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.
God Alone Is Enough
Let nothing trouble you.
Let nothing frighten you.
Whoever has God lacks nothing.
God alone is enough.
Benedictine Collect for All Souls Day
We suppliants, O Lord,
Pour forth our prayers
For the souls of Thy servants and handmaids,
That Thou wouldst mercifully pardon
Whatsoever they have committed
Through human frailty
And graciously bring their sufferings to an end.
Through Our Lord Jesus Christ.
Catholic Collect from the Mass for the Dead
Hear our prayer and console us.
As we renew our faith in Your Son,
Whom You raised from the dead,
Strengthen our hope
That all our departed brothers and sisters
Will share in His resurrection,
Who lives and reigns
With You and the Holy Spirit,
One God, for ever and ever.
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.
