- O Lord God, Our Father, we worship and glorify you for your greatness and your goodness.
You are the Infinite Being who is responsible for the whole of creation. We bow
before you in adoration and reverence. We thank you for creating us, for loving
us, cherishing us and for living in us and constantly being with us. Since you have
given us all we have and are, we have nothing to offer you except our love. Father,
we love you.
- Almighty God, my loving Father I love You with my whole heart. I offer You all my
thoughts, words and actions, and ask you to bless me during this day. Help me so
that I may always know, love and serve You, and be eternally happy with You after
- My Lord and God
Make me an instrument of your peace
Where there is hatred, let me bring your love;
Where there is guilt, pardon;
Where there is dissension, union
Where there is darkness, faith;
Where there is despair, hope
Where there is error, truth;
Where there is sadness, joy and comfort
My Lord and my God
Grant that I may not so much seek
To be understood, as to understand;
To be loved, as to love;
To be consoled as to console;
Make me experience that in giving, I receive
That in pardoning, I am Pardoned;
That in dying, I have life.
- Lord, teach me to be generous,
To serve You as You deserve,
To give and not to count the cost,
To fight and not to heed the wounds,
To toil and not to seek for rest,
To labour and not to ask for no reward
save that of knowing that I do your will, O Lord.
- Today, O God, make me
Courageous enough to face things of which I am afraid;
Strong enough to overcome temptations and do the right thing;
Persevering enough to finish every task that is given to me to do;
Kind enough always to be ready to help others.
Help me to live in purity, to speak in truth,
To act in love, all through today.
- O God, thank you for all the people and the things which make such a difference
to my life. Thank you for my parents and for all that they do for me; my home and
for all the happiness and the comfort which are always waiting there for me; my
friends in whose company I am happy; my school and for everything I learn here;
my teachers and domestic staff who help me in every way. Thank you God, for these
and all that You have given me. Above all, thank you, Lord, for giving me Yourself.
