Prayers

At any time of the day or night we can call on Jesus

He is always waiting istening for our call

What a wonderful blessing

No phone needed no e-mails just a whisper

 

The Sign of the Cross


In the Name of the Father

And of the Son

And of the Holy Spirit

Amen

 

The Lord's Prayer


Our Father

Who art in heaven

Hallowed be thy name

Thy kingdom come

Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven

Give us this day our daily bread

And forgive us our trespasses

As we forgive those who trespass against us

And lead us not into temptation

But deliver us from evil

(Amen)

Priest:

Deliver us Lord from every evil

And grant us peace in our day

In your mercy keep us free from sin

And protect us from all anxiety

As we await in joyful hope

For the coming of our Saviour

Jesus Christ.

All :

For thine is the kingdom

And the power

And the glory

For ever and ever

Amen

 

The Hail Mary


Hail Mary full of grace

The Lord is with thee

Blessed art thou amongst women

And blessed is the fruit of thy womb Jesus

Holy Mary Mother of God

Pray for us sinners

Now and at the hour of our death

Amen

 

Act of Contrition


O my God I am heartfully sorry for having offended thee

And I detest all my sins because of Thy just punishment

But most of all because I have offended Thee my God

Who is all good and deserving of all my love

I firmly resolve with the help of Thy grace to sin no more

And to avoid the near occasion of sin

Amen

 

The Gloria


Glory be to the Father

And to the Son

And to the Holy Spirit

As it was in the beginning

Is now

And ever shall be

World without end

Amen

 

Nicene Creed


We believe in one God

The Father the Almighty

Maker of heaven and earth

Of all that is seen and unseen

We believe in one Lord Jesus Christ

The only Son of God

Eternally begotten of the Father

God from God Light from Light

True God from True God

Begotten

Not made

Of one Being with the Father

Through him all things were made

For us and for our salvation

He came down from heaven (bow)

By the power of the Holy Spirit

He became incarnate from the Virgin Mary

And was made man

For our sake he was crucified under Pontius Pilate

He suffered death and was buried

On the third day he rose again

In accordance with the Scriptures

He ascended into heaven

And is seated at the right hand of the Father

He will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead

And his kingdom will have no end

We believe in the Holy Spirit

The Lord the giver of life

Who proceeds from the Father and the Son

With the Father and the Son he is worshiped and glorified

He has spoken through the Prophets

We believe in one holy catholic and apostolic Church

We acknowledge one baptism for the forgiveness of sins

We look for the resurrection of the dead

And the life of the world to come

Amen

 

Anima Christi


Soul of Christ sanctify me

Body of Christ save me

Blood of Christ inebriate me

Water from the side of Christ wash me

Passion of Christ strengthen me

O good Jesus hear me

Within Thy wounds hide me

Permit me not to be separated from Thee

From the malicious enemy defend me

In the hour of my death call me

And bid me come unto Thee

That with thy Saints I may praise Thee

Forever and ever

Amen

 

Salve Regina


Hail holy Queen Mother of Mercy

Hail our life our sweetness and our hope

To thee do we cry poor banished children of Eve

To thee do we send up our sighs

Mourning and weeping in this vale of tears

Turn then most gracious advocate

Thine eyes of mercy toward us

And after this our exile

Show unto us the blessed fruit of thy womb, Jesus

O clement O loving O sweet Virgin Mary

Priest: Pray for us O holy Mother of God

All: That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ

Priest: Let us pray

Almighty everlasting God

Who by the co-operation of the Holy Spirit

Didst prepare the body and soul

Of the glorious Virgin-Mother Mary

To become a dwelling-place meet for thy Son

Grant that as we rejoice in her commemoration

So by her fervent intercession

We may be delivered from present evils

And from everlasting death

Through the same Christ our Lord

Amen

 

Prayer to Holy Michael the Archangel


Holy Michael the Archangel

Defend us in battle

Be our safeguard against the wickedness

And snares of the devil

And do you O Prince of the heavenly host

By the power of God

Cast into hell Satan and all the evil spirits

Who wander through the world

Seeking the ruin of souls

Amen
