Basic Prayers

The Sign of the Cross
 
In the name of the Father,
And of the Son,
And of the Holy Spirit.
Amen.
 
(Our prayers should begin and end with the Sign of the Cross. It is a reminder to us that the Most Holy Trinity gives the baptized sanctifying grace, the grace of justification, and that we are called to share in the life of the Blessed Trinity.)
 
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.
(This is the perfect prayer that Jesus himself taught; see Matthew 6:9-15.)
 
Hail Mary
 
Hail Mary, full of grace.
The Lord is with thee.
Blessed art though among 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.
(The prayer begins with the words from the Archangel Gabriel in announcing to the Virgin Mary that she would bear the Son of God, and from Elizabeth's greeting to Mary; see Luke 1:28, 42.)
 
The Glory Be
 
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.
(This praise, acknowledging our faith in the Mystery of the Holy Trinity, has been prayed since the early Church.)
Act of Faith
 

O my God, I firmly believe that you are one God in three divine Persons, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit; I believe that your divine Son became man and died for our sins, and that he shall come to judge the living and the dead. I believe these and all the truths that the Holy Catholic Church teaches, because you have revealed them, who can neither deceive nor be deceived.

 
Act of Hope
 
O my God, relying on your almighty power and infinite mercy and promises, I hope to obtain pardon for my sins, the help of your grace, and life everlasting, through the merits of Jesus Christ, my Lord and redeemer.
 
Act of Charity
(Act of Love)
 
O my God, I love you above all things, with my whole heart and soul, because you are all-good and worthy of all love. I love my neighbor as myself for the love of you. I forgive all who have injured me and ask pardon of all whom I have injured.
 
Apostle's Creed
 
I believe in God, the Father almighty,
creator of heaven and earth.
I believe in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord.

He was conceived by the power of the Holy Spirit

and born of the Virgin Mary.

He suffered under Pontius Pilate,

was crucified and was buried.

He descended to the dead.
On the third day he arose again.
He ascended into heaven,

and is seated at the right hand of the Father.

He will come again to judge the living and the dead.
I believe in the Holy Spirit,

the Holy Catholic Church,

the communion of saints,

the forgiveness of sins,

the resurrection of the body,

and the life everlasting. Amen.

 
Act of Contrition
 
O my God, I am heartily sorry for having offended you, and I detest all my sins, because of your just punishments, but most of all because they offend you, my God, who are all good and deserving of all my love. I firmly resolve, with the help of your grace, to sin no more and to avoid the near occasion of sin. Amen.

Prayers Throughout the Day

 

The Magnificat or Canticle of Mary
(Luke 1:46-55)
 
My soul magnifies the Lord,
and my spirit rejoices in God, my savior;
for he has regarded the low estate of his handmaiden.
For behold, henceforth all generations will call me blessed:
for he who is mighty has done great things for me,
and holy is his name.
And his mercy is on those who fear him
from generation to generation.
He has shown strength with his arm,
he has scattered the proud in the
imagination of their hearts,
He has put down the mighty from their thrones,
and exalted those of low degree;
he has filled the hungry with good things,
and the rich he has sent empty away.
He has helped his servant Israel
in remembrance of his mercy,
as he spoke to our fathers,
to Abraham and to his posterity for ever.
 
(During the first words, make the Sign of the Cross. The Magnificat is an ancient evening prayer.)
 
Prayer in the Evening
By St. Augustine
 
Watch, O Lord, with those who wake or
watch, or weep tonight, and give your angels
and saints charge over those who sleep.
Tend Your sick ones, Lord Christ;
Rest Your weary ones;
Bless Your dying ones;
Sooth Your suffering ones;
Pity Your afflicted ones;
Shield Your joyous ones;
And all for Your love's sake.
Amen.
 
Night Prayer
Now I lay me down to sleep,
I pray the Lord my soul to keep.
Four corners to my bed,
Four angels there aspread:
Two to foot and two to head,
And four to carry me when I'm dead.
If any danger come to me,
Sweet Jesus Christ deliver me.
And if I die before I wake,
I pray the Lord my soul to take.
Morning Offering
 
O Jesus, through the immaculate heart of Mary, I offer you all my prayers, works, joys, and sufferings of this day, for all the intentions of your Sacred Heart, in union with the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass throughout the world, in reparation for my sins, for the intentions for all my relatives and friends and in particular for the intentions of the Holy Father.
 
The Angelus
 
V. The angel of the Lord declared unto Mary;
R. And she conceived by the Holy Spirit. Hail, Mary...

 

V. Behold the handmaid of the Lord.
R. Be it done unto me according to your word. Hail, Mary...
 
V. And the word was made flesh,
R. And dwelt among us. Hail, Mary...

 

V. Pray for us, O holy Mother of God,

R. That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.

 

Let us pray.

