For each new morning with its light,
For rest and shelter of the night,
For health and food,
For love and friends,
For everything Thy goodness sends.

To him be the glory in the church and in Christ Jesus to all generations for ever and ever. So be it”.

Act of Charity
O my God, I love Thee above all things, with my whole heart and soul, because Thou art all-good and worthy of all love. I love my neighbor as myself for the love of Thee. I forgive all who have injured me, and ask pardon of all whom I have injured.
Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit, as it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
A prayer request to God

Give me an answer, O Lord, give me an answer, so that this people may see that you are God, and that you have made their hearts come back again”.
