Daily Prayer

March 15, 2018

Dear Lord,
I know you receive what is in my heart.
Let me be inspired by your words and by the actions of your son, Jesus.
Guide me to make sacrifices this Lent in the spirit of self-denial
And with greater attention to you and to those around me.
Help me to believe that you will grant me this because of the sacrifice Jesus made for me.
May the Lord bless us, protect us from all evil and bring us to everlasting life. Amen.

Marianist 3 O'Clock Prayer

Lord, Jesus,
You were lifted up on the wood of the cross to draw all people to yourself; you shed your life's blood so that sin may be forgiven and we might have life to the full.
By embracing this holy mystery of our salvation, may we become your beloved disciples, accepting from your outstretched arms your gift of Mary as our Mother.
May we learn from her, to treasure and ponder your Cross and Resurrection so that one day, with you as our Lord and God, with John our patron and model, and with Mary, our joy and our hope, we may all be gathered together around the Tree of Eternal Life.
And may the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit be glorified in all places through the Immaculate Virgin Mary. Amen.
