Lord help me.
I really need your help. You promised to help
all who come to you, So I know You will help me.
A Student’s Prayer
Lord there are many things in my life that need your help.
I need help in understanding my studies and passing my exams.
Also help is needed in managing my finances
and my relationships with others.
But most of all I need your help to do what is right,
when so many advise me to do whatever I want.
Prayer for Employment
Jesus, you gave us the Lord's Prayer.
You told us to include the words, "give us this day our daily bread."
Lord, I desperately need to find a job,
so that I can pay my bills and put food on the table.
So far the people that I have contacted
and the resumes that I have sent
have not led to a full-time job.
Now I turn to you and ask for your help.
Jesus I know you will hear and answer my prayers.
I will continue to look for work and to trust in your loving care.
Prayer of Those Living Alone
Heavenly Father, my true Provider, in all my daily needs, protect and guide me.
Spare me from fire and flood, from thieves, fear and evil in any form.
If sickness or accident befall me, send a messenger of love to attend me. When I am feeling low, lift up my heart.
Lord help me... I live alone dear Lord, yet because I know your presence is ever near, I will have no fear. Amen.
Prayer of Parents
Grant us, 0 Lord Jesus, to imitate faithfully the example of your Holy Family and to make our home another Nazareth.
May peace, love and happiness prevail.
Grant us the grace to be the parents we should be for our children.
Grant that our children may find solid support for their human dignity
and for their growth in truth and love within the embrace of our home.
When the time comes for each of us to go to the ever-lasting home you have prepared for us, may your glorious Mother and St. Joseph take us to you,
after the final grace of a happy death. Amen.
Prayer of a Separated or Divorced Person
Father, I belong to you.
I place myself anew in your hands and acknowledge you as Master and Lord of my life.
Grant me the gift of a forgiving heart and cleanse me of any anger, hostility or revenge.
Heal my hurts and wounds and teach me to rely on your love.
Grant me wisdom of heart and strengthen me by your grace to move on in faith, in trust and in love.
