”
(Isaias 55:1)

Lord, you are generous and compassionate.
You bless us with so many things.
Help me to imitate your compassion and generosity today.

"I have come that you may have life,
and have it more abundantly,
says the Lord."

Lord, you blessed our family incredibly with children and they have given life to their parents.
Now we realize that there is an even more blessed gift from you as we see our children discover your goodness.

Prayer for Those Abused by Drugs

Most loving God,
we ask your blessing upon all
who suffer from addiction.
Strengthen them to reach out for help.
Enable them to take the first step to recovery.
Bless them with the persistence to persevere
in the fight to be free.
Give courage and hope to their families,
drawing them close together
in the power of your love,
which alone can transform our living.

Here I am Lord, I come to do your will.
(Ps 19)

Lord, here I am, I have come to do your will.
I desire so much to remain faithful to your plans in my life.
At times, I feel a pull in the opposite direction.
In these times, I am more in need of your strength and courage.
May you bless me with the grace of strength and courage to remain faithful to all that you ask me to live.

"The Lord sent me to being glad tidings to the poor and to proclaim liberty to captives."

Fear and fatigue often remove joy and wonder from my life.
Even loved ones feel distant and hurt by my apathy.
Lord, renew the joy and wonder of my youth, so I can bless others with your Good News.

Prayer for Renewal

Hide Your face from my sins, and blot out all my iniquities.
Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me.
Do not cast me away from Your presence, and do not take Your Holy Spirit from me.
Restore to me the joy of Your salvation, and uphold me by Your generous Spirit.

Psalms 51: 9-12

"The word of God is living and effective, able to discern reflections and thoughts of the heart."

Lord, you are the Rock in our family.
Even when far away we do not forget you.
Help us always to find the way back to you and your grace.
No one and nothing can take your place in our hearts.*

"Then Samuel, with the horn of oil in his hand, anointed him in the midst of his brothers; and from that day on, the spirit of the Lord rushed upon David." I Samuel 16: 13

Lord God, after King Saul, your chosen one, disobeyed you, you chose the shepherd boy, David, to be King over your people in his place.
David found favor with you and was anointed.
I know that you never give a task without also supplying the grace to accomplish it.
Like David, I am often weak and feel less than capable of accomplishing all that you have called me to do.
With your grace help me to be your good and joyful disciple in all things.
I pray through Christ our Lord.

“Grieved at their hardness of heart, Jesus said to the man, ‘Stretch out your hand.’”

Dear God, help us to stretch out our hands in prayer to you.*
Sometimes we seem to create a collective hardness of heart resisting our family needs.
Teach us to grieve over our resentments and overcome them.

“He had cured many and, as a result, those who had diseases were pressing upon him to touch him.”

Dear God, do we press upon you too often with our family petitions?
It is only because there is no other place for us to turn.
You are ever faithful through your compassionate mercy.
Please continue to help us.

Here am I, Lord; I come to do your will.
(Ps. 40)

Lord Jesus, we come before you in prayer to ask for your guidance.
We desire so much to do your will but there are times when we fail to follow your words and commandments.
In these times of darkness, may we always believe we can turn to you for forgiveness.

ajusmc 01-21-2017 07:10 AM

To the upright I will show the saving power of God.
(Ps. 50)

God our Father, we give you thanks for the gift of your Son.
He turned darkness into light and showed us the way to you.
May we always remain faithful in giving thanks to you for the graces given to us.
