+ + + Pray + + +

I would like to first say Happy Birthday to my Lexicon who is 9 today! May God Bless him always.

Let us pray…

Intercessions from the Liturgy of the Hours Morning Prayer:

The Lord Jesus Christ has given us the light of another day. In return we thank him as we cry out:
Lord, bless us and bring us close to you. 

You offered yourself in sacrifice for our sins,
– accept our intentions and our work today.
Lord, bless us and bring us close to you.

You bring us joy by the light of another day,
– let the morning star rise in our hearts.
Lord, bless us and bring us close to you. 

Give us strength to be patient with those we meet today,
– and so imitate you.
Lord, bless us and bring us close to you. 

Make us aware of your mercy this morning, Lord,
– and let your strength be our delight.
Lord, bless us and bring us close to you.

Pray

I love to pray.
I look forward to praying while I pray.
I have a journal on my nightstand where I keep a list of your requests.
It’s something I can always do for you – even when you think no one can possibly help.
I can offer prayers, small sacrifices, happiness and sadness I experience for anyone and everyone at anytime.
I read somewhere that whenever someone has a great day, they should know there are unknown prayers being prayed for them to make it so.
It’s those prayers that are lifting you up.
Your great day is God being presented with prayer bouquets on your behalf.
I really like that imagery.
And you thought no one prayed for you?
Pshhht!

We would just like to ask, in return for our prayers, that you, dear friends, find someone to pray for. Whether the intention is for someone here in the comment box, a person walking past you on the street, your spouse, your boss, souls in purgatory, a priest, the unborn, a friend or an enemy – pray for them. I find this this the best way to stay grounded and compassionate; to know that we could all use an extra prayer in the spiritual bouquet to our Lord.

My friend S, also said that the prayers of children are especially strong. I believe it’s because of their purity, sincerity and trust in God. So, Monk and Lexicon will be praying for you too. At Mary’s grotto of course!

Won’t you let us pray for you?

Please leave your prayer request below.
