For all religious organizations in my university, especially the one that caters to on-campus residents

Religious organizations at my university usually have few members compared to other organizations, but I heard that this year, they have fewer members than usual. One such organization is especially in a bad state as very few people commit to it. What exacerbates the situation is that very few people care about the faith anymore :frowning:

Here is what I pray:
God, come to our assistance! Lord, make haste to help us!
Let us go to the house of the Lord
I rejoiced with those who said to me
‘Let us go to the house of the Lord.’
Our feet are standing in your gates, Jerusalem
Like a city built together
Where the people of God go up
To praise the name of the Lord

For peace for all Jerusalem
And loved ones this we pray
May all men be secure where they must live
And to all my friends and brothers
May the peace be within you
For the sake of the house of the Lord.

Glory be…

Praying with you.

Saint 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 you, O’ Prince of the Heavenly host, by the power of God thrust into Hell Satan and all the other evil spirits who prowl about the world for the ruin of souls.

Amen.

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, full of grace, the Lord is with thee.

Blessed are you among women, and blessed is the fruit of your womb Jesus.

Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death.

Amen.

Amen.

Gracious and merciful Father, please come to their assistance.

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, 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 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.

As liturgy96 said, people are not interested
in faith groups anymore, let us pray that just
as Christ was raised from the dead, those
who believe in Him will have their minds on
things above, not on earthly things, for we,
the Church, died and our life is hid w/ Christ
in God.(Col. 3:3).

Holy, holy, holy, Lord God of hosts,
heaven and earth are FULL of your glory.
Hosanna in the highest!
Blessed is He who comes in the Name of
the Lord. Hosanna in the highest!
Amen.

Here’s what I posted about the
meaningfulness of the sacrifice
of the mass:

Our help is in the name of the Lord, who made heaven and earth.

Lord, hear my prayer, and let my cry come unto You!

Glory be…

All you religious men and women, pray for us! St. Aaron, pray for us!

Amen!

St. Aaron of Aleth, hermit

God of mercy, hear our prayer! Send Your Holy Spirit upon us that we may seek You in the Sacraments, especially the Eucharist, where You are truly present. Grant that we may never take for granted Your Son’s gift to us, Our Father…

Divine Physician, help us to see our need for spiritual healing, which can only come from the Sacraments. Mary, Ark of the Covenant, be with us as we seek to be more like Your Son (and as we strive to receive him worthily!) Hail Mary…

May more people join me as I go up to the altar of God, to the God who is the joy of my youth! Glory be…

Our help is in the name of the Lord, who made heaven and earth. Glory be…

Praying…

*O most beautiful Flower of Mount Carmel, Fruitful Vine, Splendor of Heaven, who brought forth the Son of God still remaining a Virgin, assist us in this necessity. O Star of the Sea, help us, and show us that you are our Mother.

O Holy Mary, Mother of God, Queen of Heaven and earth, we humbly ask you from the depths of our heart to help us in this necessity. There are none who can withstand your power. O show us that you are our Mother.

O Mary, conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse to thee. Sweet Mother, we place this cause in your hands. Amen*

Lord of mercy, hear us! By Your most holy birth, hear us! By the merits of Your passion, death and resurrection, hear us!

Blessed Mother of God, we commend this cause to your hands.

**Prayer to Saint 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

Amen.

The Memorare
Remember,
O most gracious Virgin Mary,
that never was it known,
that anyone who fled to thy protection,
implored thy help
or sought thy intercession,
was left unaided.
Inspired by this confidence, I fly unto thee,
O Virgin of virgins, my Mother.
To thee I come, before thee I stand,
sinful and sorrowful.
O Mother of the Word Incarnate,
despise not my petition,
but in thy mercy hear and answer me.
Amen.

**Prayer Against Depression
**………….By St Ignatius of Loyola
O Christ Jesus
When all is darkness
And we feel our weakness and helplessness,
Give us the sense of Your Presence,
Your Love and Your Strength.
Help us to have perfect trust
In Your protecting love
And strengthening power,
So that nothing may frighten or worry us,
For, living close to You,
We shall see Your Hand,
Your Purpose, Your Will through all things.
