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.

Prayer For Our Beloved Deceased

O God, the Creator and Redeemer of all the faithful, Grant to the souls of Your servants departed Full remission of all their sins, That through our devout prayers, They may obtain the pardon, Which they have always desired. Eternal rest grant to them, O Lord. And let perpetual light shine upon them. May they rest in peace. Amen.

Morning Prayer

In the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, I will begin this day. I thank you, Lord, for having preserved me during the night. I will do my best to make all I do today pleasing to You and in accordance with your will. My dear mother Mary, watch over me this day. My Guardian Angel, take care of me. St. Joseph and all you saints of God, pray for me.

A Prayer for the Souls in Purgatory - By Saint Gertrude

Eternal Father, I offer Thee the most precious Blood of Thy Divine Son, Jesus, In union with the Masses said throughout the world today, For all the holy souls in Purgatory. Amen.

Act of Contrition

O my God, I am heartily sorry for Having offended Thee, And I detest all my sins, Because I dread the loss of heaven, And the pains of hell; But most of all because They offend Thee, my God, Who are all good and Deserving of all my love. I firmly resolve, With the help of Thy grace, To confess my sins, To do penance, And to amend my life. 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.
