The Lord's Prayer

Prayer To St Francis

23rd Psalm

Our Father, who art in heaven,
hallowed be thy name.
Thy kingdom come,
thy will be done on earth
as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those who
trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil.
For thine is the kingdom,
and the power,
and the glory, forever. Amen.
Lord, make me an instrument 
of your peace:
where there is hatred, let me sow love;
where there is injury, pardon;
where there is doubt, faith;
where there is despair, hope;
where there is darkness, light;
where there is sadness, joy. 
O Divine Master, grant that I
may not so much seek
to be consoled as to console,
to be understood as to understand,
to be loved as to love.
For it is in giving that we receive, 
it is in pardoning that we are pardoned, 
and it is in dying that we are
born to eternal life. Amen.
The Lord is my shepherd; 
I shall not want.
He maketh me to lie down 
in green pastures;
He leadeth me beside the still water.
He restoreth my soul;
He leadeth me in the 
paths of righteousness 
for his name's sake.
Yea, though I walk through 
the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil; 
for thou art with me;
thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.
Thou preparest a table before me 
in the presence of mine enemies:
Thou anointest my head with oil;
My cup runneth over.
Surely goodness and mercy shall 
follow me all the days of my life:
And I will dwell in the house 
of the Lord for ever.


Cardinal Newman Prayer

Hail Mary Prayer

Guardian Angel

May Christ support
us all the day long,
till the shadows lengthen,
and the evening comes,
and the busy world is hushed,
and the fever of life is over
and our work is done.
Then in His mercy may
He give us a safe lodging,
and holy rest and
peace at the last. Amen.
Hail Mary, full of grace,
the Lord is with thee,
blessed art thou among women,
and blessed is the fruit
of thy womb, Jesus.
Holy Mary, Mother of God,
pray for us sinners,
now and at the
hour of our death. Amen.
Guardian Angel from
heaven so bright,
watching beside me
to lead me aright,
fold thy wings round me,
and guard me with love,
softly sing songs to me
of heaven above. Amen. 

My Rosary Prayer

Prayer of St. Patrick

The Serenity Prayer

What comfort just to clasp it,
My Rosary so dear;
Each mystery brings fresh courage
And drives away all fear.
In prayer so oft repeated,
Yet never growing old,
I read the wondrous story,
Of God’s own love untold.
Each chaplet forms a garland,
To place at Mary’s feet;
Fair buds and full-bloom roses,
Exhaling fragrance sweet.
The Crucifix which crowns it
Reminds me day by day,
To bravely bear my crosses,
Along earth’s rugged way.
I hope when life is ended,
And death shall set me free
Still twined around my fingers,
My Rosary Beads shall be. 


I bind to myself to 
God’s power to guide me, 
God’s might to uphold me, 
God’s wisdom to teach me, 
God’s eye to watch over me,
God’s ear to hear me, 
God’s way to lie before me, 
God’s shield to shelter me, 
God’s host to secure me.
Against the snares of demons, 
against the seductions of vices, 
against the lusts of nature, 
against everyone who 
mediates injury to me, 
whether far or near, few or many.


God grant me
the Serenity to
Accept the things
I cannot change…
Courage to change
the things I can, and
Wisdom to know
the difference.

Padre Pio Prayer

Cardinal Newman Prayer

Prayer To Saint Anthony

Oh Jesus, full of grace and charity,
victim for sinners, so impelled by love
for us that you willed 
to die on the Cross,
I humbly beseech you through your servant
Saint Pio, who generously participated
in your sufferings who loved you so much
and labored so faithfully for the glory
of your heavenly Father 
and for the good of souls.
With confidence I beseech 
you to grant me,
through his intercession,
the grace of which I ardently desire.


O Lord, support us all the day long,
until the shades lengthen 
and the evening comes,
and the busy world is hushed,
and the fever of life is over,
and our work is done.
Then Lord, in Your mercy grant
us a safe lodging and a Holy Rest,
and Peace at the Last.
Through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.


O gentle and loving Saint
Anthony, you whose heart
was ever full of human
sympathy, whisper my prayer
to the ears of the infant
Jesus, who loved to linger in
your arms. One word from
you and my prayer will be
granted. Speak that word
and the gratitude of my heart
will ever be yours.


Prayer to Our Lady of Lourdes

Hail Holy Queen 

The Memorare

O Holy Virgin,
in the midst of your days of glory,
do not forget the sorrows
of this earth.
Cast a merciful glance upon
those who are suffering,
struggling against difficulties,
with their lips constantly pressed
against life’s bitter cup.
Have pity on those who love
each other and are separated.
Have pity on our rebellious hearts.
Have pity on our weak faith.
Have pity on those who weep,
on those who pray, on those who fear.
Grant hope and peace to all.
Hail, holy Queen, 
Mother of mercy, hail, our life, 
our sweetness and our hope,
To thee do we cry,
poor banished children of Eve,
to thee do we send up our sighs,
mourning and weeping 
in this vale of tears.
Turn then, most gracious Advocate,
thine eyes of mercy toward us,
and after this our exile,
show unto us the blessed 
fruit of thy womb,
Jesus, O merciful, O loving,
O sweet Virgin Mary! Amen.
Remember, O most gracious
Virgin Mary, that never was it
known that anyone who fled to thy
protection, implored thy help,
or sought thine intercession
was left unaided.
Inspired by this confidence,
I fly unto thee, O Virgin of virgins,
my mother; to thee do I come,
before thee I stand, sinful and
sorrowful. O Mother of the
Word Incarnate, despise not my
petitions, but in thy mercy
hear and answer me. Amen.

Prayer to Saint Martin De Porres

Prayer to Our Lady Of Knock

Most humble Saint Martin
whose burning charity embraces all,
but especially those who are sick, 
afflicted or in need, 
we turn to thee for help 
in our present difficulties and
we implore thee to obtain 
for us from God health
of soul and body,
and in particular the
favour we now ask….
May we, by imitating
thy charity and humility,
find quiet and contentment
all our days, and cheerful
submission to God’s
holy will in all the trials and
difficulties of life. Amen.
Our Lady of Knock, Queen of Ireland, 
you gave hope to your people 
in a time of distress and
comforted them in sorrow. 
You have inspired countless pilgrims 
to pray with confidence to your
divine Son, remembering His promise,
“Ask and you shall receive, 
seek and you shall find”. 
Help me to remember that we are all
pilgrims on the road to Heaven. 
Fill me with love and concern for 
my brothers and sisters in Christ,
especially those who live with me.
Comfort me when I am sick, 
lonely or depressed. 
Teach me how to take part ever 
more reverently in the Holy Mass. 
Give me a greater love of Jesus in
the Blessed Sacrament. 
Pray for me now and at
the end of my death. Amen.
