Prayer

O God, give me the courage and strength to be worthy of being called a Christian.

—Karl Rahner, SJ

 


Prayer

You have been told, O mortal, what is good,
and what the LORD requires of you:
Only to do justice and to love goodness,
and to walk humbly with your God.

—Micah 6:8

 

 

 


Prayer

Open my eyes, Lord. 
Help me to see your face. 
Open my eyes, Lord. 
Help me to see.

Prayer

Lord, grant me the gift of turning annoyance into kindness. Help me to love unnecessarily, seeking nothing in return. Dispose me to presume another’s best intentions and see their gifts, even when I am skeptical. Forgive me when I fail to show kindness, and to use the gifts you have given me. Instead, help me to overcome my fears and multiply my talents in matters both great and small. And, in doing so, may I come to know your joy.

—Fr. Mark Mossa, SJ

 

 

 

 


Prayer

Seek ye first the kingdom of God
And His righteousness
And all these things shall be added unto you
Allelu, alleluia

Man shall not live by bread alone
But by every word
That proceeds from the mouth of God
Allelu, alleluia

Ask and it shall be given unto you
Seek and ye shall find
Knock and the door shall be opened unto you
Allelu, alleluia

Prayer

God be in my head and in my understanding.
God be in my eyes and in my looking.
God be in my mouth and in my speaking.
God be in my heart and in my thinking.
God be at my end and at my departing.

—Sarum Primer, 1527

 

 

 

 


Prayer

It helps, now and then, to step back and take a long view. 
The kingdom is not only beyond our efforts, it is even beyond our vision. 
We accomplish in our lifetime only a tiny fraction 
of the magnificent enterprise that is God’s work. 
Nothing we do is complete, 
which is a way of saying that the Kingdom always lies beyond us…

We may never see the end results, 
but that is the difference between the master builder and the worker. 
We are workers, not master builders; ministers, not messiahs. 
We are prophets of a future not our own.

—Excerpt of A Step Along the Way by Bishop Ken Untener of Saginaw, MI, commonly attributed to Archbishop Oscar Romero

 

 

 

 


Prayer

To be grateful is to recognize the Love of God in everything He has given us – and He has given us everything. Every breath we draw is a gift of His love, every moment of existence is a grace, for it brings with it immense graces from Him. Gratitude therefore takes nothing for granted, is never unresponsive, is constantly awakening to new wonder and to praise of the goodness of God. For the grateful person knows that God is good, not by hearsay but by experience. And that is what makes all the difference.

-Thomas Merton


Prayer

Take Lord, receive,
All I have and possess.
You have given unto me,
Now I return it.
Give me only your love, and your grace,
that’s enough for me!

—”Take, Lord, Receive,” © 1975, 1996, John Foley, SJ and OCP

 

 

 

 

 


Prayer

Give me only your love and your grace, that is enough for me.
