Devotion Prayer – 1
Creator Spirit, come and visit the souls that are Yours:
fill with heavenly grace the hearts that You created.
You are called by the names of Paraclete,
gift of God most high, spring of life,
fire, love and the soul’s anointing.
Seven gifts are Yours to give.
You are the finger of the Father’s right hand.
You, the clear promise of the Father,
give men’s tongues the grace of speech.
Kindle a light in our minds,
pour love into our hearts
and uphold with Your unfailing strength
the frailty of our human nature.
Drive our enemy far from us
and give us always the gift of peace;
so may it be that,
with Your grace ever guiding us in this way,
we may avoid all that is sinful.
Grant that through You
we may know the Father and the Son,
and may we ever believe You
to be the Spirit of both
the Father and the Son.
Glory be to God the Father,
and to the Son,
who rose from the dead,
and to the Paraclete
for ever and ever.
Devotion Prayer – 2
Immortal God, holy Lord,
Father and Protector of all You have created,
we raise our hearts to You today for those
who have passed out of this mortal life.
In Your loving mercy, Father of all,
be pleased to receive them in Your heavenly company,
and forgive the failings and faults
they may have done from human frailty.
Your only Son, Christ, our Saviour,
suffered so cruelly that
He might deliver them from the second death.
By his merits may they share in the glory
of His victory over sin and death.
For all the faithful who have died we pray,
but in particular for those dear to us,
parents, relatives and friends.
nor do we forget all who did good to us while on earth,
who helped us by their prayers, sacrifice and example.
We pray also for any who may have done us harm,
and stand in special need of Your forgiveness.
May the merits and prayers of our Virgin Mother,
Mary, and those of all the Angels and Saints,
speak for us and assist them now.
This we ask in Christ’s name.
Devotion Prayer – 3
Father, I dedicate this new day to you;
as I go about my work.
I ask you to bless those with whom I come in contact.
Lord, I pray for all men and women
who work to earn their living;
give them satisfaction in what they do.
Spirit of God,
comfort the unemployed and their families;
they are your children and my brothers and sisters.
I ask you to help them find work soon. Amen.
Devotion Prayer – 4
O My God,
I place my trust and confidence in You,
who will reward the good and punish the wicked.
I believe in You and accept everything
You have taught and revealed.
I believe that in one God
there are three Divine Persons –
God the Father,
God the Son
and God the Holy Spirit.
I believe that God the Son became Man
without ceasing to be God.
He is Jesus Christ, my lord and my Saviour,
the Redeemer of the human race.
He died on the Cross for my salvation
and eternal happiness.
O my God, give me a strong faith.
Help me to believe with lively faith.
O my God, all-good and all-merciful,
I sincerely hope to be saved.
Help me to do all that is necessary
to gain eternal salvation.
I have committed many sins in my life,
but now I turn away from them.
I am sorry, truly sorry for all of them,
because I have offended You, my God,
Who are all-good, all-perfect,
all-holy and all-merciful.
I love you, O my God, with all my heart.
Please forgive me for having offended You.
I promise that, with Your help,
I will never offend You again.
My God, have mercy on me. Amen.
Devotion Prayer – 5
I offer you, Lord, my thoughts: to be fixed on you;
my words: to have you for their theme;
my actions: to reflect my love for you;
my sufferings: to be endured for your greater glory.
I want to do what you ask of me:
in the way you ask,
for as long as you ask,
because you ask it.
I pray, Lord, that you enlighten my mind, inflame my will, purify my heart, and sanctify my soul .
O Mary, Mother of God and my Mother, pray also to Jesus for me. Amen.
