Prayer E1

23rd Psalm (Catholic)
The Lord is my shepherd! I shall not want.
In verdant pastures he gives me repose;
Beside restful waters he leads me;
he refreshes my soul.
He guides me in right paths for his name’s sake.
Even though I walk in the dark valley I fear no evil;
for you are at my side. With your rod and your staff
that give me courage. You spread the table before me
in the sight of my foes; You anoint my head with oil;
my cup overflows. Only goodness and kindness
follow me all the days of my life;
And I shall dwell in the house
of the Lord for years to come.

Prayer E2

A Farewell Prayer
“Thank you Lord for seeing how weary I am,
and letting me rest. The pain is gone,
the peace is beautiful. Your love surrounds me.
I have fought the good fight
and somehow now at this stage,
no matter what the outcome,
I feel I have won.”
– My Wish –
‘For everything there is a season.’
“I want my family to move on with
their lives, and realize
everything is for a reason.
Have no regrets.
Everybody did everything they could.
I love you all and will still be with you.”

Prayer E3

Act of Contrition
O my God, I am heartily sorry
for having offended Thee,
and I detest all my sins
because I dread the loss of Heaven
and the pains of hell, but most of all
because they offend Thee, my God,
Who art all-good
and deserving of all my love.
I firmly resolve, with the help
of Thy grace, to confess my sins,
to do penance and to amend my life.
Amen.

Prayer E4

Crossing the Bar
Sunset and evening star,
and one clear call for me:
And may there be no
moaning of the bar,
when I put out to sea.
For thou’ from out our borne
of Time and Place,
the flood may bear me far.
I hope to see my Pilot face to face,
when I have crossed the bar.
- Tennyson

Prayer E5

Hail Mary
Hail Mary, full of grace,

Blessed art thou

now and at the hour of our death.
Amen.

Prayer E6

Irish Blessing
May the road rise to meet you.
May the wind be always
at your back.
May the sun shine warm
upon your face.
May the rains fall soft
upon your fields.
And until we meet again…
May God hold you
in the hollow of His hand.

Prayer E7

Memorare
Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary,
that never was it known that anyone
who fled to thy protection,
implored thy help, and sought thy intercession,
was left unaided. Inspired with this confidence,
I fly unto thee, O Virgin of virgins, my Mother.
To thee do I come, before thee I stand,
sinful and sorrowful. O Mother of the Word Incarnate,
despise not my petitions, but in thy mercy,
hear and answer me. Amen.
Jesus, Mary, Joseph
My Jesus, mercy
O Sacred Heart of Jesus,
I place my trust in Thee.

Be not severe in Thy judgment
but let some drops of Thy Precious Blood
fall upon the devouring flames, and do Thou,
O merciful Savior send Thy angels
to conduct Thy departed servant
to a place of refreshment, light and peace. Amen.

of Saint John Paul II

O Blessed Trinity, we thank you for

Jesus the Good Shepherd. He has shown us

Grant, good Jesus, that I may
live in You and for You.
Protect me in the midst of danger,
comfort me in my afflictions.
Give me health of body,
assistance in my needs,
Your blessing on all that I do,
and the grace of a holy death. Amen.

Prayer E13

Rose of the Cross
Rose of the Cross, thou Mystic Flower,
I lift my heart to thee,
In every melancholy hour,
O Mary, remember me.
Let me stand where thou hast stood,
Beside the crimson tree;
And by the Water and the Blood,
O Mary, remember me.
There let me wash my sinful soul,
And be from sin set free,
Drawn by thy love, by grace made whole,
O Mary, remember me.
“We have loved her dearly during life,
let us not abandon her until we have
conducted her by our prayers
into the house of the Lord.”
– St. Ambrose

Prayer E14

St. Anthony
O Holy St. Anthony, gentlest of Saints,
your love for God and Charity for His creatures,
made you worthy, when on earth,
to possess miraculous powers.
Miracles waited on your word,
which you were ever ready to speak for those
in trouble or anxiety. Encouraged by this thought,
I implore of you to obtain for me (request).
The answer to my prayer may require a miracle,
even so, you are the Saint of Miracles.
O gentle and loving St. Anthony,
whose heart was ever full of human sympathy,
whisper my petition into the ears of the
Sweet Infant Jesus, who loved to be
folded in your arms;
of my heart will ever be yours.

