Let us pray, and ask for the intercession of the following Saints who share the same feast day:
Saint Jerome Emiliani, watch over all children who are abandoned or unloved. Give us the courage to show them God’s love through our care. Help us to lose the chains that keep us from living the life God intended for us.
Loving God, rewarder of the humble, you blessed St. Josephine Bakhita with charity and patience. May her prayers help us, and her example inspire us to carry our cross and to love you always. Pour upon us the spirit of wisdom and love with which you filled St. Josephine Bakhita.
By serving you as she did, may we please you by our faith and our actions. Grant this through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever.
O God, You were pleased to institute by heavenly direction, through St. John of Matha, the order of the Holy Trinity, for redeeming captives from the power of the Saracens; grant, we implore You, that by the suffrage of his merits, we may be delivered by Your grace from captivity of soul and body. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, Your Son, who being God, lives and reigns with You in the unity of the same Holy Spirit, forever and ever. Amen.
I hope you enjoy the new day we set aside for prayers.
Please leave your prayer request below. If you do not leave your prayer request in time for my hour of Adoration, not to worry, I’m praying for you anyway.
A gentle reminder of this page as well, to pray for those who have had procedures which leave them unable to have children.
