  • Prayer to Mary Aikenhead

    O God,
    You gave Mary Aikenhead a special gift of love for those in any kind of need.
    With this in mind and through her prayer I ask (here mention your intention).
    With great trust in your love for me I leave my request in your hands.
    Amen.
  • Vocation Prayer

    Father you have a great and loving plan for our world and for me.
    I want to play my part in your plan.
    Help me to see the signs that you give me. Amen
  • Daily Prayer

    Guardian of my soul,
    Guide me on my way this day.
    Keep me safe from harm.
    Deepen my relationship with you,
    Your Earth, and all your family.
    Strengthen your love within me,
    That I may be a presence of your
    peace in our world. Amen

    - Tom Pfeffer & Joyce Rupp
  • Prayer for those doing exams

    Lord, calm my fear at exam time. Let the work I have done stand to me on the day. Do not allow what remains undone to undermine my courage. Help me to make the best of my knowledge.
    You have a loving plan for the whole of my life and whatever the outcome, exams are part of this plan. Help me to remember that exams are only part of my life and that you are always there to guide and protect me.
    Amen.

A Morning Offering

May my mind come alive today
To the invisible geography
That invites me to new frontiers,
To break the dead shell of yesterdays,
To risk being disturbed and changed.

May I have the courage today
To live the life that I would love,
To postpone my dream no longer
But do at last what I came here for
And waste my heart on fear no more.

John O’Donohue
