            Jesus, Teach Me to Pray

O Jesus, Splendor of the Father, pray for me, in me, and
with me.
O Jesus, Brightness of Eternal Light, pray for me as my
Priest, my Head, and my God.
Teach me to convert my heart,
to seek reconciliation,
to love my enemies,
to pray for my persecutors,
to be attentive,
to be pure,
And to seek the kingdom.
O Jesus, Teacher of Teachers, teach me to struggle, to be
patient, and to persevere.
Lead me, O Lord, to pray in faith,
to seek and knock,
for You are the door and the way.
O Jesus, Breastplate of Hope, help me to recognize that all
things are possible to those who believe.
Embody in me a heart to do Your will.
O Jesus, Joy of Angels, teach me to pray.



                 Internal Changes
In You, O Lord, my external situation may not change, but
my internal being shall;
If only I can abandon my fears and trust, You will console
me, sustain me, and grant me the gift of perseverance.
If only I can cast my cares upon You, O Lord, upon Your
providence, upon Your divine plan for me, then all things
will be just fine.
May I realize that all, absolutely all, is in Your hands!
Bless me with trust!



              Healing of Memories

O Lord, release my memories.
Open the flood gates.
Bless me with the grace to work through my rational and
irrational feelings.
Eliminate my evasiveness, my facades and make-believe
Get me out of my negative emotional patterns and
recurring cycles of destruction.
O Great Physician, heal the wounds that torment me, the
abuse, the losses, the overwhelming mental and
emotional pains.
Heal what time cannot heal.
Heal the sensitive spots, emotions, and traumas.
Soothe my damaged body, soul, and spirit.
Console me in Your healing arms.
