With Jesus in the morning
Father of Goodness, I know you’re with me.
Here I am on this new day.
Place my heart once more
next to the heart of your son Jesus,
who is giving himself for me and who comes to
me in the Eucharist.
May your Holy Spirit make me your friend and apostle,
available for your mission of compassion.
I put in your hands my joys and hopes,
my works and sufferings, everything that I am and have
in communion with my brothers and sisters of
this worldwide prayer network.
With Mary I offer you my journey for the mission
of the Church and for the intentions of the Pope’s Worldwide
Prayer Network for this month. Amen
With Jesus in the night
God, good night.
Thank you for the day.
The good bits were good.
The tough bits are over for another day.
Help me to sleep well tonight.
Help me to face into another day tomorrow.
Bless and protect all my loved ones this night.
Bless and protect all those, too, with whom I
disagree or with whom I don’t get on – they’re
your children too, I know.
May tomorrow bring about your will for the
world - peace, love, joy and mercy.
May I play my part.
For now, good night, God.
I love you and know you love me, warts and all.
