Prayer to the Father During Your Day

Again, I thank You, Father in heaven, for the blessings and graces You have give me this day. Once more I entreat Your continuing protection. Conscious of my own weakness and frailty, of my many faults, I entrust myself to Your loving care.

I entrust to Your protection, loving Father, those dear to me, my relatives, friends, and all those living and dead, who have done good for me and mine by Your holy inspiration. Be pleased, Eternal Father, to keep in Your care Your Church, the Holy Father, and all who serve You religiously. Please assist also all civil officials to exercise authority justly, and to direct all our people according to Your will.

In Your loving and tender mercy, Lord and Father, assist especially those who are poor and deprived, those who suffer, and all who are without hope in this life unless You come to their aid. It is You alone Who can bring great good out of the worst evils by Your unbounded power. So we trust You to curb the malice of the wicked, to convert sinners, and bring us all to a knowledge of Your love.

These favors we beg in the Name of our Lord, Jesus Christ, Your only Son, Who reigns forever with You and the Holy Spirit, One God, through all ages. Amen.

God of All Creation

Your Presence is everywhere, my God. Although concealed, Your beauty can be sensed amid the fragrant blooms and flourishing plants, and in the stately trees with their graceful branches. Your splendor all but speaks from the lofty, towering mountains. Your generosity is seen in the fertile, smiling valleys. The vast seas, too, with their mighty tides and roaring waves proclaim Your power. Thunder and lightning of the summer storm bespeak Your majesty. The gentler waters of brook and stream reveal Your mildness and mercy. Thus, You pervade, my Lord, Your whole creation.

May all the marvels of Your Presence fill us with praise, thanksgiving, and joy. May we ever adore You the Maker, the Sustainer, and the lavish Giver of such good things. May we preserve unspoiled the glory of all You have made for our profit and enjoyment. May we enhance the flowers of the field and the birds of the air by a prompt and ready obedience to Your most holy will. This crowning gift we ask through Christ, Your Son, and our Lord. Amen.

God is My Father

My Father in heaven, how sweet it is to know that You are my Father and I am Your child! Especially when the skies of my soul are cloudy and my cross weighs more heavily, I feel the need to repeat to You: Father, I believe in Your love for me! Yes, I believe that You are a Father to me at every moment of my life, and that I am Your child.

I believe that You love me with an infinite love. I believe that You are watching over me night and day and that not a hair falls from my head without Your permission. I believe that, in Your infinite wisdom, You know better than I what is good for me. I believe that, in Your infinite power, You can bring good even out of evil. I believe that, in Your infinite goodness, You make everything to the advantage of those who love You; even under the hands of those who strike me as I kiss Your Hand that heals.

I believe, but increase in me faith, hope, and love! Teach me always to see Your love as my guide in every event of my life. Teach me to surrender myself to You like a baby in a mother's arms. Father, You know everything; You see everything; You know me better than I know myself; You can do everything, and You love me.

My Father, since it is Your wish that we should always turn to You, I come with confidence to ask You, together with Jesus and Mary, (name your petition). For this intention, and uniting myself to their Most Sacred Hearts, I offer You all my prayers, my sacrifices and mortifications, all my actions, and greater faithfulness to my duties. (If you are making this a novena to the Father, then add this line to this prayer: I promise to be more generous, especially during these nine days, in a given circumstance, to <Name of person>.)

Give me the light, the grace, and the power of the Holy Spirit. Strengthen me in this Spirit, that I may never lose Him, never sadden Him, and never allow Him to become weaker in me. My Father, I ask this in the Name of Jesus, Your Son. And You, Jesus, open Your Heart and place It in my own, and, together with Mary's, offer it to our divine Father. Obtain for me the grace I need.

Divine Father, call all men to Yourself. Let all the world proclaim Your fatherly goodness and Your divine mercy. Be a tender Father to me and protect me wherever I am, like the apple of Your Eye. Make me always a worthy son/daughter; have mercy on me!

Divine Father, sweet Hope of our souls, may You be known, honored, and loved by all men.

Divine Father, infinite goodness poured out on all peoples, may You be known, honored, and loved by all men.

Divine Father, beneficent dew of humanity, may You be known, honored, and loved by all men. Amen.

Amen. 

