Call upon God for the strength and conviction to live in accordance with His Holy Will. Say this short prayer to God for the strength needed to endure life’s hardships. We need God’s grace and mercy to overcome the pain and difficulties we’re often faced with.
Lord, please remind me that everyone is equally loved by you and created in your likeness. Help me to appreciate everyone I meet no matter how different we may be. May this short prayer help me to see Jesus in every person I meet.
God is there for us unceasingly, but we neglect to ask for his divine help. Talk to God openly and speak candidly to God about your needs. He’s waiting to hear from you. A short, simple prayer asking God to reveal himself in your heart will bring you closer to appreciating of God’s love for you.
So simple to say but so difficult to live out. As St. Paul struggled “…for I am not practicing what I would like to do, but I am doing the very thing I hate” so do we, but we must make every effort to do what is right and ask forgiveness for those times we fall short. Pray that we give ourselves wholly to God and fulfill his will that each of us live our lives focused on pleasing him.
Forgiveness can be difficult but we are all called to forgive others. God’s forgiveness constantly awaits us, may we not hold back forgiving anyone who has hurt or offended us in any way.
A prayerful plea for a change of heart is needed for those who feel alone and hopeless and are longing for joy. Loneliness, hurt, depression can be replaced with joy with God’s mercy and grace. May the Holy Spirit move each us to be Christ bearers especially to the forgotten and neglected in our communities.
Most of us are blessed with an abundance of time but often we squander it on TV, social media and other distractions. May we put these earthly pursuits aside and spend more time with giving thanks and praise to our Creator.
Our pride can get in the way of the graces Jesus has awaiting for each us. Overcoming pride can seem insurmountable but God’s grace awaits each of us if ask for his help. God will help us to loosen our stubborn will and open our heart’s to His will. May we make a better effort to lessen our complaints, opinions and grudges and be open to receiving Jesus’ grace.
