PRAYER FOR GUIDANCE
Lord, what we have not, give us.
Lord, what we know not, teach us.
Lord, what we are not, make us.
Forgive what we have been.
Sanctify what we are and order what we shall be,
For your mercy’s sake. Amen
A PRAYER FOR HEALING
Lord, You invite all who are burdened to come to You.
Allow Your healing hand to heal me.
Touch my soul with your compassion for others.
Touch my heart with Your courage and infinite love for all.
Touch my mind with Your wisdom that my mouth may always proclaim Your praise.
Teach me to reach out to You in my need and help me to lead others to You by my example.
Most loving Heart of Jesus, bring me health in body and spirit that I may serve You with all my strength.
Touch gently this life which You have created now and forever. Amen
A PRAYER TO THE HOLY SPIRIT
Come, Spirit of God, and grant us the power to be gentle, the strength to be forgiving, the patience to be understanding, the endurance to accept the consequences of holding on to what is right.
Come, Spirit of God, help us to put out trust in the power of good to overcome evil, the power of love to overcome hatred.
Come, Spirit of God, enlighten us with the vision to see, and the faith to believe in a world free from violence, a new world where fear will no longer lead us to commit in justices, nor selfishness cause us to bring suffering to others.
Come, Spirit of Wisdom and Love, source of all good, teach us Your truth and guide our actions in Your way of peace. Amen.