Pour forth we beseech you O Lord, your grace into our hearts, that we, to whom the incarnation of Christ, your Son, was made known by the message of an angel, may by his passion and cross be brought to the glory of his resurrection, through the same Christ our Lord.
R. Amen.
 
(The Angelus is traditionally prayed in the early morning, at noon, and in the evening. The faithful would stop their work to pray. In many places they were called to pray the Angelus at the pealing of the church bells at 6 a.m., noon, and 6 p.m.)
Grace Before Meals
 
Bless us, O Lord, and these thy gifts
which we are about to receive
from thy bounty.
Through Christ our Lord. Amen.
 
Many families that have lost a loved one add the following verse:
 
May the souls of the faithfully departed,
through the mercy of God,
rest in peace. Amen.
 
Thanksgiving After Meals
 
Lord, give all the people the food they need,
so that they may join us in giving you thanks.
Amen.

The Rosary

The Rosary is a devotion that is dear to all Catholics. It has been prayed down through the centuries and it can be an ideal way to teach the Christian faith. But not just Catholics are praying the rosary these days. A growing number of Protestant theologians are acknowledging Mary's role in the whole economy of salvation and, likewise, a growing number of Protestant faithful are purchasing and praying the rosary. We welcome them!
 

The Rosary is organized into four mysteries and within each mystery there are five decades, most of which recall the significant events in the life of Christ. The mysteries and decades are as follows:

The Glorious Mysteries
The Resurrection
The Ascension of Jesus Into Heaven
The Coming of the Holy Spirit
The Assumption of Mary into Heaven
The Coronation
of Mary
 
The Luminous Mysteries
The Baptism in the Jordan
Jesus' Self-Manifestation at Cana
The Proclamation of the Kingdom and the Call to Conversion
The Transfiguration
The Institution of the Eucharist
The Joyful Mysteries
The Annunciation
The Visitation
The Birth of Jesus
The Presentation in the Temple
The Finding in the Temple
 
The Sorrowful Mysteries

The Agony in the Garden
The Scourging at the Pillar
The Crowning with Thorns
The Carrying of the Cross
The Crucifixion


 

How to Pray the Rosary
 
  1. While holding the Crucifix in the hand, make the Sign of the Cross and recite the Apostle's Creed.
  2. On the first bead, pray the Our Father for the intentions of the Holy Father, Pope Benedict XVI.
  3. On the three small beads, pray the Hail Mary for an increase in faith, hope, and charity.
  4. Pray one Glory Be.
  5. Call to mind the first mystery and reflect upon it on the large bead; then pray the Our Father.
  6. On the ten small beads, pray the Hail Mary keeping in mind the mystery.
  7. Pray the Glory Be.
  8. Many add the Fatima invocation and pray the O My Jesus.
  9. Each of the following decades continue as in the first; recall the mystery, then pray the Our Father, the ten Hail Mary's, the Glory Be, and the O My Jesus.
  10. At the end of the Rosary, recite the concluding prayers Hail Holy Queen, Let Us Pray and the Sign of the Cross..
 
Prayers of the Rosary
 

The Sign of the Cross

In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.

The Apostle's Creed

 
I believe in God, the Father Almighty, Creator of heaven and earth; and in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord; Who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died and was buried. He descended into hell; the third day He rose again from the dead; He ascended into heaven, sits at the right hand of God, the Father Almighty; from thence He shall come to judge the living and the dead. I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy Catholic Church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and life everlasting. Amen.
Our Father
 
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.
 
Hail Mary
 
Hail Mary full of grace; the Lord is with thee; blessed art thou among 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.
 
Glory Be
 
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.
 
O My Jesus
 
O my Jesus, forgive us our sins. Save us from the fires of hell. Lead all souls to heaven, especially those in most need of Thy mercy. Amen.
 
Hail Holy Queen
 
Hail! Holy Queen, Mother of Mercy, 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 valley of tears. Turn then, most gracious Advocate, thine eyes of mercy towards us; and after this, our exile, show unto us the blessed fruit of thy womb, Jesus. O clement, O loving, O sweet Virgin Mary. Pray for us O holy Mother of God, that we may be made worthy of the promises of Jesus Christ, your son.
 
Let Us Pray
 
O God, whose only-begotten Son, by His life, death and resurrection has purchased for us the rewards of eternal life; grant, we beseech you, that meditating on these mysteries of the Most Holy Rosary of the Blessed Virgin Mary, we may imitate what they contain and obtain what they promise. Through the same Christ our Lord. Amen
 
 
While most Catholics pray the rosary as per the instructions above, we are going to add some short Scripture versus at each of the mysteries announced and also before each of the ten Hail Mary's. This helps keep our focus on the mysteries and reminds us of the scriptural basis of each mystery. This may also be helpful to non-Catholics in order for them to better understand the Rosary and Mary's roll in leading us to her Son, the Lord Jesus Christ. So give it a try. It only adds about three minutes to the time of praying the rosary. So, choose the Mystery you wish to pray and let's begin. Please see the credits at the end of this section on the rosary.

