Pray Along: Day 9

We have made it to the end of our novena of novenas.  I am glad that I we have done it, but feel that there is still so much prayer that this world needs.  Today begins the novena of St John Vianney.  You can join in on that one by signing up here.  August 15th also begins a Rosary novena for our country and the upcoming election, learn more about that here.  More than anything, we need to keep praying, that is our greatest comfort and strongest weapon.

Thank you for taking this journey with me.  Please stop back later this weekend for my Annual Blog Hop post, and check out all the other wonderful buys available over at Jessica's blog.



Here are the prayers for today:

 Dear LORD, we have made this novena of novenas in petition for the protection of our priests and deacons and for the conversion of our enemies.  Please fortify our priests in heart and mind that they may be graced to easily endure the challenges placed before them.  Protect them from harm and help them to guide their flock through these turbulent waters.  Please LORD protect our enemies and conquer their hearts, lead them to Your merciful and undying Love.  Give them the strength to do what is right and just, and purify their souls that they may rest in Your Peace at the end of their days.  We ask all of this in the name of Your beloved and holy Son, Our Lord, Jesus Christ. Amen.

Memorare (Pray nine times)
REMEMBER, O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to thy protection, implored thy help, or sought thy intercession was left unaided. Inspired with this confidence, I fly to 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.


St Michael Prayer 
Saint Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle, be our protection against the malice and snares of the devil. May God rebuke him we humbly pray; and do thou, O Prince of the Heavenly host, by the power of God, thrust into hell Satan and all evil spirits who wander through the world for the ruin of souls. Amen.

The Prayer to the Sacred Heart

Oh Lord Jesus Christ, to Your most Sacred Heart I confide this intention {name petition}. Only look upon me, then do what Your love inspires. Let Your Sacred Heart decide. I count on You. I trust in You. I throw myself on Your mercy. Lord Jesus, You will not fail me.
Sacred Heart of Jesus, I trust in You. Sacred Heart of Jesus, I believe in Your love for me. Sacred Heart of Jesus, Your kingdom come. Sacred Heart of Jesus, I have asked You for many favors, but I earnestly implore this one. Take it, place it in Your open Heart.
When the Eternal Father looks upon it, He will see it covered with Your Precious Blood. It will be no longer my prayer, but Yours, Jesus. Sacred Heart of Jesus, I place all my trust in You. Let me not be disappointed. Amen.

Pray Along: Day 8

Sorry for the lateness of this post  I was struggling, once again, on how to begin  There is so much to pray for, however, our main focus in this pray along is our priests and deacons  So, I am beginning with a prayer for priests  Thank you for coming along with me


A Prayer for Priests

O Jesus, Eternal Priest, keep Thy priests within the shelter of Thy Sacred Heart, where none may touch them.
Keep unstained their anointed hands, which daily touch Thy Sacred Body.
Keep unsullied their lips, daily purpled with Thy Precious Blood.
Keep pure and unworldly their hearts, sealed with the sublime mark of the priesthood.
Let Thy Holy Love surround them from the world's contagion.
Bless their labors with abundant fruit, and may the souls to whom they minister
be their joy and consolation here and their everlasting crown hereafter.

Mary, Queen of the Clergy, pray for us: obtain for us numerous and holy priests. Amen. 



Memorare (Pray nine times)
REMEMBER, O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to thy protection, implored thy help, or sought thy intercession was left unaided. Inspired with this confidence, I fly to 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.


St Michael Prayer 
Saint Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle, be our protection against the malice and snares of the devil. May God rebuke him we humbly pray; and do thou, O Prince of the Heavenly host, by the power of God, thrust into hell Satan and all evil spirits who wander through the world for the ruin of souls. Amen.

Pray Along: Day 7

How is the pray along going?  Seems I get so distracted when I host one of these, like the forces of good and evil are vying for my attention.  Even so, I can't believe that we are at day 7 already. Thank you for praying along with me.  I plan to attend daily Mass tomorrow and will pray for all my fellow prayer warriors who have taken the trip with me.  It means so much to have others praying with me.

Eucharistic adoration is my favorite devotion and from where I draw the most strength and peace.  I feel it appropriate to include today the Angel's Prayer given in Fatima in adoration of the precious Sacrifice of Christ.  The power of the Eucharist is not something to be underestimated.  St Clare saved her entire convent simply by holding the blessed monstrance above her head while they were under siege.  No weapons, just Christ.  Christ truly is all we need.



