God, heavenly Father, look upon me and hear my prayer during this second quarter of the year. By the good works you inspire, help me to discipline my body and to be renewed in spirit. Without you I can do nothing. By your Spirit help me to know what is right and to be eager in doing your will. Teach me to find new life through penance. Keep me from sin, and help me live by your commandment of love.

God of love, bring me back to yourself. Send your Spirit to make me strong in faith and active in good works. May my acts of penance and charity bring me your forgiveness, open my heart to your love, and prepare me for the time when I shall see you as you are.

Lord, nourish me with your word of life and make me one with you in love and prayer. Fill my heart with your love and keep me faithful to the Gospel of Christ. Give me the grace to rise above my human weakness. Give me new life by your Sacraments, especially the Mass.

Father, our source of life, I reach out with joy to grasp your hand, let me walk more readily in your ways. Guide me in your gentle mercy, for left to myself I cannot do your will.

Father of love, source of all blessings, help me to pass from my old life of sin to the new life of grace. Prepare me for the glory of your Kingdom. I ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, forever Amen..

Almighty and Everlasting God, you have given the human race Jesus Christ our Savior as a model of humility. He fulfilled your will by becoming man and giving His life on the cross. Help us to bear witness to you by following His example of suffering and make us worthy to share in His resurrection. We ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son. Amen.

God my heavenly Father, I adore you, and I count myself as nothing before your Divine Majesty. You alone are Being, Life, Truth, and Goodness. Helpless and unworthy as I am, I honour you, I praise you, I thank you, and I love you in union with Jesus Christ, your Son, our Saviour and our Brother, in the merciful kindness of His Heart and through His infinite merits.


I desire to serve you, to please you, obey you, and to love you always in union with Mary Immaculate, Mother of God and our Mother. I also desire to love and serve my neighbour for the love of you.

Heavenly Father, thank you for making me your child in Baptism. With childlike confidence I ask you for this special favour: (Mention your request).

I ask that your will may be done. Give me what you know to be best for my soul, and for the souls of those for whom I pray.

Give me your Holy Spirit to enlighten me, to correct me, and to guide me in the way of your commandments and holiness, while I strive for the happiness of heaven where I hope to glorify you forever. Amen.


Eternal Father, I offer you the sacrifice in which your dear Son Jesus offered Himself upon the cross and which He now renews upon the altar: to adore you and to render to you that honour which is your due, by acknowledging your supreme dominion over all things and their complete dependence on you, for you are the first beginning and our last end, to thank you for your justice provoked to anger by so many sins, and to offer you worthy atonement for them, and, finally, to implore your grace and mercy for myself, for all those who are in pain and distress, for all poor sinners, for the whole world, and for the holy souls in purgatory.

Heavenly Father, together with your Son you sent the Holy Spirit to your church and her children, and you continue to send Him to work the wonders of your Divine love in us.

Enlighten and strengthen through Him our Holy Father and all the bishops and priests of your church. Continue to confirm in ever-greater holiness all the different states of life and every individual soul within your church, and lead her, immaculate Bride of Christ, to victory over all her enemies. Through the same Christ our Lord. Amen.
