23rd Psalm The Lord Is My Shepherd

The Lord is my shepherd;
I shall not want.
He maketh me to lie down
in green pastures;
He leadeth me beside the still water.
He restoreth my soul;
He leadeth me in the paths
of righteousness
for his name's sake.
Yea, though I walk through
the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil; for thou art with me;
thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.
Thou preparest a table before me
in the presence of mine enemies:
Thou anointest my head with oil;
My cup runneth over.
Surely goodness and mercy shall
follow me all the days of my life:
And I will dwell in the house
of the Lord for ever.

Cardinal Newman Prayer

May Christ support
us all the day long,
till the shadows lengthen,
and the evening comes,
and the busy world is hushed,
and the fever of life is over
and our work is done.
Then in His mercy may
He give us a safe lodging,
and holy rest and
peace at the last.

Hail Mary

Hail Mary, full of grace,
the Lord is with thee,
blessed art thou among women,
and blessed is the fruit
of thy womb, Jesus.
Holy Mary, Mother of God,
pray for us sinners,
now and at the
hour of our death.

Guardian Angel

Guardian Angel from
heaven so bright,
watching beside me
to lead me aright,
fold thy wings round me,
and guard me with love,
softly sing songs to me
of heaven above.

God Grant Me The Serenity

God grant me
the Serenity to
Accept the things
I cannot change…
Courage to change
the things I can, and
Wisdom to know
the difference.

Prayer To Padre Pio

Oh Jesus, full of grace and charity,
victim for sinners, so impelled by love
for us that you willed to die on the Cross,
I humbly beseech you through your servant
Saint Pio, who generously participated
in your sufferings who loved you so much
and labored so faithfully for the glory
of your heavenly Father 
and for the good of souls.
With confidence I beseech you to grant me,
through his intercession,
the grace of which I ardently desire.

Cardinal Newman Prayer

O Lord, support us all the day long,
until the shades lengthen 
and the evening comes,
and the busy world is hushed,
and the fever of life is over,
and our work is done.

Then Lord, in Your mercy grant
us a safe lodging and a Holy Rest,
and Peace at the Last.
Through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Prayer To Saint Anthony

O gentle and loving Saint
Anthony, you whose heart
was ever full of human
sympathy, whisper my prayer
to the ears of the infant
Jesus, who loved to linger in
your arms. One word from
you and my prayer will be
granted. Speak that word
and the gratitude of my heart
will ever be yours.

Hail Holy Queen

Hail, holy Queen, Mother of mercy,
hail, our life, our sweetness and our hope,
To thee do we cry,
poor banished children of Eve,
to thee do we send up our sighs,
mourning and weeping in this vale of tears.
Turn then, most gracious Advocate,
thine eyes of mercy toward us,
and after this our exile,
show unto us the blessed fruit of thy womb,
Jesus, O merciful, O loving,
O sweet Virgin Mary!

The Memorare Prayer

Remember, O most gracious
Virgin Mary, that never was it
known that anyone who fled to thy
protection, implored thy help,
or sought thine intercession
was left unaided.
Inspired by this confidence,
I fly unto thee, O Virgin of virgins,
my mother; to thee do I come,
before thee I stand, sinful and
sorrowful. O Mother of the
Word Incarnate, despise not my
petitions, but in thy mercy
hear and answer me.

A Prayer To St Francis

Lord, make me an instrument of your peace:
where there is hatred, let me sow love;
where there is injury, pardon;
where there is doubt, faith;
where there is despair, hope;
where there is darkness, light;
where there is sadness, joy.
O Divine Master, grant that I
may not so much seek
to be consoled as to console,
to be understood as to understand,
to be loved as to love.
For it is in giving that we receive,
it is in pardoning that we are pardoned,
and it is in dying that we are
born to eternal life. Amen.
