These are some formulary prayers you may use.

Morning Offering

Almighty God, I offer you this day as a sacrifice of adoration, thanksgiving, and praise. Bless and approve this offering, sanctify it and make it Holy so that it becomes for you a living sacrifice Holy and acceptable to you, O LORD, my Strength and my Redeemer; an offering made in Spirit and in Truth. I offer you this day because you are my God and I am your servant and this is my reasonable service of worship. I offer you this day because you are my Creator and I am your creation, and all creation rightly gives you thanks and praise. I offer you this day because I love you, and I love you because you first loved me. Thank you for this day, this life, this love and help me to share it with whomsoever or whatsoever your will allows. My gift to you today is the love you gave me which I then multiplied in the love I give to others, the lovely and lovable people you gave to me to love. My love for them and my love for you is my gift to you. I offer you this prayer in Jesus’ name.

Good morning, LORD, and thank You for this day! As we go out to help the World together, be beside me all the way. Teach me and help me to be just and merciful, to live righteously, and to walk humbly before You wherever Your Spirit guides me. Let the constant Hope I have in You be the Light that drives away the darkness and draws me and everyone I meet to Your perfect Integrity, endless Mercy, and eternal Salvation, through Christ our Lord. AMEN

Daily Offering
O my Jesus, through the Immaculate Heart of Mary, I offer You this day and all of my thoughts, words, and deeds, my works, my prayers, my joys, my sorrows, my victories and my defeats, my fears and anxieties, my heart’s desires, everything I do and everything I fail to do, all that I am, all that I have, and all that I can become I offer to You. O my Jesus, through the Immaculate Heart of Mary, I offer You this day and all of my thoughts, words, and deeds, my works, my prayers, my joys, my sorrows, my victories and my defeats, my fears and anxieties, my heart’s desires, everything I do and everything I fail to do, all that I am, all that I have, and all that I can become I offer to You.

Prayer for Every Living Soul
Jesus, lover of mankind, You came to Earth centuries ago to be the way, the truth, and the life, and yet countless men and women, boys and girls, do not know You, do not love You as well as they could, and many are indifferent or opposed to You. In this state of being, Lord, they might not consciously offer You their lives today. There are millions more, Lord, who do know You, do love You, but do not know about, do not care about, or have forgotten about making a daily offering, so Lord, on behalf of all of these souls I offer You the best of their day today so that You might be loved and honored in some way by them, too. Lord Jesus Christ, be merciful to them all as miserable sinners, forgive them their sins, and bring them to everlasting life. Amen.

For our Guardian Angels
Angel of God, my guardian dear
To whom God’s love commits me here
Both day and night be at my side
To light and rule, to guard and guide.

Reminder of Salvation
Jesus, meek and humble of heart, make my heart like unto Your Heart. O my Jesus, forgive me my sins. Save me from the fires of Hell. Lead all souls to Heaven, and help especially those souls, like mine, who are most in need of Your mercy. Lord Jesus Christ, be merciful to me, a sinner; forgive me my sins and lead me to everlasting life. AMEN.

Pray to Seek God’s Will
Almighty Triune God – Father, Son, and Holy Spirit – I love You. I worship You. I adore You. I praise You. I glorify Your name. Enlighten, guide, strengthen, and console me. Teach me Your will and empower and inspire me to fulfill it completely, for it is my heart’s desire to serve You well in all that You ask of me and everything that You allow to happen to me. Only make Your will known, and grant me the graces to faithfully follow You to the place You have prepared for me. I offer You this prayer in the name of Jesus, The Christ our Lord who lives and reigns with God, The Father Almighty, in the unity of The Holy Spirit, The LORD, the Giver of Life. AMEN. (Based on Cardinal Mercier’s Prayer To The Holy Spirit)

Jesus said: “This is how you are to pray: 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; and forgive us our sins, as we forgive those who sin against us; and do not subject us to the final test, but deliver us from the evil one.”

Any time you see or hear an ambulance, police cruiser, fire truck, rescue vehicle or any emergency responder or pass a hospital or police or fire station:

Almighty God, please go with those emergency service providers and grant them safety, wisdom, courage, and strength so they can render assistance in a way that gives glory and honor to You and grant that the responses of those who require that assistance will also glorify You. I ask You this in Jesus’ name and for Your eternal glory. AMEN.


With both hands on the shoulders of the other person, you say “_____________, I claim your life in the name of Jesus.” Then, both hands are placed on top of the person’s head, and say, “From this day forward may no person, place, thing, idea, or spirit ever hinder or harm the bond in His love that exists between us now; and so may Almighty God bless you, and I bless you [S.O.T.C. (+)] in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.