Angels

Angels are mentioned throughout the Bible. Guardian angels are sent by God to guide and protect each one of us. Other angels, such as the archangels, serve as messengers of God to His people on earth. There are traditionally nine orders, or choirs, of angels: Seraphim, Cherubim, Thrones, Dominions, Virtues, Powers, Principalities, Archangels, and Angels.

 

Prayers to One's Guardian Angel
 
Angel of God,
whom God has appointed to be my protector against all things evil:
be always at my side, and keep me aware of your presence as God's messenger to me all the days of my life, for my good.
Pray for me this day and every day of my life in this world.
Amen
 
Prayers of the Angel of Peace at Fatima
 
My God, I believe, I adore, I hope and I love you!
I ask pardon of you for those who do not believe, do not adore, do not hope, and do not love you.
Most Holy Trinity, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit,
I adore You profoundly, and I off you the most
precious Body, Blood, Soul, and Divinity of Jesus Christ,
present in all the tabernacles of the world,
in reparation for the outrages, sacrileges, and indifferences by which He Himself is offended. And through the infinite merits of His most Sacred Heart and the Immaculate Heart of Mary, I beg of you the conversion of poor sinners.
 

St. Michael the Archangel

 

St. Michael, the Archangel, defend us in battle; be our defense against the wickedness and snares of the devil. May God rebuke him, we humbly pray; and do thou, O Prince of the heavenly host, by the power of God, thrust into hell Satan and the other evil spirits who prowl about the world seeking the ruin of souls. Amen.

 

St. Rafael the Archangel

 

O God,

present our humble petitions to be blessed by you.

Through the same Christ our Lord. Amen.

O God,

Who from among all your angels choose the Archangel Gabriel to announce the mystery of the Incarnation,

mercifully grant that we who solemnly remember him on earth may feel the benefits of his patronage in heaven,

who lives and reigns for ever and ever. Amen.

Formation of Conscience
 

O Jesus, help me to form my conscience in accordance with right reason and the will of the Father.
Help me to reflect and examine my innermost self,
To absorb the lifeblood of conscience, the Word of God and Sacred Tradition,
To follow the teachings of the Church that flow from your natural and divine revelation,
To seek the wise and the writings of the spiritual masters who have walked the walk of holiness,
To realize that a good end does not justify an evil means, and that I should do nothing that I would not want done to me,
To have a correct conscience so that I may turn away from blind choices in order to be guided by objective standards of moral conduct.
Help me, O Sweet Jesus, to avoid sin which dulls and even deadens my conscience and the ability to see the truth.
O Sweet Jesus, help me to form my conscience so that my whole being may engender a free and peaceful heart.

 
Petitions
 

When I pray, O Lord, I affirm my relationship with you.
In my asking, beseeching, pleading, invoking, entreating, and crying I show my need and love for you.
In my petition I recognize I am needy of love, of forgiveness, and of salvation.
When I pray, O Lord, I affirm my need for, you, a Savior.

 
Intercessions
 

Thank you, O Lord, for the gift of sharing in your intercessory power.
Teach me to intercede with you, in you, and through you for the good of my soul, my neighbors, my enemies, the souls in purgatory, and the world.
Thank you, O Lord, for the supernatural gift of changing the world.

 
Discernment of Spirits
 

O Lord, help me to be aware of the false prophets who dress in sheep’s clothing and seek the destruction of my soul and the souls of others.
Grant me your gifts of prudence and counsel so that I may conquer the spirit of the devil and the world.

O Lord, help me to see the fangs of the devil as they drag me into pride, discouragement, despair, scrupulosity, boasting, dissension, hatreds, false humility, presumption, fear of correction, self-infatuation, bitter zeal, forgetfulness, lack of obedience, and an intense dislike for mortification.

O Lord, help me to avoid the mirage of the world which seeks to water down and eliminate faith, hope, and love, a world marked with self-centeredness and self-will, a world marked by irritation, indifference, tepidity, mediocrity, and false moderation.

O Lord, grant me your spirit, your love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control.  O grant me the gift of self-knowledge so that I may do all for your honor and glory and for the good of my eternal destiny.  Grant me authentic zeal, an interior joy, a forgetfulness of self, an ability to embrace suffering, mortification, and the cross with discretion, obedience, calm and peace.  Grant me the gift to shun the world’s standards of success and the world’s scorn and to see in others your very presence.

