Prayer to Our Lady of The Miraculous Medal

Virgin Mother of God, Mary Immaculate,

I unite myself to you under your title of Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal.

May this medal be for me a sure sign of your motherly affection for me and a constant reminder of my filial duties toward you.

While wearing it, may I be blessed by your loving protection and preserved in the grace of your Son.

Mother powerful Virgin, Mother of our Savior,

Keep me close to you every moment of my life, so that like you I may live and act according to the teaching and example of your son.

Amen.

Prayer of The Sick

Dear Jesus, Healer of the Sick,

I turn to You in this time of illness. Alleviate my worry and sorrow with Your gentle love and grant me the grace and strength to accept this burden.

I place my worries in Your hands. I place myself in Your care and humbly ask that You restore me to health again.

Above all, grant me the grace to acknowledge Your holy will and know that You love me and are with me in this, my most difficult time.

Amen.

Stewardship Prayer

Dear Lord,

I pray that You give me the wisdom to guide me on this faith journey of stewardship.

Help me to understand that everything I have is a gift from You.

Open up my heart and my mind so that I may use these marvelous gifts to give back to You here on earth.

I pray Lord that You welcome me into Your kingdom at the end of my life and that You are pleased with what I have done with all Your gifts.

 Amen.

Prayer to St. Peregrine

Oh St. Peregrine,

you who have been called "The Wonder-Worker" because of the numerous miracles which you have obtained from God for those who have had recourse to you, who for so many years bore in your own flesh this cancerous disease that destroys the very fiber of our being, and who had recourse to the source of all grace when human power could do no more.

You who were favored with the vision of Jesus coming down from His Cross to heal your affliction, ask of God and Our Lady the cure of these sick persons whom we entrust to you (names of those whom you are praying).

Aided in this way by your powerful intercession, we shall praise God for His great goodness and mercy.

Amen.

Prayer of Healing and Hope Within Families

Lord, heal my family.

Help those in my family who are torn by misunderstandings to bond through communication and forgiveness.

Help family members who have drifted apart to reunite.

Show each of us the value of investing ourselves in our families, giving more of our time than our treasure.

Let children bring joy to our family life.

Let the elderly and the young alike share a sense of belonging.

Let us value one another for who we are -- sons and daughters of God.

Help us, God, to love one another.

Amen.

Just a Prayer

Lord,

Grant that we may hold dear the memory of your servant,

never bitter for what we have lost nor in regret of the past,

but always in hope of the eternal kingdom where you will bring us together again.

We ask this in the name of Jesus the Lord.

Amen

If I Can

If I can do some good today,
If I can serve along life's way,
If I can something helpful say,
just show me how.

If I can right a human wrong,
If I can help to make one strong,
If I can cheer with smile or song,
just show me how.

If I can aid one in distress,
If I can make a burden less,
If I can spread more happiness,
just show me how.

Hope


Hope is reaching out for God
And knowing He is there;
Hope is searching for release,
And finding it through prayer...

Hope is happiness and joy,
And rainbows in the sky
Hope is feeling God is near
When you begin to cry...

Hope is looking for a dream
That someday will come true;
Hope is waiting on the Lord,
When your days are sad and blue...

Hope is wishing for a star
That will bring you peace and light;
Hope is striving for God's love
To uphold you day and night!

-- Hope C. Oberhelman
