Below are three more prayers for you on this Easter Friday. Feel free to print them out or use them however you want.
The Prayer for Peace has been drumming through my head all week, so I made sure to include it this week.
We’ve been blessed with much-needed rain all week, and I see a tiny sliver of sky between the clouds this morning! I hope you have a blessed weekend.
Love & prayers,
O Blessed Saint Joseph, tender-hearted father, faithful guardian of Jesus, chaste spouse of the Mother of God, I pray and beseech thee, to offer to God the Father, His divine Son, bathed in blood on the cross for sinners, and through the thrice holy Name of Jesus obtain for us from the eternal Father the favor we implore…
Appease the Divine anger so justly inflamed by our crimes; beg of Jesus mercy for Thy children. Amid the splendors of eternity, forget not the sorrows of those who suffer, those who pray, those who weep; stay the almighty arm which smites us, that by thy prayers and those of your most holy Spouse the Heart of Jesus may be moved to pity and to pardon. Amen.
Saint Joseph, pray for us.
In Loving Memory
Almighty God, through the death of your Son on the cross, You have overcome death for us. Through His burial and resurrection from the dead, You have made the grave a holy place and restored us to eternal life. We pray for those who died believing in Jesus and are buried with Him in the hope of rising again. God of the living and the dead, may those who faithfully believed in You on earth praise You forever in the joy of heaven. We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.
Prayer for Peace
Lord, make me an instrument of Your peace.
Where there is hatred, let me sow love.
Where there is doubt, faith,
Where there is injury, pardon,
Where there is despair, hope,
Where there is darkness, light,
and where there is sadness, joy.
Divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled, as to console;
To be understood as to understand;
To be loved as to love;
For it is in giving that we are recieve
It is in pardoning that we are pardoned;
And it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.
