Prayer for Protection against Evil

Need Protection? This is what you need. Because evil is everywhere, comes in all forms, working on your downfall, conniving for your defeat.

 

Prayer For Protection Against Evil

Heavenly Father You have promised that when we dwell in the secret place of the most High and shelter under the shadow of Your wings you will guard and guide us, protect us and keep us – for You are our refuge and our fortress and You alone are the one in Whom we place our trust.

Thank You Lord that no matter where I go Your hand leads me, and Your right arm upholds me.. for You are before me and behind me, You are above me and below me You are at my right hand and also at my left. And You are within me.. indwelling in my heart by the power of Your Holy Spirit, Who is my ever present Help in time of trouble.

Father I pray that You would protect me and my family from all the evils that are lurking nearby and from those that would seek to harm us. Uphold us and keep us safe from all the evils that encircle our lives. Put Your hedge of protection and safety around us we pray, and place a guard at our doors and protects us from all that pass by our gate. And Father, keep our hearts from fear but rather fill us to overflowing with Your perfect peace that passes all understanding. Thank You that You are indeed our refuge and strength. You are that ever present Help in time of trouble – therefore in Your strength we will not fear, though the earth be removed, and though the mountains be carried into the middle of the sea. – for You are with us wherever we go. Thank You in Jesus name,

Amen.

Praise & Worship Songs with Lyrics

Sharing my favorite praise and worship songs which I choose to sing often in our weekly mass. 

THE POWER OF YOUR LOVE
Lord, I come to you
Let my heart be changed, renewed
Flowing from the grace
That i’ve found in you
Lord, I’ve come to know
The weaknesses I see in me
Will be stripped away
By the power of your love.

(Chorus) Hold me close
Let your love surround me
Bring me near
Draw me to your side
And as I wait
I’ll rise up like the eagle
And I will soar with you
Your spirit leads me on
In the power of your love.

Lord unveil my eyes
Let me see you face to face
The knowledge of your love
As you live in me
Lord, renew my mind
As your will unfolds in my life
Living everyday in the power of your love.
(chorus)

CHANGE MY HEART OH GOD
Change my heart oh God
Make it ever true
Change of my heart oh God
May I be like you.

Change my heart oh God
Make it ever true
Change of my heart oh God
May I be like you.

You are the potter
I am the clay
Mold me and make me
This is what I pray.

Change my heart oh God
Make it ever true
Change of my heart oh God
May I be like you.

I WILL SING FOREVER
I will sing forever of your love, O lord.
I will celebrate the wonder of your name
For the word that you speak is the song of forgiveness
And a song of gentle mercy and of peace.
Let us wake at the morning and be filled with your love
And sing songs of praise all our days
For your love is as high as the heavens above us
And your faithfulness as certain as the dawn.
I will sing forever of your love, O lord.
I will celebrate the wonder of your name
For the word that you speak is the song of forgiveness
And a song of gentle mercy and of peace.
I will sing forever of Your love, O lord
For you are my refuge and my strength
You fill the world with your life-giving spirit
That speaks your word
Your word of mercy and of peace.
And I will sing forever of your love, O Lord…

Take and Receive

Take and receive, O Lord, my liberty
Take all my will, my mind, and memory.
All things I hold and all I own are thine
Thine was the gift to thee I all resign.

To thou direct and govern all and sway
Do what Thou wilt, command, and I obey
Only Thy grace Thy love on me bestow
These make me rich, all else will I forego..

Prayer when overwhelmed

Sharing this prayer for everyone who feels overwhelmed, when problems pile up and worries seem endless.

Prayer when you feel overwhelmed.

…………………………………………………………………

Oh God Almighty Father,

I seek You as I feel completely  overwhelmed.

I do not have the time nor the energy

to sustain myself or my life.

There’s just too much…

Please help me Lord.

Show me your hand, in control of all things.

Let me find rest in You.

Help me to trust You for anything, for everything.

For You alone are sovereign.

You own time itself, my only refuge, my hope.

So, I stop at this moment,

and seek You.

I can feel the breeze of Your merciful love,

Helping me carry my cross & survive each day.

I rise up strong again,

in Christ,

and face the world,

my path straight and firm.

With faith in Your Son,

whose great name I pray,

Amen.

Prayer before sleep

Today is one of the most exhausting days of my life. All I do, I offer them to God. He gives me strength to fulfill my duties, my obligations.

I’m sharing this beautiful prayer before sleep.
Prayer before sleep.

Dear God, as I lay me down to sleep, relax the tension of my body. 

Calm the restlessness of my mind; still the thoughts which worry and perplex me. 

Help me to rest myself and all my problems in your strong & loving arms.

Let your Spirit speak to my mind and heart while I’m asleep, so that when I wake in the morning, I may find that I have received in the nighttime, light for my way, strength for my tasks, peace for my worries, forgiveness for my sins. 

Grant me sleep tonight and tomorrow power to live. 

Amen 🙏🏼

Ave Maria de Lourdes France

On our fifth visit to Lourdes France, we were able to participate in the nightly rosary vigil. It starts at 9 pm and lasts for about an hour. Same feeling of peace and hope enveloped me as we sang to the hymns and recitation of the rosary. Chanted with various languages I may not know but still familiar and heartfelt. The procession is more than a ceremony that for devotees like us – is a time of prayer and peace.

I’d like to share the hymn – “Ave Maria de Lourdes” in French. As seen on a short clip I recorded below.

Ave, Ave, Ave Maria!
Ave, Ave, Ave Maria!

O Vierge Marie, le peuple Chrétien,
à Lourdes vous prie, chez vous il renvient.

Le fond de la roche s’éclaire à l’instant:
la dame s’approche, fait signe à l’enfant.

“Venez, je vous prie, ici, quinze fois,
avec vos amies entendre ma voix.”

Avec insistance la dame,
trois fois, a dit: “pénitence”
Chrétien, c’est pour toi!

“A cette fontaine venez et buvez;
dans l’eau pure et sainte
allez vous laver.”

“Je veux qu’ici même,
au pied de ces monts,
le peuple que j’aime
vienne en procession.”

 

 

much love,

Intercessory Prayer to Our Lady of Fatima

O Most Holy Virgin Mary, Queen of the most holy Rosary,

you were pleased to appear to the children of Fatima and reveal a glorious message.

We implore you, inspire in our hearts a fervent love for the recitation of the Rosary.

Lead me Lord (lyrics)

my art tribute

Lead me Lord

Lead me Lord, lead me by the hand
and let me face the rising sun.
Comfort me through all the pain
that life may bring. 
There’s no other hope that I can lean upon.
Lead me Lord, lead me all my life.
Walk by me, 
walk by me across the lonely road that I may face
take my arms and let your hand
show me the way.
Show the way to live inside your heart,
all my days, all my life.
(chorus)
You are my light, 
you’re the lamp upon my feet.
All the time my Lord, I need You there.
You are my life, I cannot live alone.
Let me stay by guiding your life.
All through my life,
lead me Lord…
Lead me Lord, even though at times 
I’d rather go alone my way
help me take the right direction, take your road.
Lead me Lord and never leave my side
All my days,
all my life.
