Comforting Women With Breast Cancer

pexels-photo-579474.jpeg

Father, for the strength you have given me, I thank you. For the health you have blessed me with, I thank you. For the women who are going through breast cancer and their families, I ask you to strengthen and to heal as you see fit. Lord, we know you want us to be in good health and to prosper. Lord, use us to do the work you have for us to do. For we know time is getting short on this earth. Lord, be with every woman who is sick and encourage them as only you can. I know how faithful you are. You have shown yourself to be everything you say you are in your Holy Word. I praise you, for you made this body, and you can heal this body. In Jesus’ Name I pray.

Novena to Saint Jude

Saint Jude, glorious apostle, faithful servant and friend of Jesus, the name of the traitor has caused you to be forgotten by many. But the Church honors and invokes you universally as the patron of difficult and desperate cases. Pray for me, who am so miserable. Make use, I implore you, of that particular privilege accorded to you to bring visible and speedy help where help was almost despaired of. Come to my assistance in this great need that I may receive the consolation and help of heaven in all my necessities, tribulations, and sufferings, particularly — (here make your request) — and that I may bless God with you and all the elect throughout all eternity.

I promise you, O blessed Saint Jude, to be ever mindful of this great favor,

and I will never cease to honor you as my special and powerful patron

and do all in my power to encourage devotion to you. Amen.

Saint Jude, pray for us and for all who honor you and invoke your aid.

May We All Be Safe From Sorrow

May all beings have happiness and the causes of happiness;
May all be free from sorrow and the causes of sorrow;
May all never be separated from the sacred happiness which is sorrowless;
And may all live in equanimity, without too much attachment and too much aversion,
And live believing in the equality of all that lives.

May We Always Be Ready for the Long Journey

O, our Father the Sky, hear us
and make us strong.
O, our Mother the Earth, hear us
and give us support.
O Spirit of the East,
send us your Wisdom.
O Spirit of the South,
may we tread your path.
O Spirit of the West,
may we always be ready for the long journey.
O Spirit of the North, purify us
with your cleansing winds.

Give Us This Day

  Which art in heaven,
Hallowed be
Your holy name.
Thy Kingdom come,
Just let your will be done
On earth,
As it is in heaven.
Give us this day
Our daily bread.
Forgive us our debts,
As we forgive our debtors.
And lead us not
Into all temptation,
But deliver us He said,
I am Safe
Safe
I am Safe
Safe

Safe
Safe
Safe
Safe
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
I’m safe.

Ruth Baxter, with passage
