Daily Prayer 8/16

Wednesday of the Nineteenth Week in Ordinary Time

Morning Offering:

O Jesus, through the Immaculate Heart of Mary, I offer you my prayers, works, joys, and sufferings of this day for all the intentions of your Sacred Heart, in union with the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass throughout the world, for the salvation of souls, the reparation of sins, and the reunion of all Christians. In particular, we offer up the intentions of the Holy Father this month. That World Youth Day in Lisbon, Portugal, will help young people to live and witness the Gospel in their own lives. Amen


Daily Prayer:

Heavenly Father, today I pray for Holy Mother Church, remembering these words from St. Eugene de Mazenod, founder of the Missionary Oblates of Mary Immaculate:

“She raises her children who have fallen. She strengthens them when they are weak. She enlightens them in their doubts. She causes them to share in the spiritual riches which the Divine Spouse has entrusted to her as a treasure to be dispensed.” Amen


Take the Next Step to Strengthen Your Prayer Life

We all could use some healing in our life. And prayer is the best way for us to communicate our needs with God.

Healing Prayers is a wonderful prayer book created by the Missionary Oblates for all those who long for the healing power of the Lord. For these persons, this prayer book has been written in faith and hope that, united in prayer, we might all experience healing of body, mind and spirit in every aspect of our lives.
