A PRAYER OF MANY PRAYERS

"Without Me, you can do nothing."


Dear Father in Heaven, hear my prayer, and do not turn your face from those who come to you in their need. Send, now, Your Holy Spirit, to fill my mind, my heart, my soul, with the words and thoughts I want to express. Give Him to me again through Your faithful handmaid, Mary, the Mother of Jesus.

Immaculate Mary, pray with me, and for me, now, and help me to be worthy of Your Son. Bring me now to Jesus. Through the gifts of Your Spouse, the Holy Spirit, help me to express my belief, my trust, my faith and my love for Your son.

Lord Jesus, I pray in praise, in adoration, in thanksgiving that You are with us. I thank you for my faith, that allows me to know You exist. help me to be more aware of Your presence, Your gifts, and blessings. Never let me forget that all that I am, all that I have comes from You. It is through Your grace, O Lord. Praise be Your name. Help me to better recognize why You came.

Help me, and all Your people to see that Your presence in the world was our redemption, our salvation. Your death and resurrection was a preview of ours. You showed us victory over death, over the world, victory over Satan. Your resurrection promised us eternal life, if we are willing to take up our cross and follow You.

Lord Jesus, You are the way, the Lamb of God, the Prince of Peace, the Good Shepherd, the Divine Healer. You brought us the sacraments, the new Church, a new covenant. Lord help us to recognize it is all Yours; that our only right is the right of choice...You, or the world.

Lord Jesus, help us to see that mankind cannot solve its own problems, just as our own conscience alone, is not enough to guide us. It cannot eliminate all the sin in our life. Our own capabilities cannot eliminate all the sin, the suffering, the pain or the violence in the world, without You. Help us to recognize the meaning of Your words: Without me, you can do nothing. It is all around us. Why can't we see?

Lord Jesus, help me to help Your people; Your Church, Your priests and bishops, Your brothers and sisters of all races and creeds. Help me to help them through the one means available to me...PRAYER!

Lord Jesus, give us all a stronger need to pray everyday. Give us an unquenchable thirst for prayer. Above all, Lord, may Your Spirit give us a greater gift of humility. Help us all to realize we do not have the power to change all the evils in the world. Only You do! Give me and all Your people, the humility to truly understand and follow your words: FATHER NOT MY WILL, BUT THINE BE DONE. Lord, give us the realization that submission to Your will, and answers to our needs, come ONLY through prayer.

Lord Jesus, give us the wisdom to search for You every day in prayer, and to seek first Your will. Amen.
