A Prayer

James 5-13/”If any of you is in trouble let him pray. If anyone is flourishing let him sing praises to God.”

*God, provide us with the needed strength to overcome our mortal weaknesses and to hold on to hope, no matter how badly or strongly we are exposed to temptation.

* God, help us to keep ailments of doubt and suspicion far away from our hearts, minds and souls.

*God, bless us and absolve our sins.

*God, endow us with faith, patience and endurance.

*God, enlighten our minds and consciences with holiness and wisdom.

*God, open our eyes, cleanse our heart and make us feel your warmth and affection.

* God, we are weak, sinful, guilty, at fault and have committed too many wrongdoings.

*God, we ask You for leniency, forgiveness and we pledge to observe all the required penances and atonement.

*God, protect us from the scourges of selfishness, greed, jealousy, hatred, grudges and all other temtations of mortal earthly riches.

*God, guard us from evil thoughts and intentions.

*God, we are kneeling at your feet, asking for mercy and forgiveness.

*God we are putting our lives, fate in your custody and between your blessed hands.

*God, we believe in your great mercy, judgment and wisdom.

God, we are definite by the end that you will not leave us preys to evil temptations.

*God help us to overcome divisions, separations, fear, doubts and suspicions.

*God, lead our steps and enlighten our hearts with your warmth. Open our eyes to see the way out of the temptations that we face.

*God, we know You cannot be tempted by evil and that you tempt no one, but You allow temptation to occur. Help us to endure all trials of temptations.

*God,  we are tired, weak, exhausted, vulnerable and no longer able to bear the torment of loneliness, deprivation, depression, nightmares and the sorrow of estrangement and feuding.

*God: You said: “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest”.

God, We are kneeling at your feet with our burdens, have mercy on us.
