Morning Prayer for the Unity of the Catholic Church
Heavenly Father, as we come before you on this new day, we lift up our hearts in prayer for the unity of the Catholic Church.
Your Son, Jesus Christ, prayed that we may all be one, just as He and you are one. We recognize the importance of unity within the Church, and we humbly seek your guidance and grace to strengthen the bonds that unite us.
Pour out your Holy Spirit upon the leaders of the Catholic Church, especially our Holy Father, Pope Francis, and all bishops, priests, and religious.
Grant them wisdom, discernment, and a spirit of collaboration as they work together to shepherd your people.
Lord Jesus, you are the cornerstone of the Church. Help us, as members of the body of Christ, to build upon that foundation with love, understanding, and a commitment to the teachings of the Gospel.
May we be quick to forgive, slow to judge, and always ready to extend a hand of fellowship to our brothers and sisters in faith.
We pray for those who may be experiencing division, misunderstanding, or discord within the Church. Soften our hearts, Lord, and help us to see the common ground that unites us. May our shared faith in you be the source of our unity and strength.
Bless all the faithful with a spirit of ecumenism, so that we may work towards unity not only within the Catholic Church but also with our Christian brothers and sisters across denominations. May the love we have for one another be a witness to the world of your transformative power.
We entrust the Catholic Church into your loving care, asking for the intercession of the Blessed Virgin Mary, Mother of the Church, and all the saints. May their prayers guide us towards a deeper unity rooted in love and faith.
In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, we pray. Amen.
Morning Prayers for Catholics
Dear Lord, I do not know who or what will cross my path on this day. But I know that You are my rock and my fortress. As always You are my Shield and my Strong Tower.
This is my Morning Prayer, please help me to attach myself to You today. Also, teach me how to stand strong in You and choose only Your way on this day. Help me walk in Your truth and not my feelings.
Lord help me embrace anything that comes my way as a chance to see You at work and as an opportunity to point others Your way. Father thank You for loving me and nothing can ever take that away from me!
Even if I fail on this day and fall short, You whisper Your unconditional love deep into my soul and remind me that Your mercies are new every morning. That truly amazes me, Lord.
Lord, I give you this day and all that it holds. May I walk in your goodness, knowing that your gentle hand will guide me, and keep me.
Thank You for meeting with me today, and I pray that You reawake me tomorrow with Your exact sweet loving whisper. I can’t wait to meet with You again. In Jesus’ Name, I pray. Amen.”
Morning Offering of St. Thérèse of Lisieux
This morning, I dedicate all my actions to You, my God, with the intention of bringing glory to the Sacred Heart of Jesus.
I long to consecrate every heartbeat, every thought, and even the simplest tasks, by connecting them to His boundless merits. I also seek to make amends for my sins by offering them to the furnace of His Merciful Love.
Furthermore, I implore from You, my God, the grace to carry out Your Holy Will perfectly, both for myself and for those dear to me.
I am willing to embrace the joys and sorrows of this transient life out of love for You, so that, in the end, we may all be reunited in the eternal bliss of heaven. Amen.
Morning Catholic Prayers to Start the Day
Lord Jesus Christ, today, I am not sure what I will encounter as I serve You through my work but I know that You will always be watching over me.
Help me embrace anything that comes my way as a chance to see You at work and as an opportunity to point others Your way.
When I encounter any challenge today, be my refuge. When I encounter any danger, be my protector. When I encounter any need, be my provider.
Lord, Help me to remain attached to you, just like the branches remain attached to the vine so that I can produce a good harvest today.
Teach me to remain strong today and choose to walk in Your path of truth instead of following my futile earthly feelings.
Whenever I fall by the wayside and whenever I sin, whisper to me Your unconditional love and remind me of Your abundant mercies and Your love for a repentant sinner.
My God, I pray that You guide me, guard me, protect and govern me the whole of this day and may the work of my hands bring praise and glory to You. I pray all this through Jesus Christ Our Lord. Amen.
