MY DAILY PRAYER,
Dear JESUS,

Thank you for the gift of life.  Thank you for the gift of sight.  Thank you for all things and especially our heart.

We know YOU hold us forever in the palm of Your hand and shield us with YOUR HOLY FACE.  Yet as years go by, LORD, we fear the yoke of sickness and pain and worry how our lives will end.

And so, WE humbly come to ask You LORD, that when our time comes to leave here below, do not call us by sudden death, not by accident that tears the body apart, not by illness that leaves the mind confused or the senses impaired, not at the mercy of evil forces, not with a heart filled with hate or body racked with pain, not abandoned, lonely, without love or care, not by our own hands in a moment of despair.

JESUS, let death come as a gentle friend to sit and linger with us until YOU call our name. 

Then let us enter YOUR HEAVENLY HOME to be near YOU forever and look upon the divine countenance of YOUR HOLY FACE.  AMEN.
from St. Therese
    DEAR LORD, YOU ARE MY LIFE, MY STRENGTH AND MY HOPE. 
I would rather live my life that there is a God, And die to find out there isn't, than live my life  that there isn't, and die to find out there is.


Lord, I love you and I need you,
Come into my heart, and bless me,
my family, my home, my finances,
And all of my friends, clients,
in Jesus' name. Amen.
