Lord Jesus Christ, who are called the Prince of Peace, who are yourself our peace and reconciliation, who so often said, "Peace to you," grant us peace. Make all men and women witnesses of truth, justice, and brotherly love. Banish from their hearts whatever might endanger peace. Enlighten our rulers that they may guarantee and defend the great gift of peace. May all peoples of the earth becomes as brothers and sisters. May longed-for peace blossom forth and reign always over us all.
I ran into the people running Holy Land Prayer during a tour of the holy places in Israel last year. They told me about their site and their commitment to connect believers from around the world to the holiest place on earth. I was surprised because I hadn’t heard about it before. When I came back home, I told members in our community about this service and they loved the idea. We now send a prayer together every month, and we Read More...
In the midst of illness, God, I pause to give you thanks: for the glory of creation, which reveals in many forms your matchless beauty; for the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus our Savior; for your gift of my life and the presence of the Holy Spirit; for loved ones who care for me; and for the companionship of the Church. I thank you, blessed Trinity, holy God, for the gifts which sustain me in my time of need. Amen.
Hi, i lost my 30 years daughter on 21 JANUARY 2018. Its hard to carry on. I pray everyday for God’s healing , i was admitted in a psychiatric hospital for depression for a period of 3weeks, still taking anti depressants , praying and praising. Worse, i had a not so healthy up bringing. My mother used to emotionally and physically abuse me, she took away my two grandsons from me, after their mother died, she threw them back at me in the middle of the year. She’s abusing alcohol and smokes cigarettes a lot. My baby brother is on drugs, im the sole breadwinner. Im praying for their repentance and salvation everyday. Saints, please pray for us. My baby is still studying and i lost my dear loving father 23years ago 24 November 1995 , we were very close, i lost my loving brother 11 December 2014, he was my best friend, i cant get over them. I find it too hard to deal with all the loss and grief. I need the face of the Lord Jesus Christ of Nazareth.
I was recently given this prayer by an Eastern Catholic deacon. I love it because it is a prayer of abandonment and trust in God for the daily details in our lives, and expresses well how much we need His help to live each day well. It has become a new favorite prayer to recite in the mornings as I begin my work day. I hope you benefit from this prayer as much as I have!
Hi Sonnie – I have been in yer shoes & I am still grieving the loss of 4 dear friends from suicide … this all happened to me in 5 yrs – it’s an awful ordeal to have to go through . Some days are better then other’s it seems . Prayer & my Faith in God have helped me – being open & honest about what a wreck I am emotionally with friends & family has been a gift I give myself . The healing process is long … I have wept – I have felt guilty – I have been very angry – but God has been there for me every step of the way . I have come to the conclusion that my dear friends were just too sad & weak to hold on to this life . Nothing I could have said or done would have made a difference . God only knows how long our lives will be on this earth . It was His choice to take them to Heaven . I want you to know that I am sending Love & Healing Prayers to you – I hope that in time you will heal – give yourself lot’s of TLC – {{{{ hugs <3 Blessings }}} Just me – Norene a friend who cares ~ 🙂

You are capable of speaking to God with the quiet thoughts in your head and with the deepest feelings in your heart. Within these chambers of our soul is where God gives us answers in return; he gives us answers to our prayers through our thoughts and feelings. To stay in tune with the Lord and interpret his incites more easily, stay consistent in prayer and explore the scriptures. Ignoring the Lord’s insights will lead to more confusion in your life and a lack of peace.

How awful that someone would neglect your heart like that. I will offer that I have relatives in the emergency services and they see so much struggle, injury, and death that they get desensitized to it. I think that is what you experienced. But I want to thank you for the a wonderful testimony I hear in your post. The joy you had with him to the very end. So many relationships just fall apart under that stress and for even less. You just told us with your words how much you loved him, and what you described is how much he loved you. He did not let his fate prevent him from expressing that love to the end. Your love strengthened him and he was strengthening you to the end. As for what happened in the mortuary, don’t let them undo what your husband offered you, reassurance resting in the love he left you with. I offer what Jesus taught us about that. Your husband was not in that body anymore. Jesus said of the moment that our soul leaves the body, “Wheresoever the body is, there will the vultures be gathered together.” Think about how horrible it sounds that our loved one’s body might be subject to vultures, yet Jesus reassured us, we are gone from that vessel. He also said, “Fear not those that after they have killed the body, they have no more that they can do to you.” Your husband was not in that body anymore. Trust Him. They did not hurt him. You will see your husband again. He promised.


The world can be cruel and unfair at times. We see good things happen to good people. God doesn’t cause them, but he is capable of blessing us with his peace. Practice the presence of God and pray. You can find peace by praying and meditating on what is holy. The act of praying allows you to think on purity, excellence and truth; this fills your heart with good.
Merciful God, in the birth of your Son Jesus Christ in Bethlehem you became one of us; you shared our joy, suffering and pain. We thank you for taking refuge in Egypt and for identifying yourself with refugees and victims of political power. We thank you for your suffering on the cross and for identifying yourself with those who suffer from injustice and live under occupation.
I am working in this place for 3 months now…I found out that all of my co-workers fight and hate each other. I couldn’t stand it anymore so I thought of looking some prayers that I might use to pray daily. I deeply believe if I’ll keep praying this, it could make a big difference here. I can’t wait. I really love this prayer. I won’t stop praying for them and for all of us to have peace. I love you Jesus!
Holy One, you do not distance yourself from the pain of your people, but in Jesus bear that pain with us and bless all who suffer at others’ hands. Hallow my flesh and all creation; with your cleansing love bring me healing and strength; and by your justice, lift me up, that in the body you have given me, I may again rejoice. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.
I surrender and admit: I can't control people, plans, or even all my circumstances, but I can yield those things to you, and focus on your goodness. Thank you today for every good gift you've given, every blessing you've sent, all the forgiveness I did not deserve, and, yes, for every trial you've allowed into my life. You bring good out of every circumstance if I'll only let go and believe you. I know that when I pray and give thanks instead of worrying, you have promised that I can experience the kind of peace that passes all understanding. That's your kind of peace, Lord. And it's the kind I crave.
