PRAYERS

Prayer to Our Lady
Take my hand, O Blessed Mother,
Hold it firmly lest I fall,
I am nervous when I’m walking,
so to thee I humbly call.
Guide me over every crossing,
Watch me when I’m on the stairs,
Help me with my undertakings,
Lessen many of my cares.
Then when darkness falls around me,
And I fear to be alone,
Take my hand O Blessed Mother,
Once again guide me home.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Let the day come, Lord.
(based on a prayer by Lucien Deiss)
Let the day come, Lord
when our worry will find your mercy.
Let the day come, Lord,
when our poverty will find your riches.
Let the day come, Lord
when our path will find the way to your house.
Let the day come, Lord
when our sickness will find your healing.
Let the day come, Lord
when our tears will find your smile.
Let the day come, Lord
when our joy will find your heaven.
Let the day come, Lord
when our Church will find the Kingdom.
May you blest, Father for that day
when our eyes will find your face!
You have never ceased to walk before us.
in your Son Jesus Christ,
our Saviour and our brother who
lives and reigns for ever and ever.
Amen.
