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.
