Prayer

Lord Jesus,
you sent your disciples
to preach the good news of salvation
by words and by deeds.
Grant us, we pray, a zeal for souls,
that we may never tire of proclaiming
the wonders of your mercy.  Amen.

—William Manaker, S.J.

 

 

 


Prayer

Holy Spirit,
Holy Breather,
moving this way and that,
invisible to our broken, adamic eyes.

Come Breathe on us.
Come breathe and lift and swirl and fill
Perforate our lives with your holy breathe and
enliven these cold forsaken bones
…winnow away death that life might spring up.
                         —–
Wind of God,
blow far from us
all dark despair, all deep distress, all groundless fears,
all sinful desires, all Satan’s snares, all false values,
all selfish wants, all wasteful worries.
                       —–
Breath of God,
blow into us your holy presence,
your new creation, your living love, your healing touch,
your unearthly courage, your mighty strength,
your perfect peace, your boundless concern
your divine grace, your never-ending joy.

Wind of God, blow strong, blow fresh, blow on us now.
In the name of the Father, Son, and Spirit. Amen.

—adapted from a prayer by Bruce Benedict, in Worship Sourcebook, LTP Publications, Chicago, IL.

 

 


Prayer

Soul of Christ, sanctify me.
Body of Christ, save me.
Blood of Christ, inebriate me.
Water from the side of Christ, wash me.
Passion of Christ, strengthen me.

O Good Jesus, hear me.
Within your wounds hide me.
Permit me not to be separated from you.
From the wicked foe, defend me.
At the hour of my death, call me
and bid me come to you,
That with your saints I may praise you
Forever and ever. Amen.

—a favorite prayer of St. Ignatius

 


Prayer

Lord, I believe in you, alive and risen. 
Please help my unbelief—show me your face.
Amen.

 

 

 


Prayer

Christ is Risen: The world below lies desolate
Christ is Risen: The spirits of evil are fallen
Christ is Risen: The angels of God are rejoicing
Christ is Risen: The tombs of the dead are empty
Christ is Risen indeed from the dead,
the first of the sleepers,
Glory and power are his forever and ever.

—Fr. Kevin Schneider, S.J.

 

 

 


Prayer

Lord, these days of  Easter, teach me to be generous,
to serve you as 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 labor and not to ask for any reward,
but that of knowing that I do your will.

—St. Ignatius Loyola


Prayer

Risen Jesus, Lord of my life, give me eyes to see, a heart to mend,
hands to strengthen and heal whomever you send across my path today.
Expand my spirit these holy days of Easter. Amen.

—the Jesuit prayer team


Prayer

O Lord,
in your abundant mercy, you died for us.
Fill us with the light of Easter,
that we might live always
according to the pattern of your love.
Amen.

—William Manaker, S.J.


Prayer

In you, Father all-mighty, we have our preservation and our bliss. 
In you, Christ, we have our restoring and our saving.
You are our mother, brother, and Saviour.
In you, our Lord the Holy Spirit, is marvellous and plenteous grace.
You are our clothing; for love you wrap us and embrace us.
You are our maker, our lover, our keeper.
Teach us to believe that by your grace all shall be well, and all shall be well,
and all manner of things shall be well.

Amen

—Julian of Norwich
