These little...

These little hands are held in prayer
To thank you God for being there
These little hearts speak to you
To ask you God what we should do
These little eyes are filled with love
For God in heaven up above


Father Lord

Father I pray to You
You have guarded me all day
Safe always in Your sight
Safely let me sleep tonight
Bless my friends, the whole world bless
Help me to learn helpfulness
Keep me always in Your sight
So to everyone I say goodnight.

Prayer Before Communion

My God, help me to make a good Holy Communion.
To Thy glory and for the good of my soul
I wish to receive the Most Holy Sacrament.
Mary, my Mother, pray to Jesus for me.
My good Angel Guardian, lead me to the altar of God.
My patron Saints, pray for me that I may receive the Lord with
a heart that is pleasing to him and with great profit to my soul.

My Tender Shepherd

Jesus, tender Shepherd, hear me
Bless Thy little lamb tonight
Through the darkness be Thou near me
Watch my sleep till morning light.

All this day thy hand has led me,

And I thank Thee for Thy care
Thou hast clothed me, warmed and fed me,
Listen to my evening prayer.

Let my sins be all forgiven
Bless the friends I love so well
Take us all at last to heaven,

Happy there with Thee to dwell.

O Holy Jesus, most merciful Redeemer
Friend and Brother
May I see You more clearly
Love You more dearly
And follow You more nearly
Day by day.

Prayer for Peace Among Nations

Almighty God our heavenly Father, guide the nations of the world into

the way of justice and truth, and establish among them that peace

which is the fruit of righteousness, that they may become the

kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

O my God, I love you above all things,
with my whole heart and soul,
because you are all good and worthy of all love.
I love my neighbor as myself for the love of you.
I forgive all who have been mean to me and ask pardon of all who I have hurt.

Nighttime Prayer

Now I lay me down to sleep
I pray the Lord this child to keep
Your love go with me all through the night
And wake me with the morning light


Thank You God

Thank You God for this new day
And for the time to work and play
Please be with me all day long
In every story, game and song
May all the happy things we do
Make you our Father happy too

Psalm 16

A Prayer of Trust

Protect me, God
I come to you for safety.
You are my Lord,
All good things I have come from You.

How good are the Lord’s faithful people!
My greatest joy is to be with them.

You, Lord are all I have,
And You give me all I need.
My life is in Your hands.
How wonderful are Your gifts to me,
How good they are!

I praise You Lord because You guide me,
I know You are always with me.
Nothing can make me afraid
Because You are near.

Show me the path that leads to life
Your presence fills me with joy.

Prayer to St. Michael the Archangel

Saint Michael, the Archangel,

Defend us in the hour of battle,

keep us safe from the wickedness and snares of the Devil,

May God restrain him, we humbly pray,

and do thou, O Prince of the Heavenly Host,

By the power of God, cast Satan down into Hell,

and with him all the evil spirits

who wander through the world for the ruin of souls.

The Fatima Prayer

When you pray the Rosary, say after each mystery:

O my Jesus, forgive us our sins, save us from the fires of hell, and lead all souls to heaven, especially those in most need of Thy mercy.
