Thanks God for every moments of your life.
Father, we bring all our failures to you,
in Jesus name.
We have tried so hard and so often to change.
But our problems are too big for us to handle.
Today, we give up and throw ourselves totally
on your love and mercy.
Cleanse us and change us from the inside out.
Teach us how to imitate you ;
To have your heart of kindness and mercy.
Teach us to walk in the spirit every day,
so we can know your power and victory.
We rest in your mercy and faithfulness.

Heart of a Child
Grant me, O God,
The heart of a child, pure
and transparent as a spring;
A simple heart,
which never harbors sorrows;
a heart glorious in self-giving,
Tender in compassion;
A heart faithful and generous,
which will never forget any good,
or bear a grudge for any evil.
Make me a heart gentle and humble,
Loving without asking any returns,
Large-hearted and undauntable,
which no ingratitude can sour;
and no indifference can weary.
A heart penetrated by the love of Jesus.
Whose desire will only be satisfied in Heaven.
Grant me, O Lord,
the mind and heart of thy dear Son.
A French Prayer
A word of love gives spice to life.
A word from a friend gives pleasure and happiness to the heart.
And the word of GOD gives light and meaning to our lives.

I ask God to help me love others, as much as he loves me.
And God said " Ah, finally you have the idea.
LORD, My heart is not large enough,
my memory is not good enough,
my will is not strong enough;
Take my heart and enlarge it,
take my memory and give it quicker recall,
take my will and make it strong.
And make me conscious of thee ever present,
A M E N
God makes us brave when we're afraid.
Makes us strong, when we are weak.
But most of all, He teaches us to hold on to Him when things, keep falling.
God did not promise days without pain;
Laughter without sorrow;
Sun without rain.
But He did promise strength for the day, comfort
for the tears; and light for our way.
God will never leave you empty.
He will replace everything you lost.
If He asks you to put something down,
it's because He wants you to pick up something greater.
may God bless us all.
God judges your prayer neither by its
length nor by its volume.
But He does look at the heart behind the words.
Heavenly Father, we praise you,
for all the grace and mercy you
have shown us in the past.
Teach us to pray more and trust in you,
with all our hearts.
Give us the kind of faith that will wait
patiently for the fulfillment of your promises.
Help us to humble ourselves before you,
and listen carefully to your Word.
Make us holy and compassionate people,
so that others can see Jesus in our lives.
We want our hearts to be your special home.
In Christ's name.
A M E N
If you keep God inside your heart, there is nothing that will come into your life that you won't be able to handle.
O God, who dost teach the hearts,
of thy faithful people by sending
to us the light of thy Holy Spirit;
Grant us by that same Spirit,
to be enlightened in our minds,
sanctified in our hearts,
kindled in love and strengthened
Through Jesus Christ thy Blessed Son, our Lord.
A M E N
Jesus asked me how much I love Him,
so I spread my arms and said " This much".
I asked Jesus how much He loves me,
He spread His arms and died for me...
HEALING PRAYER FOR PAST HURTS

Do you still have memories that occasionally come to your mind and they feel just like they could have happened yesterday?
Let's get on top of your hurts and sorrows that may be keeping
you from moving forward in your spiritual growth.
You need to take a serious look at your past and look at it
fully in the face with courage.
Let me give you a prayer to use.
This is a prayer that I want you to start praying.
GOD does heal physically as well as emotionally.
He can and wants to heal your past memories.
Say this prayer everyday.

"A HEALING PRAYER FOR PAST HURTS"
Lord Jesus, through the power of the Holy Spirit,
go back into my past memory today.
There has been a number of years that things have hurt me.
Troubled my heart and soul.
Every pain that has ever been done to me in my body or my emotions,
please heal those pain. Every pain that I have knowingly or unknowingly
caused to another person, please bring healing to that pain too.
Also heal the pain that I knowingly did.
Help me to remember them so that I may ask for healing to take place.
Please Lord, give me strength to look at those memories with courage.
Lord, if there is anything that I need to do, show me.
If I need to go to another person because they are still suffering from my past,
let me become aware of that person in my memory.
Help me to be humble and ask forgiveness.
I choose to forgive the pains that are done to me.
My tongue will say that I forgive and make my mind and heart
to come into line with your Word.
I also ask to be forgiven of the sins and wrong doings that I have done.
Please remove whatever bitterness and unforgiveness may
still be in my heart, Lord.
Fill me with your Love and peace.
Let me see my brothers and sisters through your eyes Jesus, not mine.
Let me look at everyone with all of the Love that I can.
Please help me to bring about healing in the hearts of all
that I see throughout my days.
I love you Lord so much and I am grateful to you,
because you Love me.
You make me feel special and at peace.
Thank you Lord and in your name Jesus.

Healing Prayer Book
Let me depend on GOD alone;
Who never changes,
Who knows what is best for me,
So much better than I ,
And gives in a thousand ways at all times.
All that the perfect Father can,
for the Son's good growth,
Things needful, things salutary,
Things wise, Beneficent and Happy.
" I will give them an undivided heart and put a new spirit in them;
I will remove from them their heart of stone and give them a heart of flesh".
Then they will follow my decrees and be careful to keep my laws.
They will be my people, and I will be their GOD".
---------- Ezekiel 11:17, 19-20 ------------

------------------ Jude 20-20 ------------------
Enter my heart, O Holy Spirit,
Come in blessed mercy and set me free.
Throw open , O Lord, the locked doors of my mind;
Cleanse the chambers of my thought for thy dwelling:
Light there the fires of thine own holy brightness,
in new understandings of truth.
O Holy Spirit, very God, whose presence is liberty,
Grant me the perfect freedom to be thy servant;
Today, Tomorrow, Evermore.
Trust in the LORD with all your heart,
and lean not on your own understanding;
In all your ways acknowledge Him,
and He will make your paths straight.
---------- Proverbs 3: 5-6 ---------------
LORD, help us to have a listening heart that is soft and teachable.
Save us from being so filled with ourselves that we can't hear you.

Falling in love with the Lord, is the greatest romance;
Searching Him, is the greatest adventure;
Finding Him, is the greatest achievement;
And being with Him, is the greatest source of happiness.

GOD REACHES OUT TO US IN TENDER LOVE; WHEN WE ADMIT HOW MUCH WE NEED HIM
LET YOUR FAITH BE BIGGER THAN YOUR FEARS.
GOD makes us brave when we're afraid,
makes us strong when we are weak,
but most of all, He teaches us to hold
on to Him when things keep falling.
Let prayer be the key to open and close your day
The Eucharist is God.
