Pray that we shall be as little children

Blessed Are You Father … You Have Revealed To Little Ones The Mysteries Of The Kingdom

Refers to “Unless you change and become as little children you cannot enter the kingdom of Heaven”

People were bringing little children to Jesus, for Him to touch them.
The disciples turned them away, but when Jesus saw this he was indignant and said to them,
“Let the little children come to me: do not stop them; for it is to such as these that the kingdom of God belongs. I tell you solemnly, anyone who does not welcome the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it.”
Then He put His arms round them, laid His hands on them and gave them His blessing.

Joining you in prayer and reflection on this passage of Scripture.

Mary.

One of my greatest compliments came during a meeting of Catholic men: one of the attendees commented on how I have “a childish faith” (in a good way, he clarified.) I thought to myself, “I’m on the right path now!” :thumbsup:

Praying with all.

I pray that I may always be as a little child in the sight of God. May He have mercy on me and my loved ones, may we always do His will, and may He bring us unto His lap when our days are done.

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.

Praying…

Remembering your intention in my daily prayers. God bless!

Eternal God , in whom mercy is endless,
and the treasury of compassion inexhastible ,
look kindly upon us and increase Your mercy in us ,
that in difficult moments we might not despair
nor become despondent , but with great confidence ,
submit ourselves to Your Holy Will ,
which is love and mercy itself . Amen

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

Acordaos (Memorare)*
*Acordaos, ¡oh piadosísima Virgen María!,
que jamás se ha oído decir
que ninguno de los que han acudido
a vuestra protección,
implorando vuestro auxilio,
haya sido desamparado.
Animado por esta confianza,
a Vos acudo, oh Madre, Virgen de las vírgenes,
y gimiendo bajo el peso de mis pecados
me atrevo a comparecer ante Vos.
Oh madre de Dios, no desechéis mis súplicas,
antes bien, escuchadlas
y acogedlas benignamente. Amén.

San Miguel Arcángel*
*San Miguel Arcángel,
defiéndenos en la batalla.
Sé nuestro amparo contra la perversidad
y acechanzas del demonio.
Reprímale Dios, pedimos suplicantes,
y tú, Príncipe de la Milicia Celestial,
arroja al infierno con el divino poder a Satanás y
a los demás espíritus malignos
que andan dispersos por el mundo
para la perdición de las almas.
Amén.

Oración por La Paz
Señor, haced de mí un instrumento de paz.
Que allí donde haya odio, ponga yo amor;
Donde haya ofensa, ponga perdón;
Donde haya discordia, ponga unión;
Donde haya error, ponga verdad;
Donde haya duda, ponga fe;
Donde haya desesperación, ponga esperanza;
Donde haya tinieblas, ponga vuestra luz;
Donde haya tristeza, ponga yo alegría.

¡Oh, maestro!
Que no me empeñe tanto
en ser consolado como en consolar;
en ser comprendido como en comprender;
en ser amado como en amar,
pues dando, se recibe,
olvidando, se encuentra,
perdonando, se es perdonado,
muriendo, se resucita a la vida eterna.
