Let Us Pray

Prayer to Our Lady of Good Counsel

God of heavenly wisdom                    You have given us Mary, Mother of Jesus,to be our guide and counselor.

Grant that we may always seek her motherly help in this life
and so enjoy her blessed presence in the life to come.

O Mother of Good Counsel, Patroness of the National Council of Catholic Women,intercede for us, that we may be wise, courageous and loving leaders of the Church,

Help us, dear mother, to know the mind of Jesus, your son.

May the Holy Spirit fill us with reverence for God’s creation,
and compassion for all God’s Children.

May our labors of love on earth enhance the reign of God
and may God’s gifts of faith and living hope prepare us for the fullness of the world to come.

Care of Creation Prayer

Heavenly Father,

In the beginning, You created the heavens and the earth, light and dark, sky and waters, plants, birds and creatures of the sea, living animals of all types and then male and female in the image of You.

With all that was created you were pleased and saw that it was all very good.  Millions of years have passed since and mankind has not treated Your creation well.

Help us to be more aware of our use of resources and the products we choose so that we do not harm  Mother Earth any further and so that we care for Your creation as You desire.  Primarily, help us to love each other so that we respect one another in all actions and value all human life from conception to natural death.

Prayer for Religious Freedom 

Almighty God,
We give you thanks for the great blessings you have bestowed upon the people living in the United States of America.

As Americans we are "one nation, under God, indivisible with liberty and justice for all"

We have survived many challenges by those
who would deny our God given dignity and rights as human beings and continue to
stand as a beacon of hope for the oppressed.

The first amendment to our Constitution ensures that "Congress shall make no law
respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof.."

We ask you to help us continue to defend our religious freedoms so that all people of faith can continue to worship according to their convictions without fear.

We pray that our flag will continue to wave as the symbol of freedom for all.

May you open hearts and minds to your will and give courage to those who take action to
defend our religious freedom.
