Our Favorite Prayers
Francis of Assisi Payer

Lord, make me an instrument of your peace.

Where there is hatred, let me show love.

Where there is injury, pardon.

Where there is doubt, faith.

Where there is despair, hope.

Where there is darkness, light.

Where there is sadness, joy.

O 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 receive.

It is in pardoning that we are pardoned,

and it is in dying that we are born to Eternal Life.


As a Child I Loved You

As a little child,

I loved you like a mother.

Now that I am old,

my love for you has grown.

Receive me in heaven

as one of the blessed,

and I will proclaim

that I have obtained

such a great prize

through your patronage.

Pater Noster (Lord's Prayer)

Our Father in heaven,

hallowed be your name,

your kingdom come,

your will be done,

on earth as in heaven.

Give us today our daily bread.

Forgive our bad actions

as we forgive those who had bad actions against us

because you are love and we must love

Deliver us from evil behaviors and hates

Thank you for all your graces and goodwill

Chaplain: Prayer of a Firefighter’s Spouse

Heavenly Father, I'm asking you to have special care today, to protect my firefighter as he fulfills his duties.

I ask you to guide his thoughts and actions, keep him free from fear,

help him work with added care so we will find him safely home.

Please show me the way to be a strong support when he has had a ‘bad’ day;

an encourager when he needs to know it is worth it. And bless me with your comfort

and strength when my heart grows anxious whenever I hear the sirens in the distance.

I thank you Lord for giving me this firefighter with whom I share my life.

Bless him as he shares the same goal you have – to keep safe from harm those you love,

I pray that as he follows in your ways, you hold him in your care, and remind him that he too is loved.

Serenity Prayer

God, give me grace to accept with serenity
the things that cannot be changed,
Courage to change the things
which should be changed,
and the Wisdom to distinguish
the one from the other.
Living one day at a time,
Enjoying one moment at a time,
Accepting hardship as a pathway to peace,
Taking, as Jesus did,
This sinful world as it is,
Not as I would have it,
Trusting that You will make all things right,
If I surrender to Your will,
So that I may be reasonably happy in this life,
And supremely happy with You forever in the next.

Prière de la Sérénité

Mon Dieu,
Donnez-moi la sérénité
Les choses que je ne puis changer,
Le courage
De changer les choses que je peux,
Et la sagesse
D'en connaître la différence.

Lord's Prayer

The prayer as it occurs in Matthew 6:9–13
Our Father in heaven,
hallowed be your name.
Your kingdom come,
your will be done,
on earth, as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread,
and forgive us our debts,
as we also have forgiven our debtors.
And lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil.

For Those in Special Need:

Let us pray, dear friends,
That God the almighty Father
May heal the sick,
Comfort the dying,
Give safety to travelers,
Free those unjustly deprived of liberty,
And rid the world of falsehood,
Hunger and disease.
Almighty, ever-living God,
You give strength to the weary
And new courage to those who have lost heart.
Hear the prayers of all who call on you in trouble
That they may have the joy of receiving your help in their need.
We ask this through Christ our Lord.

Nicene Creed

We believe in one God,
the Father, the Almighty,
maker of heaven and earth,
of all that is, seen and unseen.
We believe in one Lord, Jesus Christ,
the only Son of God,
eternally begotten of the Father,
God from God, Light from Light,
true God from true God,
begotten, not made,
of one Being with the Father.
Through him all things were made.
For us and for our salvation
he came down from heaven:
by the power of the Holy Spirit
he became incarnate from the Virgin Mary,
and was made man.

For our sake he was crucified under Pontius Pilate;
he suffered death and was buried.
On the third day he rose again
in accordance with the Scriptures;
he ascended into heaven
and is seated at the right hand of the Father.
He will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead,
and his kingdom will have no end.
We believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of life,
who proceeds from the Father and the Son.
With the Father and the Son he is worshiped and glorified.
He has spoken through the Prophets.
We believe in one holy catholic and apostolic Church.
We acknowledge one baptism for the forgiveness of sins.
We look for the resurrection of the dead,
and the life of the world to come.

Prayer of Saint Francis

The first-known publication of the prayer was submitted anonymously to the French publication La Clochette in 1912.