~~ by Pope Pius VI

Father! We love You. Praise You. Thank You. Father we adore You. How good You are to us! Father You created us. You alone are the Creator. Thank You for our lives, for every breath we take and every beat of our hearts. Thank You. Father, we wish to do Your Will. We wish to protect the innocent little babies. Our unborn little brothers and sisters die by abortion, 50 million every year, world-wide. The horror of this! - never in all of history has there been such bloodshed, such a slaughter of the innocents. Father, forgive us! We need help, Father. How can this be stopped? Only by Your might! Please send Your Holy Spirit to infuse in our hearts a new boldness, a new willingness to stand up, every day, against the evil of abortion and all the crimes against life. We dedicate our lives, here and now to You, Father. You are our Father and we love You. Amen.

Prayer of Thanks

Almighty and gracious Father, we give you thanks for the fruits of the earth in their season and for the labors of those who harvest them. Make us, we beseech thee, faithful stewards of thy great bounty, for the provision of our necessities and the relief of all who are in need, to the glory of thy Name; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who liveth and reigneth with thee and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.

Almighty God who art the light of the world, grant us thy heavenly blessing. May the radiance of Your light illumine our hearts and brighten our home with the spirit of faith and love. Let the light of Your Presence guide us, for in Your light do we see light. Bless us also with Your Spirit, that happiness and peace may ever abide in all men. Amen.

Rosary of the Father

Providence has given into our hands the "Rosary of the Father" in its five mysteries: spontaneous collaboration from several sides has enriched it with biblical references and litanies. This prayer has been approved by the Archbishop of Foggia, Mons. Giuseppe Casale, on November 23, 1988.

The Rosary of the Father, in five stations, helps us to reflect on His mercy, which "is stronger than evil, stronger than sin or death" (Dives in Misericordia, V111,15.) It reminds us that mankind can and must become an instrument for the triumph of the Love of the Father, giving its "yes" to Him in fullness and thus taking its place in the circle of Trinitarian Love that renders it "the living glory of God."

First Mystery: We contemplate the triumph of the Father in the Garden of Eden when after the sin of Adam and Eve, He promises the coming of the Lord. "The Lord God said to the serpent: Because you have done this, you shall be banned from all the animals and from all the wild creatures; On your belly shall you crawl, and dirt shall you earth all the days of your life. I will put enmity between you and the woman and between your offspring and hers; He will strike at your head, while you strike at His heel." - (Gen 3,14-35)

Pray 1 Hail Mary and 10 Our Father's

Second Mystery: We contemplate the triumph of the Father at the moment of the fiat of Mary during the annunciation. "The Angel said to Mary: "Do not fear Mary. You have found favor with God. You shall conceive and bear a son and give Him the name Jesus. Great will be His dignity and He will be called the Son of the Most High. The Lord God will give Him the throne of David His Father. He will rule over the house of Jacob forever and His reign will be without end." (Luke: 1,30-33)

Pray 1 Hail Mary and 10 Our Father's

Third Mystery: We contemplate the triumph of the Father in the garden of Gethsemani when He gives all His power to the Son. "Father, if it is Your will, take this cup from Me; yet not My will but Yours be done. An angel then appeared to Him from heaven to strengthen Him. In His anguish He prayed with all the greater intensity, and His sweat became like drops of blood falling to the ground. (Luke 22, 42-44)

Pray 1 Hail Mary and 10 Our Father's

Four Mystery: We contemplate the triumph of the Father at the moment of every particular judgement. "While he was still a long way off, his father caught sight of him and was deeply moved. He rant out to meet him, threw his arms around his neck, and kissed him. The son said to him, Father, I have sinned against God and against you: I no longer deserve to be called your son. The father said to his servants: Quick! bring out the finest robe and put it on him; put a ring on his finger and shoes on his feet. Take the fatted calf and kill it. Let us eat and celebrate because this son of mine was dead and has come back to life. He was lost and is found. (Luke 15, 20-24)

Pray 1 Hail Mary and 10 Our Father's

Fifth Mystery: We contemplate the triumph of the Father at the moment of final judgement. "Then I saw a new heavens and a new earth. The former heavens and the former earth had passed away, and the sea was no longer. I also saw a new Jerusalem, the holy city, coming down out heaven from God, beautiful a a bride prepared to meet her husband. I heard a loud voice from the throne cry out: "This is God's dwelling among men. He shall dwell with them and they shall be His people and He shall be their God who is always with them. He shall wipe every tear from their eyes, and there shall be no more death or mourning, crying out or pain, for the former world has passed away." ( Rev: 21-24)

Pray 1 Hail Mary and 10 Our Father's

Glory be.....,My good Father....,Angel of God.