Prayer E15

St. Augustine
Breath in me O Holy Spirit,
that my thoughts may all be holy;
Act in me O Holy Spirit, that my work,
too, may be holy; Draw my heart O Holy Spirit,
that I love but what is holy;
Strengthen me O Holy Spirit,
to defend all that is holy;
Guard me, then, O Holy Spirit,
that I always may be holy. Amen.

Prayer E16

St. Francis
Lord, make me an instrument of Your peace.
Where there is hatred, let me sow love;
where there is injury,
pardon; where there is doubt,
faith; where there is despair, hope;
where there is darkness, light;
and where there is sadness, joy.
O Divine Master, grant that I may not
so much seek to be consoled as to console;
to be understood as to understand;
to be loved, as to love;
for it is in giving that we receive;
it is in pardoning that we are pardoned;
and it is in dying
that we are born to eternal life.

Prayer E17

St. Joseph
Oh, St. Joseph, whose protection is so great,
so strong, so prompt before the throne of God,
I place in you all my interest and desires.
Oh, St. Joseph, do assist me
by your powerful intercession,
and obtain for me from your Divine Son
all spiritual blessings,
through Jesus Christ, our Lord.
So that, having engaged here
below your heavenly power,
I may offer my thanksgiving and homage
to the most Loving of Fathers.
Oh, St. Joseph, I never weary contemplating you,
with Jesus asleep in your arms; I dare not approach
while He reposes near your heart.
Press him in my name and kiss
His fine head for me and ask Him to return
the kiss when I draw my dying breath.
St. Joseph, Patron of departed souls – Pray for me.

Prayer E18

St. Jude
MOST holy apostle St. Jude,
faithful servant and friend of Jesus,
the name of the traitor
who delivered thy beloved Master
into the hands of His enemies
has caused thee to be forgotten by many,
but the Church honors and invokes thee universally,
as the patron of hopeless cases,
of things despaired of.
Pray for me who am so miserable;
make use I implore thee,
of that particular privilege accorded to thee,
to bring visible and speedy help
where help is almost despaired of.
Come to my assistance in this great need
that I may receive the consolations and help
of heaven in all my necessities, tribulations,
and sufferings, particularly (Here make your request)
and that I may praise God
with thee and all the elect forever.
I promise thee, O blessed St. Jude,
to be ever mindful of this great favor,
and I will never cease to honor thee
as my special and powerful patron
and to do all in my power
to encourage devotion to thee. Amen.

Prayer E19

St. Patrick
O Great Apostle of Ireland,
glorious St. Patrick,
to whom under God,
so many are indebted for the most
precious of all treasures,
the great gift of Faith,
receive our fervent thanks
for the zeal and charity which have
been to thousands the source
of blessings so invaluable.
Ask for all who dwell in this land
and the land of thy labors,
the precious light of Faith,
and beg for us on whom its glorious
rays have long since beamed,
the grace to regulate our lives
by its sacred maxims.

Prayer E20

St. Therese
O little flower of Jesus,
Ever consoling troubled souls
with Heavenly Graces,
In your unfailing intercession
I place my confident trust.
From the Heart of our Blessed

Shower upon me your promised Roses
of Virtue and Grace, dear
St. Therese, so that swiftly
advancing in sanctity and in
perfect love of neighbor,
I may someday receive the
Crown of Life Eternal. Amen.

Our Father, who art in heaven.
Hallowed be Thy name;
Thy Kingdom come; Thy will be done
on earth as it is in heaven.

forgive those who trespass against us;
and lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil. Amen.

Prayer E22

When You’re Alone with Jesus
When you’re alone with Jesus
And He sweetly smiles on thee,
Will you gently whisper to Him
A little prayer for me?
And when I’m alone with Jesus
And all else is hid from view,
I’ll gently drop into His heart
A little prayer for you.
Jesus, Mary, Joseph,
My Jesus, mercy.
O Sacred Heart of Jesus,
I place my trust in Thee.