Seigneur, faites de moi un instrument de votre paix.
Là où il y a de la haine, que je mette l'amour.
Là où il y a l'offense, que je mette le pardon.
Là où il y a la discorde, que je mette l'union.
Là où il y a l'erreur, que je mette la vérité.
Là où il y a le doute, que je mette la foi.
Là où il y a le désespoir, que je mette l'espérance.
Là où il y a les ténèbres, que je mette votre lumière.
Là où il y a la tristesse, que je mette la joie.
Ô Maître, que je ne cherche pas tant à être consolé qu'à consoler,
à être compris qu'à comprendre,
à être aimé qu'à aimer,
car c'est en donnant qu'on reçoit,
c'est en s'oubliant qu'on trouve, c'est en pardonnant qu'on est pardonné,
c'est en mourant qu'on ressuscite à l'éternelle vie.
Apostles' Creed
I believe in God the Father Almighty,
Maker of heaven and earth:
And in Jesus Christ his only Son our Lord,
Who was conceived by the Holy Ghost,
Born of the Virgin Mary,
Suffered under Pontius Pilate,
Was crucified, dead, and buried:
He descended into hell;
The third day he rose again from the dead;
He ascended into heaven,
And sitteth on the right hand of God the Father Almighty;
From thence he shall come to judge the quick and the dead.
I believe in the Holy Ghost;
The holy Catholic Church;
The Communion of Saints;
The Forgiveness of sins;
The Resurrection of the body,
And the Life everlasting.

For Unity of Christians Ephesian 4:5

Let us pray
For all our brothers and sisters
Who share our faith in Jesus Christ,
That God may gather and keep together in one church
All those who seek the truth with sincerity.
Almighty and eternal God,
You keep together those you have united.
Look kindly on all who follow Jesus your Son.
We are all consecrated to you by our common baptism.
Make us one in the fullness of faith,
And keep us one in the fellowship of love.
We ask this through Christ our Lord.

Prayer to Saint Michael

Saint Michael the Archangel,

be our protection against the wickedness and snares of the
May God rebuke him, we humbly pray:
and do thou, O Prince of the heavenly host,
by the power of God,
thrust into hell Satan and all the evil spirits

For Those Who Do Not Believe in Christ:

Let us pray
For those who do not believe in Christ,
That the light of the Holy Spirit
May show them the way to salvation.
Almighty and eternal God,
Enable those who do not acknowledge Christ
To find the truth
As they walk before you in sincerity of heart.
Help us to grow in love for one another,
To grasp more fully the mystery of your godhead,
And to become more perfect witnesses of your love
In the sight of men.
We ask this through Christ our Lord.

For Those Who Do Not Believe in God:

Let us pray
For those who do not believe in God,
that they may find Him
By sincerely following all that is right.
Almighty and eternal God,
You created mankind
So that all might long to find you
And have peace when you are found,
Grant that, in spite of the hurtful things
That stand in their way,
They may all recognize in the lives of Christians
The tokens of your love and mercy,
And gladly acknowledge you
As the one true God and Father of us all.
We ask this through Christ our Lord.

For All in Public Office:

Let us pray
For those who serve us in public office,
That God may guide their minds and hearts,
So that all men may live in true peace and freedom.
Almighty and eternal God,
You know the longings of men’s hearts
And you protect their rights.
In your goodness
Watch over those in authority,
So that people everywhere may enjoy
Religious freedom, security, and peace.
We ask those through Christ our Lord.

Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary,  that never was it known that anyone who fled to your
protection, implored your help, or sought your intercession, was left unaided. Inspired with this confidence, I fly to you, O Virgin of virgins, my Mother.
To you I come, before you I stand, sinful and sorrowful.
O Mother of the Word Incarnate,
despise not my petitions,
but in your mercy, hear and answer me.


Souvenez-vous, ô très miséricordieuse Vierge Marie, qu'on n'a jamais entendu dire qu'aucun de ceux qui ont eu recours à votre protection, imploré votre assistance ou
réclamé votre secours, ait été abandonné.
Animé d'une pareille confiance, ô Vierge des vierges, ô ma Mère, je cours vers vous, je viens à vous et, gémissant sous le poids de mes péchés, je me prosterne à vos pieds.
Ô Mère du Verbe ne rejetez pas mes prières, mais écoutez-les favorablement et daignez les exaucer.
Ainsi soit-il.