 
Purgatory
 

I will do my purgatory here on earth or in the afterlife.
Lord, help me to purify my faculties so that I may experience liberty,
To purify my being so that I may live in a state of existence where nature and grace complement each other, where my body does not become a hindrance to my soul. 
Cleanse me of those things which hinder my happiness and peace and spiritual life.
Cleanse my imagination by reason illumined by faith.
Help my imagination and will compliment my intellect in its proper functioning.
Cleanse and heal my memory of all that hinders and stunts my spiritual growth--that hinders the proper functioning of my memory directed by hope and focused on God.
Cleanse my intellect of ignorance and the things of the world, of spiritual and intellectual pride, of sloth, indifference, rash judgments, and spiritual and intellectual blindness.
Heal my intellect with your healing ointment of faith by enlightening my reason, and by making me adhere to truth and grow in understanding.
Cleanse my will so that it may be nourished by the intellect and the imagination and directed toward the universal good of love of God.
Cleanse me of personal sin, self-centeredness, and egoism which deeply wounds my will.
Infuse me with your gift of love so that my thoughtlessness, agitation, discouragement, dissension, trouble-making, anxiety, my need for control and my aversion for sacrifice may be overcome with the gift of being other-centered.
I will do my purgatory here on earth or in the afterlife.
Lord, help me to purify my faculties so that I may experience liberty. Cleanse me of all that is not for your honor and glory.

 

Love

 
O God, may I love!
God is love and whoever does not know love does not know God.
Love makes me appear outwardly what I am inwardly.  It makes me do all for the honor and glory of God and with my eternal destiny in mind. 
It never seeks to justify or rationalize the evil I do. 
It never longs for special attention or affection to the exclusion of others.
It makes me realize that if I desire forgiveness then I must forgive. 
It makes me realize the wounds to love--the wounds of jealousy, boastfulness, arrogance, rudeness, resentment, and rejoicing in the misfortunes of others.
It makes me realize that I must be patient, kind, joyful, faithful, hopeful, and enduring.
O precious God, may I love, for to love is to be with you and in you.
 
Gratitude
 

Thank you, Father, for all you do is directed toward my salvation.
Thank you, Father, for hard work rather than rest--for in work I build up your kingdom,
For the cross rather than comfort, for in the cross is my purification and salvation,
For the dryness in prayer, for dryness in prayer helps me to love you for simply being you as opposed to loving you for what I can acquire from you,
For being relegated to the lowest places for in your kingdom I will enjoy the most precious.
Thank you, God, for punishments, chastisements, and afflictions, for through them you teach me the value of humility, generosity, chastity, mildness, temperance, and diligence.
Thank you, Father, for all you do is directed toward my salvation.

 
Comfort
 

O Lord help me to love what I ought to love, know what I ought to know, loathe what I ought to loathe, and ignore what I ought to ignore.
O Lord when I am defiled by sins, be my comfort.
When I am enmeshed in disquietude and carnal thoughts, be my comfort.
When I am overwhelmed by doubts and fears, be my comfort.
When I am attacked by unceasing cares, curiosities and endless vanities, comfort me.
When I am blinded by errors, vexed by temptations, and torn down by the world’s allurements, comfort me.
O Lord, be my comfort in my exile by giving me the strength to die to self so that you may be all in all. 
When evil people prosper and my good intentions fail, be my comfort.
When others are listened to and I am ignored, be my comfort.
When others are accepted and I am refused, be my comfort.
When others are promoted and fondly thought of, and I am judged unfit, be my comfort.

 
In Grace
 

In grace I move in total genuineness, in total and full human-ness.
I am awakened, purified, and illuminated to my eternal destiny.
I see reality as it really is, as it is seen through your eyes.
I am justified, sanctified, and deified, glorified, and a co-heir with you, O Lord.
I am supernatural, gratuitous, and in the process of being perfected.
When I look to the core of who I am, I find you, O Lord; I find grace.

 
Christ Be My Guide
 

Christ be my guide.
Lord Jesus, help me to meditate on your life in the Scriptures, for ignorance of the Scriptures is ignorance of you and your will. 
O Lord, teach me joyful humility in the mystery of the annunciation, charity in the visitation, love of God in the nativity, purity in the presentation, and obedience in the finding in the temple.
O Lord, teach me in your sorrowful mysteries, repentance in the agony in the garden, mortification at the pillar, humility at the crowning of thorns, patience at the carrying of the cross, and love of enemies in your crucifixion. 
O Lord, in your glorious mysteries grant me faith in the mystery of the resurrection, hope in the ascension, zeal in the descent of the Holy Spirit, a happy death in the assumption of Mary, and a special love for Mary in the coronation of your Mother.
O Lord, in your luminous mysteries enlighten me to the gift of the Trinity in the baptism in the Jordan, to Mary’s intercessory power at the wedding feast at Cana, to the gift of the kingdom of God in the proclamation of the Gospel, to your identity as the fulfillment of the law and the prophets, and to the power of the Eucharist as the source and summit of my life.
Christ be my guide.
