Jesus, we often fail to ask your help in prayer, In time of trouble we forget to turn to you; we try every human remedy first and remember you only as a last refuge.
For losing faith in your power and love Lord forgive us.
For rebelling against you and even blaming you when things go wrong Christ forgive us.
We pray to you now; when we are bereaved or depressed Lord come to our aid.
When our faith is weak and hope is gone Christ come to our aid.
When faced with problems and tempted to despair Lord come to our aid.
When worries about the past and fears for the future disturb us, Christ come to our aid.
When illness or failure or misunderstanding depress us Lord come to our aid.
Lord give us always a peaceful and gentle spirit.
Without peace we cannot work or pray or be kind to others. In every storm in life may you raise your hand above us and give us calm.
I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me (say 10 times).
Holy Spirit of God bless us and unite us in peace and love.
Holy Mary Mother of Perpetual Help pray for us now and always.
