Prayer in Time of Suffering
Behold me, my beloved Jesus, weighed down under the burden of my trials and sufferings, I cast myself at Your feet, that You may renew my strength and my courage, while I rest here in Your Presence. Permit me to lay down my cross in Your Sacred Heart, for only Your infinite goodness can sustain me; only Your love can help me bear my cross; only Your powerful hand can lighten its weight. 0 Divine King, Jesus, whose heart is so compassionate to the afflicted, I wish to live in You; suffer and die in You. During my life be to me my model and my support; At the hour of my death, be my hope and my refuge. Amen.
A Prayer for Those in Temptation
Let me not deceive myself...
 I know what I am considering is wrong.
 Let me not be swept away by its immediate
 God the Father, watch over me.
 Christ our Lord, strengthen me.
 The Holy Spirit, live in me. Amen.
A Prayer for Those Who Need Courage
Dear Lord, teach me to be generous;
To give and not to count the cost;
To fight and not to heed the wounds;
To work and ask for no reward,
Save that of knowing I am doing
Your will. Amen.
A Prayer for Those in Stress
God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change...
Courage to change the things I can, and wisdom to know the difference.
A Prayer for All Who Work
Direct us, 0 Lord, in all our work-with pride in craftsmanship, conviction in purpose and strength in difficulty. Sustain and preserve our good efforts. And, finally, by Your mercy, grant us eternal rest from all labor. Amen.
Graduation Prayer
I have knowledge, so will You show me now,
How to use it wisely and find a way somehow
To make the world I live in a little better place,
And make life with its problems a little bit easier to face.
Grant me faith and courage and put purpose in my days,
And show me how to serve Thee in effective ways.
So my education, my knowledge and my skill
May find their ture fulfillment as I learn to do Thy will.
And may I ever be aware in everything I do,
That knowledge comes from learning, and wisdom comes from You.
