Prayers For Home

My Jesus, I believe that You are in the Blessed Sacrament.
I love you above all things, and long for You in my soul.
Since I cannot now receive You sacramentally, come into my heart.
As though you have already come, I embrace You and unite myself entirely to you;
never permit me to be separated from you.


Every day I need you Lord, but this day especially I need some extra strength to face whatever us to come.
This day more than any other day I need to feel you near me, to fortify my courage and overcome my fear.

By myself, I cannot meet the challenge of the hour.
How much frail human creatures need Higher Power sustaining them in all that life may bring. And so, Lord, hold my trembling hand.
Be with me Lord this day, to know your guiding hand at work in all, to know your Blessed Presence ever near.

O Sacrament most holy,
O Sacrament divine,
All praise and all thanksgiving
Be every moment Thine.

Angel of God, my guardian dear,
to whom God's love commits me here,
ever this day be at my side,
to light and guard, to rule and guide.

Families need our help this Christmas, but not just for Christmas in the months after Christmas, which many people find challenging.
