February 14, 2024 Prayer

Something I decided to "take on" during Lent was to write a prayer a day and share it as a blog post.  I "gave up" sugar and social media, so if you see this post, know I shared it from the blog and I'm not scrolling. ha-ha Also, my coffee is very boring. 

I'm trying to limit my internet time to develop my God-given gifts to help others. It's hard, though. So hard. I like distraction. (lol)

A Prayer by Amy Pointer

 

Dear Lord,

            

            As we begin Lent, and you go on your journey alone in the desert, take us with you, spiritually. Shine light on the things in our lives that bind us to worldly obsession. Show us the ways in which we can make the most of this life on Earth, and how we can use this life to help other souls find eternal life with you in Heaven. 

            As we move onward in the month, remember us, and our weaknesses. When temptation arises, help us be as strong as you were against the false promises of Satan, and be with us as we use our own free will to overcome them. Let us learn from this, let us grow from this, and let these forty days become the beginning of new habits that benefit us for the rest of our lives, rather than viewing it as forty days of sacrifice from which we fall right back into the snares of the devil. 

            -Amen.

            Saint Michael the archangel, defend us in battle. Be our protection against the wickedness and snares of the devil. May God rebuke him, we humbly pray, and do thou, oh prince of the Heavenly host, by the power of God thrust into Hell Satan and all the evil spirits who prowl about the world seeking the ruin of souls. 

            Amen. 

            

            Mary, mother of Jesus, pray for us. 

            Joseph, protector of our Lord, pray for us. 

            Michael, Gabriel, Raphael, and all the angels, pray for us.

            Jesus, pray for us.

            Holy Spirit, be with us.

            God, love us. 

            Amen.
