A Prayer For Alcoholics/Addicts, Their Families & Loved Ones....
The Serenity Prayer.
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.
Living one day at a time,
Enjoying one moment at a time,
Accepting hardship as the pathway to peace.
Taking, as He did, this sinful world as it is,
Not as I would have it.
Trusting that He will make all things right
if I surrender to His will.
That I may be reasonably happy in this life,
And supremely happy with Him forever in the next.
-By Reinhold Neibuhr
Prayer for the Sick-
Omnipotent and eternal God, the everlasting Salvation of those who believe, hear us on behalf of Thy sick servant, N., for whom we beg the aid of Thy pitying mercy, that, with his bodily health restored, he may give thanks to Thee in Thy church. Through Christ our Lord. Amen.
God never closes one door, but that He opens another. Listen for the door opening and step through.
Oh my Savior, Jesus, I supplicate thee by thy precious blood of the Divine Heart of Jesus, by the intercession of thy Holy Mother, by thy painful passion and cruel death to assist me in these pressing necessities.
Dear Blessed Mother, Jesus Christ, Our Father in Heaven, St. Jude ,please be with us today and everyday. Walk beside my family is this very desperate hour of need. We will only survive through your Grace. We love you Lord. Amen
Dearest Heavenly Father I pray for a favorable outcome today for a relative on his medical test results. Please Dear Father walk with this family and do not give them anymore heartache and pain. Please be with them. Amen

Consecration of Families to the Sacred Heart.
O most Sacred Heart of Jesus, Thou didst reveal to the blessed Margaret Mary Thy desire to rule over Christian families; behold, in order to please Thee, we stand before Thee this day, to proclaim Thy full sovereignty over our family. We desire henceforth to live Thy life, we desire that the virtues, to which Thou hast promised peace on earth, may flower in the bosom of our family; we desire to keep far from us the spirit of the world, which Thou hast condemned. Thou art King of our hearts by our love of Thee alone, with which our hearts are on fire and whose flame we shall nourish by frequent reception of the Holy Eucharist. Be pleased, O Sacred Heart, to preside over our gathering together, to bless our spiritual and temporal affairs, to ward off all annoyance from us, to bless our joys and comfort our sorrows. If any of us has ever been so unhappy as to fall into the misery of displeasing Thee, grant that he may remember, O Heart of Jesus, that Thou art full of goodness and mercy toward the repentant sinner. And when the hour of separation strikes and death enters our family circle, whether we go or whether we stay, we shall all bow meekly before Thine eternal decrees. This shall be our consolation, to remember that the day will come, when our entire family, once more united in heaven, shall be able to sing of Thy glory and Thy goodness forever. May the immaculate Heart of Mary and the glorious Patriarch Saint Joseph vouchsafe to offer Thee this our act of consecration, and to keep the memory thereof alive in us all the days of our lives.
Glory to the Heart of Jesus, our King and our Father! Amen.
a) The members of a family, on the first occasion of its consecration to the Sacred Heart of Jesus, if they recite the above prayer before a likeness of the Sacred Heart, are granted: an indulgence of 7 years; a plenary indulgence, if they fulfil the usual conditions.
b) The members of a family, on the renewal of this consecration each year, if they make use of the same prayer before a likeness of the Sacred heart of Jesus, are granted: an indulgence of 3 years; a plenary indulgence, if the usual conditions are fulfilled.

St. Christopher, holy patron of travellers, protect me and lead me safely to my destiny./ Dear St. Christopher, you have inherited a beautiful name---Christbearer---as a result of a wonderful legend that while carrying people across a raging stream you also carried the Child Jesus.

