Thank you for this week of trying to pray more. I know I've failed in many aspects, but I offer you my efforts and my deepest desire for more communion with you. I know that this is what you desire most.
Please help me to continue to grow closer to you as I learn to pray better, in all of my circumstances. Help me to use the time better when I am at Mass. Help me to use those moments when I have a little extra time on my hands. Help me to learn to pray while working when possible. And finally, help me to always turn to you in prayer when I'm anxious, sad, hurting, in need, and even in anger.
Mary, my mother, with your help, I know that I can do all of these things better when I entrust all my efforts to you. Keep me under your mantle and guide me gently in prayer.
Bless the efforts of Heart Ridge Ministry. Help them to pursue their mission to bring people closer to each other and closer to Christ.
