Morning Prayer

Let the splendour of the resurrection, light up our hearts and minds, Lord, scattering the shadows of death and bringing us to radiance of eternity.  We make our prayer through Our Lord Jesus Christ,

Who lives and reigns with you in the unity of  The Holy Spirit for ever and ever


Lord God,
I have no idea where I am going
I do not see the road clearly ahead
I cannot see for certain where I will end
But I know that you will lead me by the right road


Prayer to your Guardian Angel

My Good Angel, messenger of God, protect my body and soul.

Protect me from evil spirits and above all else from sin

Angel of God, my guardian dear, to whom God's love entrusts you here,
Ever this day, be at my side to light and guard, to rule and guide.
Dear Angel, in his goodness, God gave you to me to guide and enlighten me , and to bring me back to the right way when I go astray.
Encourage me when I am disheartened and instruct me when I err in judgement
Help me to become more Christ Like,
so that some day I may be accepted into the company of Angels and Saints into Heaven


Prayer for troubled or distressed

O Lord we humbly beseech you of your goodness, to comfort and succour all those who, in this transitory life, are in trouble, sorrow, need, sickness, or any other adversity.  Help us to minister to them and endow us with the grace of sympathy and compassion so that we may bring healing, through Jesus Christ Our Lord

Prayer for help

Grant us, O Lord, ever to find you an ever present help in times of trouble.  When we are in darkness of doubt or perplexity, shed your light upon our way.  When we are burdened with the affairs of you daily life, lift us to the calm of your presence.  When we are battling with temptation and the flesh is weak, by the light of your spirit make us strong enough to overcome it.  We ask these things through Him in whom we are more than conquerors, your son Jesus Christ, Our Lord.