I had a very urgent request and did not have the number of days specified in the novennas. So, I just said them every hour on the hour for 5 hours and went to bed. Upon arising, I said them every hour for 4 more hours. In addition to that I said a complete rosary, 1st set of mysteries ofered to the Blessed Mother for the intentions most pressing on her heart. The second set of mysteries offered for the urgent intention I was praying for. The final set of mysteries ofered for a person who has done my family much harm. My prayer was granted less than 24 hours after I started praying for it! Here are the prayers I said: 5 day Novena to Saint Theresa the Little Flower, Novena to Our Lady of Mt. Carmel, Prayer to the Holy Spirit, and the traditional Saint Michael prayer, all of which can be found elsewhere in postings below. I also said 2 novenas to the Infant Jesus of Prague:
1. Repeat this prayer each day for 9 consecutive days or each hour for 9 consecutive hours.
-Jesus, You said, "Ask and you shall receive, seek and you shall find, knock and it shall be opened to you." Through the intercession of Mary, Your holy Mother, I knock, I seek, I ask that my prayer be granted. (mention request)
-Jesus, You said "All that you ask of the Father in My name, he will grant you." Through the intercession of Mary, Your holy Mother, I humbly and urgently ask Your Father in Your name that my prayer be granted. (mention request)
-Jesus, you said, "Heaven and earth shall pass away, but My word shall not pass." Through the intercession of Mary, Your holy Mother, I feel confident that my prayer will be granted. (mention request)
2. Novena Prayer to the Miraculous Infant of Prague
-Dearest Jesus, Little Infant, how tenderly You love us! Your greatest joy is to dwell among us and to bestow Your blessings upon us. Though I am not worthy that You should help me, I feel drawn to You by love because You are kind and merciful.
-So many who turned to You with confidence have received graces and had their petitions granted. Behold me as I come before You to lay open my heart to You with its prayers and hopes. I present to You especially this request, which I enclose in Your loving Heart. (mention request)
-Rule over me, dear Infant Jesus, and do with me and mine according to Your Holy Will, for I know that in Your Divine Wisdom and Love, You will arrange everything for the best. Do not withdraw Your hand from me, but protect and bless me forever.
-I pray You, all powerful and gracious Infant Jesus, for the sake of Your Sacred Infancy, in the Name of Your Blessed Mother Mary who cared for You with such tenderness, and by the greatest reverence with which St. Joseph carried You in his arms, help me in my needs. Make me truly happy with You, dearest Infant, in time and in eternity, and I shall thank You forever with all my heart. Amen
You need to know that I prayed like this one other time for a very urgent request and it was not answered. But, I placed my trust in Jesus for this second urgent request and this one was answered! Praise God! Thank you Father in heavern, Jesus my Savior, Holy Spirit, Blessed Mother Mary, Saint Michael, and Saint Theresa for answered prayer!
Jesus set the book of nature before me and I saw that all the flowers he has created are lovely. The splendor of the rose and the whiteness of the lily do not rob the little violet of its scent nor the daisy of its simple charm. I realized that if every tiny flower wanted to be a rose, spring would lose its loveliness and there would be no wildflowers to make the meadows gay.*****
It is just the same in the world of souls - which is the garden of Jesus. He has created the great saints who are like the lilies and the roses, but he has also created much lesser saints and they must be content to be the daisies or the violets which rejoice his eyes whenever he glances down. Perfection consists in doing his will, in being that which he wants us to be.*****
Jesus, help me to simplify my life by learning what you want me to be - and becoming that person. -
Saint Therese of Lisieux
You know well enough that Our Lord does not look so much at the greatness of our actions, nor even at their difficulty, but at the love with which we do them. -
Saint Therese of Lisieux
"For me, prayer is a surge of the heart; it is a simple look turned toward heaven, it is a cry of recognition and of love, embracing both trial and joy." - Saint Therese of Lisieux
Let nothing trouble you, let nothing make you afraid. All things pass away. God never changes. Patience obtains everything. God alone is enough. -
Saint Teresa of Avila
There is no such thing as bad weather. All weather is good because it is God's. -
Saint Teresa of Avila
God, You raised up Saint Therea by Your Spirit so that she could manifest to the Church the way to perfection. Nourish us with the food of Heaven, and fire us with a desire for holiness. Amen.

I have received various "chain letters" in the past; I wish to say that they are NOT sanctioned as devotions by the Church. They are superstitious and SHOULD be disregarded. If we wish to obtain an answer to our prayers, we should pray to God or appeal to the intercession of the Saints, but all "chain letters" should be ignored and thrown away.
