1. HOLY FATHER.

Holy Father, receive the works, the sufferings and the joys of all the people, through the sacrifice of your Son, Jesus Christ Our Lord. Through the gift of your holy Spirit may we be faithful witnesses of your Love this day.
Together with Our Lady, in the Church, we pray that the world may welcome your Light.
Amen.


2. TEACH US LORD.

Teach us, Lord, to choose you every day, to repeat your Yes in each of our acts. Give us to follow you without fear and to love you above all things. Make us brothers, you who gathered us. Make of us witnesses, in front of all, of what we have seen and heard, of what we believe and live, so that every person with us recognises in You the only Lord.
Amen.


3. HOLY FATHER, HERE IS MY LIFE

Holy Father, here is my life, so that you make of it Jesus Christ’s life. But you will not prevent that, everywhere where you send me, the Spirit in me cries out towards you, calling your love on  people, my brothers and sisters, who do not know that you are Father.
Father, here is my life, but give me my brothers and sisters that I may return them to you. Holy Father, here is my life, so that you make of it Jesus Christ’s life.


4. LORD, YOU OFFER ME A NEW DAY

Lord, you offer me a new day. May this day be good for me and for the others; that I may fill it with love, Yours, Lord, and that of all people; that I may put in it willingness, sweetness and forgiveness of offences; that I may put in it the oversight of me and the concern of others; that I may put in it prayer, faith and perseverance; that I may keep nothing of it for myself, except the joy and the richness of having given it.


5. MY FATHER I ABANDON MYSELF TO YOU.

Father,
I abandon myself into your hands;
do with me what you will.
Whatever you may do, I thank you:
I am ready for all, I accept all.

Let only your will be done in me,
and in all your creatures –
I wish no more than this, O Lord.

Into your hands I commend my soul:
I offer it to you with all the love of my heart,
for I love you, Lord, and so need to give myself,
to surrender myself into your hands without reserve,
and with boundless confidence,
for you are my Father.


6. HERE IS LORD.

Here is, Lord, the offering of this day that we present to you, we, your servants, with your whole family. Accept it with graciousness.
Grant us peace, in the days of our life. Deign to protect us from sin and to count us among your chosen ones, forever and ever.
Amen.


7. TAKE LORD

Take, Lord, and receive all my liberty,
my memory, my understanding,
and my entire will,
All I have and call my own.

You have given all to me.
To you, Lord, I return it.

Everything is yours; do with it what you will.
Give me only your love and your grace,
that is enough for me.


8. TO WEAVE LINKS AS JESUS DID

Lord Jesus, on this day, we offer you our whole life.
May fraternal love reign between us all who form community.
May each one be happy of the joy of others and suffer from their sorrows.
May  all of us practise mutual help to go to God and to realise His work every day.
May there never be between us either quarrels, or rivalries, either secret jealousies, or nasty words.

Take away from us, Lord, all that hurts, all that divides, all that harms charity.

Grant, Lord, that today and always, we may try to help each other.

May we spend this day with gentleness, patience, humility and loyalty in our commitments.
According to prayers by Jean- Marie de La Mennais


9. WITH OPEN HANDS

With hands open before You, O Lord,
To offer You the world
With hands open before You, O Lord,
Our joy is deep


10. TAKE MY LIFE O LORD

Take my life, O lord, take my life
May my life be prayer.
Take my life, O lord, take my life
May my life resemble your life.

Take my hands
