Prayer for Refugees and Victims of War

Lord God,

Please watch over refugees and victims of war.
Protect those separated from their loved ones.
Look with mercy upon those who are fleeing from danger,
especially children who are frightened and lost.
Help us to show your kindness
to those who are suffering and persecuted.
Grant this through Christ our Lord.

Amen.

The Apostles' Creed

I believe in God, the Father Almighty, Creator of Heaven and earth; And in Jesus Christ, His only Son Our Lord, Who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, Suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried. He descended into Hell; the third day He rose again from the dead; He ascended into Heaven, and sitteth at the right hand of God, the Father Almighty; from thence He shall come to judge the living and the dead. I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy Catholic Church, The communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, The Resurrection of the body and life everlasting. Amen.

The Glory Be

Glory be to the Father, And to the Son, And to the Holy Spirit. As it was in the beginning, Is now, And ever shall be, World without end. Amen

Hail Mary

Hail Mary, Full of Grace, The Lord is with thee. Blessed art thou among women, And blessed is the fruit Of thy womb, Jesus. Holy Mary, Mother of God, Pray for us sinners now, And at the hour of death. Amen.

The Our Father

Our Father, Who art in heaven, Hallowed be Thy Name. Thy Kingdom come. Thy Will be done, on earth as it is in Heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our trespasses, As we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation, But deliver us from evil. Amen

A Night Prayer

Eternal Father, I desire to rest in Thy Heart this night. I make the intention of offering to Thee every beat of my heart, Joining to them as many acts of love and desire. I pray that even while I am asleep, I will bring Back to Thee souls that offend Thee. I ask forgiveness for the whole world, Especially for those who know Thee and yet sin. I offer to Thee my every breath and heartbeat as a prayer of reparation. Amen.
