Daily Prayer for Sunday, July 2, 2017

O gracious Lord Jesus Christ, though I, who am a sinner, in no ways presume on any merits of my own, and put all my trust in your goodness and mercy, yet do I fear and tremble in drawing near to the Table on which is spread your banquet of all delights.

Many a sin has sullied me in body and in soul because I did not restrain my thoughts nor guard my lips: nevertheless it is to you, O God of majesty and love, that I turn in my extremity, for you are the fount of mercy; to you, as quickly as I may, I speed: for you alone can heal me; I take refuge under your protection. I dare not face you as my judge, but I cleave to Thee as my saviour. Thy mercy is above all Thy works. Though I fear, because of my sins, yet I trust in you on account of your mercy. Turn, then, those pitiful eyes of yours upon me, O Jesus Christ, our everlasting king and Lord, who are God and man, and who for man was crucified. Have mercy upon me, full of misery and of sin though I be, upon me, whose only hope is in you, because of your loving-kindness. Hail! you, saving victim, offered up for me and for all mankind upon the gibbet of the cross! Hail! you, glorious and most Precious Blood, that

Hail! you, saving victim, offered up for me and for all mankind upon the gibbet of the cross! Hail! you, glorious and most Precious Blood, that flows from the wounds of Jesus Christ, my crucified Lord; to wash away the sins of all the world! Forget not, O Lord, that I am one of those whom you have created, and with your own blood have redeemed. I repent me of my sins: I will strive to amend my ways. O most merciful Father, put far from me all my iniquities and all my offences; so that, by you made whole in body and in soul, I may be accounted worthy to approach the Holy of holies. Grant, in fine, that the holy foretaste of your body and blood, which thou vgives to me, a poor sinner, may be a pledge of the full remission of my sins and of the washing away for evermore of all my guilt. From my mind may it chase away every sinful thought: in my will may it foster all holy desires: may it spur me on to the doing of works well-pleasing to you; and may it be to me, of body and of soul, a very sure protection and defence against the craft of all my enemies.

Amen.

Daily prayer for Saturday, July 1, 2017

Father, I dedicate this new day to you;
as I go about my work.
I ask you to bless those with whom I come in contact.

Lord, I pray for all men and women
who work to earn their living;
give them satisfaction in what they do.

Spirit of God,
comfort the unemployed and their families;
they are your children and my brothers and sisters.
I ask you to help them find work soon.

Daily Prayer

O My God,
I place my trust and confidence in You,
who will reward the good and punish the wicked.
I believe in You and accept everything
You have taught and revealed.

I believe that in one God
there are three Divine Persons –
God the Father,
God the Son
and God the Holy Spirit.

I believe that God the Son became Man
without ceasing to be God.
He is Jesus Christ, my lord and my Savior,
the Redeemer of the human race.
He died on the Cross for my salvation
and eternal happiness.

O my God, give me a strong faith.
Help me to believe with lively faith.

O my God, all-good and all-merciful,
I sincerely hope to be saved.
Help me to do all that is necessary
to gain eternal salvation.

I have committed many sins in my life,
but now I turn away from them.
I am sorry, truly sorry for all of them,
because I have offended You, my God,
Who are all-good, all-perfect,
all-holy and all-merciful.

I love you, God, with all my heart.
Please forgive me for having offended You.

I promise that, with Your help,
I will never offend You again.

My God, have mercy on me.

Act of Faith

O my God, I firmly believe that you are on God in three divine Persons, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.  I believe that your divine Son became man and died for our sins, and that he shall come to judge the living and the dead.  I believe these and all the truths the holy Catholic Church teaches, because you have revealed them, who can neither deceive nor be deceived.
