Help with praying for the the one who wishes me pain

http://www.usccb.org/bible/readings/bible/luke/18:9 *

The Phrase: Jesus addressed this parable to those who were convinced of their own righteousness and despised everyone else.

The Feeling
Anguish with moderns whose belief in personal truths trump The Truth of Ultimate Love, received from God and humbly offered back to Him and neighbor.

The Sense
Lord, You know the bad within me and my desire to do good in Your eyes. In Your love and sacrifice I am justified, not in exalting my own efforts to be holy, but in exulting the Cross which expiates my sins against You! Even with You before me, I become distracted and fall short. But I know Your mercy welcomes me to recover and keep trying. May I not despise the “despisable” but humbly seek You within all, and know that, unworthy as I am, yet You would deem to dwell in me, too.

The Act
Pray for those whose acts seem despicable.

Prayer to St. Michael

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 hosts, by
the power of God, thrust into hell Satan, and all
the evil spirits, who prowl about the world seeking
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.

E24-240

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.

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.

For Help in Trials

Most holy apostle St. Jude, faithful servant and friend of Jesus, the name of the traitor who delivered your beloved Master into the hands of His enemies has caused you to be forgotten by many. But the Church honors and invokes you universally as the patron of hopeless cases–of things despaired of. Pray for me who feels so hopeless. Make use, I implore you, of that particular privilege accorded to you of bringing visible and speedy help where help is almost despaired of. Come to my assistance in this great need, that I may receive the consolations and succor of heaven in all my necessities, tribulations and sufferings, in particular (indmb), and that I may bless God with you and all the elect throughout eternity. I promise you, O Blessed St. Jude, to be ever mindful of this great favor, and I will never cease to honor you as my special and powerful patron, and to do all in my power to encourage devotion to you. 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 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.