_________________, from now on, you are a [brother/sister // son/daughter // etc.) to me as we are children of the Father, and heirs with the Son. Peace be with you. Amen”

Mary, Mother of the Unborn

Mary, Mother of the Unborn

O Blessed little Infant Jesus, in honor of thy holy birth and through thy holy Mother, I pray that the innocents who will this day be murdered may find refuge and eternal glory before the throne of thy Heavenly Father. Jesus, Mary, and Joseph, I love You very much and I beg You to save the lives and souls of the unborn children I have placed under your spiritual protection as well as the lives and souls of the spiritual brothers and sisters, sons and daughters with whom God has graced my life. Mary, mother of all of God’s children, bless and protect, guide and direct all of those whom God has given to me to love. And grant that through the prayers and lawful actions of those of us who are opposed to abortion, the parents who are considering murdering their children today will decide instead to share with them the gift of life. For those parents who have already murdered their children, grant them the graces of contrition and repentance so they will be led to reconciliation. For those who promote or perform abortions, grant them knowledge, understanding, and wisdom so they will perceive and comprehend that what they are doing is evil and horribly, tragically wrong. Amen.

Daily Covering Prayer

Dear Heavenly Father, I pray this prayer in the power of the Holy Spirit. In the name of Jesus Christ, I bind, rebuke and bring to no effect; all division, discord, disunity, strife, wrath, murder, criticism, condemnation, pride, envy, jealously, gossip, slander, evil speaking, complaining, lying, false teaching, false gifts, false manifestations, lying signs and wonders, poverty, fear of lack, fear of spirits, deceiving spirits, religious spirits, hindering spirits, retaliatory spirits, occult spirits, witchcraft spirits (including Jezebel, Delilah, and Apollyon the Destroyer), spirits of antichrist and all familiar and territorial spirits.

I bind all curses that have been spoken against me. I bless those who curse me, and pray blessings on those who despitefully use me. I bind all spoken judgments made against me, and judgments I have made against others. I bind the power of negative words from others, and I bind and render useless all prayers not inspired by the Holy Spirit; whether psychic, soul force, witchcraft, or counterfeit tongues that have been prayed against me.

I am God’s child. I resist the devil. No weapon formed against me shall prosper. I put on the whole armor of God. I take authority over this day, in Jesus name. Let it be prosperous for me, and let me walk in your love, Lord.

The Holy Spirit leads and guides me today and fills me with all needed gifting and graces. I discern between the righteous and the wicked. I take authority over Satan and all his demons, and those people who are influenced by them. I declare Satan is under my feet and shall remain there all day.

I am the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus. I am God’s property. Satan, you are bound from my family, my mind, my body, my home, and my finances. I confess that I am healed and whole. I flourish, am long lived, stable, durable, incorruptible, fruitful, virtuous, full of peace, patience and love. Whatsoever I set my hands to do shall prosper for God supplies all my needs. I have all authority over Satan, all demons, and beasts of the field.

God, I pray for the ministry You have for me. Anoint me God for all you have called me to do for You. I call forth divine appointments, open doors of opportunity; God ordained encounters and ministry positions.

I claim a hedge of protection, by the Precious Blood of Jesus, around myself, spouse and children (names), throughout this day and night. I ask You God, in the name of Jesus, to dispatch angels to surround me, my spouse, my children, godchildren, grandchildren and great-grandchildren, today and everyday, and to put them throughout my house and around our cars, souls and bodies. I call on Your holy angels to protect my house from any intrusion and to protect me and my family from any harmful demonic or other physical or mental attacks. I ask all of this in the name of Jesus.

“God indeed is my savior; I am confident and unafraid. My strength and my courage is the Lord, and He has been my Savior” (Isaiah 12:2 NAB). Amen. Alleluia. Amen

One Response to Standard Prayers

  1. chick says:

    “If today you hear is voice…” Jesus is inviting you to share his Joy. If you have not accepted Christ as your personal savior, pray this short prayer from your heart and Jesus will answer it. If you already know the Lord and have found peace and joy in his presence, pray this prayer to recommit and reconsecrate your life to him.

    Jesus, I realize now that you are God’s only begotten son. I know you chose to die in my place for the forgiveness of my sins. Thank you for loving me so much. I want to love you that much, too, and I claim you as my personal Savior. I give you my heart, my life, my soul, my all. I ask you to be in my life forever. Bless me with your Presence, and send your Holy Spirit to pray with and for me so my faith in you becomes permanent and real. I accept your love, your forgiveness, and your Salvation. AMEN

    Remember, saying this prayer or any other prayer will not save you. Only believing in Jesus Christ, His finished work on the cross for you, and his resurrection into Glory can save you from sin.
