Pope’s Intention (universal): We pray for women who are victims of violence, that they may
be protected by society and have their sufferings considered and heeded.
A Daily Offering Prayer
Dear God, thank you for this brand new day.
Let us be rays of light and peace to all we meet.
Allow us to be filled with light also.
Help us to truly experience your company along the paths that we walk today.
Bring the light of healing, consolation and forgiveness to all of us who
need these things.
With Jesus in the Night
Lord, it’s time for me to rest now.
Sometimes my rest is troubled.
Sometimes I have good reason to feel restless.
Sometimes I simply invent reasons in my restless mind.
I implore you to give me rest.
I place all my cares and worries in your hands.
I want to trust you.
I want to have faith in you.
Help my lack of trust.
Help my lack of faith.
Love me in my imperfections and in my desire to be who you made me to be.
Thank you, God for this day.
