Hi everyone, Today 11th August,2008, being the feastday of St Clare, I wish to pray for my daughter Clare, who has just turned 19, and I ask everyone to join me in praying for her that she may be successful in her grade 12 examinations, as she wishes to attend university next year here in Durban South Africa to study to become a pre school teacher. She is very active in our catholic parish and is a member of singles for Christ and a facilitator for kids for Christ.
From today’s Liturgy of the Hours:
Prayers and Intercessions
God put mankind into the world to work together and thereby give him glory. We beg him:
- Lord, make us reflect your glory.
God and Creator, we bless you for giving us the good things of the world
to support and sustain our lives.
Look with favour on us as we start our daily work:
may we work with you and according to your will.
Make what we do today bear good fruit for our brethren:
with them and for them may we build an earthly city that is pleasing to you.
Be close to us and everyone we meet today:
give us the gift of joy and peace.
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 that trespass against us,
and lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil.
Lord God, King of heaven and earth, guide and sanctify, rule and govern our hearts and our bodies, our feelings, words and actions, according to your law and following your commandments.
With your help, in this world and the next,
may we deserve to receive freedom and salvation.
Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
God for ever and ever.
*** Clare will be in my prayers.***
Eternal God, in whom mercy is endless and the treasury of compassion inexhaustible, look kindly upon us, and increase Your mercy in us, so 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
