Direction of Intention

My God, give me the grace to perform this action with you and through love for you. For this I offer to you all the good that I may do and accept all the difficulty I may meet therein.

The Lord’s Prayer

Our Father in heaven,
Holy be your name,
Your kingdom come
Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us today our daily bread,
Forgive us our sins
As we forgive those who sin against us,
Do not bring us to the test
But deliver us from evil. Amen.

Morning Prayer

God of Love, thank you for giving me
a mind that can know and a heart that can love.
Help me to keep learning every day of my life,
for all knowledge leads to you.
Let me be aware of your presence
in all things and at all times.
Encourage me when my study is difficult
and when I am tempted to give up;
encourage me when my brain seems slow
and the way forward is difficult.
Grant me the grace to put my mind to use
exploring the world you have created,
confident that you are the real wisdom.

Prayer before Lunch

Bless us O Lord and these your gifts which we are about to receive from your bounty through Christ our Lord, Amen.
