O Divine Master, you have said,
“Truly I say to you, whatever you ask the Father in my name, he will give it to you”. I ask for help, restoration and comfort for those affected by tragedy especially in the Tanzania and Haiti earthquakes, Ethiopia, Somalia, S.Sudan and all parts of the world where there is conflict and natural calamities.
In your mercy, grant them the strength, courage and healing. May they be speedily restored to health and normalcy so that they may resume their duties and full life.
God our creator, restore all creation to the praise and glory of you.

Lord Jesus, I praise you and thank you for all the gracious gifts you have granted upon us as students. At this time Lord, I thank you for the gift of education. Lord you are the great teacher, I shall not want. You lead me to the ocean of knowledge and answer all my doubts. You Yahweh fill me with your wisdom and keep me in the path of wisdom. Lord in your word, it states that Jesus grew up in favor in the eyes of God and of man. This day I ask for your favor through my teachers.
Spirit of Jesus, give me good memory so that I might be able to understand, remember and apply what I am going to be learning.
Continually bless my teachers for their unending contribution in preparing me for life.
Lord blesses them according to your riches.

Abba Father, every day and especially the month of October we remember and pray for cancer patients all around the world. Lord you have seen their suffering; you have heard their cry for healing and strength.
Help the victims know that they are not alone in their struggle. Lord may your spirit of love continually encourage them to keep the fight and the hope. Help us lord to support and encourage them. Amen

Dear God, we come before you today giving thanks and glorifying your holy name. We thank you for all that you have given us. We thank you for the 175th anniversary of Mother Teresa Ball.
We thank you for her courage and zeal that made the Loreto dream a reality in many parts of the world. Bless the work of her hands and the initiative she took to follow the Venerable Mary Ward’s vision.
Dear Lord, we thank you for using her as a vessel of your will in the setting up of girls’ schools in many parts of the world.
We are infinitely grateful to you for giving her unto us and we pray you may continue to bless her vision of being missionary to the world. Amen.

We pray to the Lord, that He will support us in the dark days and the sunny days.
The days filled with laughter and light, and those of sorrow and fear.
We pray that good will triumph over evil, truth over lies, love over hate, and compassion over hardness of heart.
We pray that we will act, not out of fear, but only out of love, because we are called to a vocation of love.
Loving God, accompany us on our journey.
You have called us each by name.
Sustain us on our pilgrim way.
Inspire us to be the best people we can be.
Open our eyes to see Your face in the face of those we meet along the way.
Open our ears to hear Your voice. Become one with us.
Be our friend and our teacher, as we do our best, knowing You will do the rest.
May You find praise in all we say and do each day.
Give us courage Lord, to sing a new song for You.
A song of justice and peace, a song of love and compassion.
Sing to the Lord, hearts filled with joy, for all that we need, we will find in Him.
All powerful God, pour upon us the bounty of your love that we may protect life and beauty.
Fill us with peace, that we may live as brothers and sisters, sharing our common humanity.
O God of the poor, touch the hearts of those who seek only to gain, at the expense of the poor and the earth.
Help us to encounter You in those we meet, especially the displaced, the poor and those in need.
I light a candle and suddenly
the world around me changes.
I am reminded, yet again,
that one small flame is sometimes
all it takes, to let the darkness know,
that it cannot win.
We do not need material things in order to live on this earth peacefully. As long as we have God in our lives we should be satisfied and grateful.
