Good morning, and welcome to our Catholic morning prayer. Today, we gather in the presence of God to begin our day with gratitude and seek His guidance and blessings.
In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
Heavenly Father, as we begin this new day, we offer ourselves to You. Fill our hearts with Your love, and grant us the grace to live this day in accordance with Your will. Bless us with Your presence and guide us in all that we do. We entrust this day to Your loving care. Through Christ our Lord. Amen.
Before we delve into our morning prayer, let us take a moment to reflect on the gift of a new day. Each morning brings new opportunities, a fresh start, and the chance to grow closer to God. Let us open our hearts to His word and listen attentively to what He has to share with us today.
Today, our Scripture reading comes from Psalm 5:3: 'In the morning, Lord, you hear my voice; in the morning, I lay my requests before you and wait expectantly.
Let us now enter into a time of prayer, offering our intentions, concerns, and desires to our loving Father. Find a comfortable position, close your eyes, and take a deep breath, allowing the peace of God to fill your soul.
