Monthly Parish Prayer Diary

Monthly Prayer Diary for February

Friday 9th

Who can overcome the world? Only the man who believes that Jesus is the Son of God.

Saturday 10th

My dear people, let us love one another, since love comes from God, and everyone who loves is begotten by God and knows God.

Sunday 11th

God is light, there is no darkness in him at all. If we say we are in union with God, while we are living in darkness, we are lying because we are not living the truth. But if we live our lives in the light as he is in the light, we are in union with one another.

Monday 12th

So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you. I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.

Tuesday 13th

Dear Lord, I willingly offer You all that I am to serve you, as and where you choose.

Wednesday 14th

Lord, I know there is darkness 
within me and around me. 
Bless these days with your Word. 
Let your Light shine in the darkness. 
Help me long for that Light 
until we celebrate it at the Vigil six weeks from now.
