A prayer of welcome

Lord, our God, source of all life,
you reveal yourself in the depths of our being
drawing us to share in your life and love.
Bless each of us as we respond to your Spirit’s
invitation to open wide the doors to Christ.
Make the doors of our hearts,
our homes and communities
wide enough to receive
all who need human love and fellowship,
narrow enough to shut out all envy,
prejudice and pride.
Let us hasten to welcome the stranger,
and so welcome your Son.
We make this prayer in his name,
Jesus Christ, our Lord.
Amen.

Jesus, Lover of chastity, Mary, Mother most pure, and Saint Joseph, chaste guardian of the Virgin, to you I come at this hour, begging you to plead with God for me. I earnestly wish to be pure in thought, word and deed in imitation of your own holy purity.

Obtain for me, then, a deep sense of modesty which will be reflected in my external conduct. Protect my eyes, the windows of my soul, from anything that might dim the luster of a heart that must mirror only Christlike purity.

And when the “Bread of Angels becomes the Bread of me” in my heart at Holy Communion, seal it forever against the suggestions of sinful pleasures.

Heart of Jesus, Fount of all purity, have mercy on us.

Praying for your other intentions. Amen.

Praying to the Holy Spirit to give you guidance, direction, strength & fortitude to overcome your temptations.

Lord release jason of his demons(lust, porn, loneliness, lukewarmness). Help heal his spirit and mind of any hurtful memories. Give him the strength to overcome temptation and to have self worth. I pray that you find a parish that will strengthen your faith, mind and body. In Jesus name I pray. God Bless you and praise the Holy Name of God.

Praying for you, dear one.

praying for you

Ah yes SoCal. I miss it so - lived in that part of the world for 7 yrs. I highly recommend spending time out in the Painted Desert. Get up into the hills and canyons and spend sometime with God. Get out of the city and do some good praying. I will pray for you - I fight the same demons.

God bless.

Any recommendations for a good solid parish in San Diego county?

Jaysdec, It is not only YOUR problem, it is OUR problem,
the whole Church of Christ is under this attack!(1 Cor 6:15)
As for loneliness, NO ONE in the body of Christ has joy
or sorrow or a problem with loneliness ALONE, we are all
connected by a common thread, “Whoever eats my flesh
and drinks my blood abides in me and I in them” John 6:56
And as for tepidness in your Christian walk, Pope Paul VI
noted that THAT is the problem with Christianity in this age,
we got to get up, dust ourselves off and get INVOLVED in
Kingdom building, my friend!

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.

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 vale of tears. Turn, then, most gracious advocate, thine eyes of mercy toward 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 Christ.
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.

Jay, I’ve been where you are at. I am glad to pray for you, but I have to say, if you pray for the Holy Spirit to come into your heart, you will be surprised at the strength He will give you. And of course as soon as you can. remember our Mother Church gives us Reconciliation to cleanse your soul for the Spirit. Peace unto you, brother!

Praying hard.

PATER NOSTER,
qui es in caelis,
sanctificetur nomen tuum.
Adveniat regnum tuum.
Fiat voluntas tua, sicut in caelo et in terra.
Panem nostrum quotidianum da nobis hodie,
et dimitte nobis debita nostra
sicut et nos dimittimus debitoribus nostris.
Et ne nos inducas in tentationem,
sed libera nos a malo. Amen.

Praying that the Lord may grant you strength and healing. Also praying that he may grant you perseverance and all other necessary graces.

O Blood and Water, which gushed forth from the Heart of Jesus as a fountain of Mercy for us, I trust in You!