Mary, Mother of Grace

Mother of grace,
Mother of mercy,
Shield me from the enemy
And receive me at the hour of my death.

gate of heaven, star of the sea,
assist your people who have fallen yet strive to rise again.
To the wonderment of nature you bore your Creator,
yet remained a virgin after as before.
You who received Gabriel's joyful greeting,
have pity on us poor sinners.

Alma Redemptoris Mater

Sainte Mère du Rédempteur
Porte du ciel, toujours ouverte,
étoile de la mer
viens au secours du peuple qui tombe
et qui cherche à se relever.
Tu as enfanté,
ô merveille !
Celui qui t’a créée,
et tu demeures toujours Vierge.
Accueille le salut
de l’ange Gabriel
et prends pitié de nous, pécheurs.


I confess to almighty God,
to the saints, and to all the Saints,
and to thee, brother,
that I have sinned in thought,
in speech, in work,
in the purity of mind and of the body.
Therefore, I beseech you, pray for me."


Je confesse à Dieu tout-puissant,
Je reconnais devant mes frères
que j’ai péché,
en pensée, en parole, par action et par omission.
Oui, j’ai vraiment péché.
C’est pourquoi, je supplie la Vierge Marie,
les anges et tous les saints,
et vous aussi, mes frères,
de prier pour moi le Seigneur notre Dieu

Salve Regina

Salut, Reine, Mère de Miséricorde, Vie, Douceur, et notre espérance, salut.
Vers toi nous élevons nos cris, pauvres enfants d'Ève exilés.
Vers toi nous soupirons, gémissant et pleurant dans cette vallée de larmes.
Tourne donc, ô notre Avocate, tes yeux miséricordieux vers nous.
Et, Jésus, le fruit béni de tes entrailles, montre-le nous après cet exil.
Ô clémente, ô pieuse, ô douce Vierge Marie.

Salve Regina

Hail, holy Queen, Mother of mercy,
our life, our sweetness, and our hope.
To you we cry, the children of Eve;
to you we send up our sighs,
mourning and weeping in this land of exile.
Turn, then, most gracious advocate,
your eyes of mercy toward us;
lead us home at last
and show us the blessed fruit of your womb, Jesus:
O clement, O loving, O sweet Virgin Mary.

Hail Mary

Mary full of grace,
the Lord is with thee.
Blessed art thou amongst women,
and blessed is the fruit of thy womb,
for thou hast borne Christ the Saviour,
the Deliverer of our souls.

Je vous salue Marie

Je vous salue, Marie pleine de grâce ;
Le Seigneur est avec vous.
Vous êtes bénie entre toutes les femmes
Et Jésus, le fruit de vos entrailles, est béni.
Sainte Marie, Mère de Dieu,
Priez pour nous, pauvres pécheurs,
Maintenant, et à l'heure de notre mort.


Be pleased, O God, we pray,
to bless, acknowledge,
and approve this offering in every respect;
make it spiritual and acceptable,
so that it may become for us
the Body and Blood of your most beloved Son,
our Lord Jesus Christ.
Gloria Patri
Glory be to the Father, and to the Son :
and to the Holy Ghost;
As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be :
world without end. Amen.
Guardian angel
Angel of God, my guardian dear
to whom God's love commits me here.
Ever this day/night be at my side
to light, to guard, to rule and guide.


My soul doth magnify the Lord.
And my spirit hath rejoiced in God my Saviour.
Because he hath regarded the humility of his handmaid;
for behold from henceforth all generations shall call me blessed.
Because he that is mighty,
hath done great things to me;
and holy is his name.
And his mercy is from generation unto generations,
to them that fear him.
He hath shewed might in his arm:
he hath scattered the proud in the conceit of their heart.
He hath put down the mighty from their seat,
and hath exalted the humble.
He hath filled the hungry with good things;
and the rich he hath sent empty away.
He hath received Israel his servant,
being mindful of his mercy:
As he spoke to our fathers,
to Abraham and to his seed for ever.