The Angel's Prayer (pray three times)
 

O most Holy Trinity--Father, Son, and Holy Spirit--I adore thee profoundly. I offer Thee the Most Precious Body, Blood, Soul, and Divinity of Jesus Christ--present in all the tabernacles of the world--in reparation of all the outrages, sacrileges, and indifferences by which He is offended.  By the infinite merits of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and Immaculate Heart of Mary, I beg the conversion of poor sinners.

Memorare (Pray nine times)
REMEMBER, O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to thy protection, implored thy help, or sought thy intercession was left unaided. Inspired with this confidence, I fly to 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.


St Michael Prayer 
Saint Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle, be our protection against the malice and snares of the devil. May God rebuke him we humbly pray; and do thou, O Prince of the Heavenly host, by the power of God, thrust into hell Satan and all evil spirits who wander through the world for the ruin of souls. Amen.

Pray Along: Day 6

I have felt drawn to St Philp Neri this pregnancy in a way that I can't really explain.  However, this connection is real and I feel that he is interceding for my in ways I cannot see.  I was struggling to find an opening prayer today, my heart is heavy with many concerns for our world and our Church.  There was no clear direction, no prayer that was just laying on my heart.  In a moment of desperation, since it is getting so late in the day, I searched "St Philip Neri Prayer".  The first prayer offered today is the first one to pop up in my search and it is exactly what I needed for today.  God is good, thank you Holy Spirit!




Rejoice in the Lord always, again I say rejoice! (Phil. 4:4)
O holy St. Philip Neri, patron saint of joy, you who trusted Scripture’s promise that the Lord is always at hand and that we need not have anxiety about anything, in your compassion heal our worries and sorrows and lift the burdens from our hearts. We come to you as one whose heart swells with abundant love for God and all creation. Hear us, we pray, especially in this need (make your request here). Keep us safe through your loving intercession, and may the joy of the Holy Spirit which filled your heart, St. Philip, transform our lives and bring us peace. Amen. (source)

Memorare (Pray nine times)
REMEMBER, O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to thy protection, implored thy help, or sought thy intercession was left unaided. Inspired with this confidence, I fly to 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.


St Michael Prayer 
Saint Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle, be our protection against the malice and snares of the devil. May God rebuke him we humbly pray; and do thou, O Prince of the Heavenly host, by the power of God, thrust into hell Satan and all evil spirits who wander through the world for the ruin of souls. Amen.

Pray Along: Day 5

Here are the prayers for today. I have to say that I had tears in my eyes throughout Mass thinking of all the events of this past few weeks.  Hope you all had a rich and relaxing Sunday.

Today, we will pray to the Holy Spirit that the hearts of the faithful, plus those who are far from the LORD may be set ablaze and converted to truth.




Come Holy Spirit

Come Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of your faithful and kindle in them the fire of your love.
V. Send forth your Spirit, and they shall be created.
R. And You shall renew the face of the earth.
Let us pray.
O, God, who by the light of the Holy Spirit, did instruct the hearts of the faithful, grant that by the same Holy Spirit we may be truly wise and ever enjoy His consolations. Through Christ Our Lord. Amen.


Memorare (Pray nine times)
REMEMBER, O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to thy protection, implored thy help, or sought thy intercession was left unaided. Inspired with this confidence, I fly to 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.

Pray Along: Day 4

Sorry, this is late. It has been quite a busy day--more on that later next week.  Anyway, could we please pray that the glory of God may be revealed to all people, not just our priests, who would greatly benefit from an extra dose of grace, but our enemies, that they may meet Christ in the Tabernacle and come to worship Him, that they might know the saving power of God's Mercy.



Here are today's prayers:

O Sacrament Most Holy (pray three times)

O Sacrament Most Holy,
O Sacrament Divine,
All praise and all thanksgiving
be every moment Thine 


Memorare (Pray nine times)
REMEMBER, O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to thy protection, implored thy help, or sought thy intercession was left unaided. Inspired with this confidence, I fly to 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.

Amen.
 
Please return tomorrow for Day 5.  God bless.
