Daily Prayer 8/9

Wednesday of the Eighteenth 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:

I pray today, Lord, for the emotional difficulties I have. I also pray for all those who suffer from emotional pain. Some suffer in silence, alone. Some feel ashamed and don’t know how to ask for help. Some lash out, and their pain affects those around them. Some despair, their hopelessness so deep that they hurt themselves. Be with each of us, Lord. Open our eyes to one another’s hurt, that we may treat each other as You treated the broken ones who came to You. Give us hope for another day. Amen
