Prayers of the week




17th – 21st September 2018


Theme for the Week :- Live your Faith


Thought for the Week :- Loving and Serving

“... for the sake of the Gospel” (Mark 8:35)


Monday 17th September

As the seed grows silently in the earth, As the yeast rises in the dough, Spirit of God,

May your power be at work in us. Like a city set on a hill, Like a lamp shining in the darkness, May we witness together, Calling our brothers and sisters to the glory of your light and the peace and justice of your kingdom. Amen

We pause and pray for the people around the world struck by the force of nature, those in North Carolina and the people in The Philippines. We pray for the dead and survivors and all emergency who are helping thy neighbour…


Tuesday 18th September


Lord, you call us to be your disciples, to live out our faith in the simple things we do and say. Help us to be sincere, kind and generous, always ready to give a helping hand. Let us follow the example of Jesus who always went about doing good, wishing no harm to anyone, and forgiving those who hurt him. May we too grow in love and understanding, through Christ, our Lord, Amen.


Wednesday 19th September


Dear Jesus, help us to spread your fragrance everywhere we go. Flood our souls with your Spirit and Life. Penetrate and possess our whole being, so utterly, that our lives may only be a radiance of yours. Let us praise you in the way you love best by shining on others through us. Let us preach you without preaching, not by words but by example, by the catching force, the sympathetic influence of what we do, the evident fullness of the love our hearts bear to you. Amen


Thursday 20th September


Mary, mother of us all, help us to fulfill this mission of evangelization which your Son Jesus has given to his Church. Mindful of your role as Help of Christians, we entrust ourselves to you in the work of carrying the Gospel ever deeper into the hearts and lives of all the people. To Jesus Christ your Son, with the Father, in the unity of the Holy Spirit

be praise and thanksgiving forever and ever. Amen.


Friday 21st September                 Mass at 8.20am in Academy Chapel, give praise for the week and ask for help over the weekend, and in the coming week…


Almighty and all-loving God, through the fire of your Spirit you have drawn the hearts of your being; by the power of the same spirit infuse our lives with your presence,

so that, as your beloved Son was transfigured in prayer, we too may be transformed, and our lives become a flame of self-giving love. Amen
