Prayer Corner

A little time to give thanks

Prayer is just being yourself and talking to God with honesty and sincerity, as we talk with a friend.

It is talking with a God who is very kind, who showers His blessings equally on all and who is always ready to forgive us, no matter what we do.

It is coming to Him and telling Him everything that is in our heart.
However, it is also good to learn how to recite ‘prayers’.  Making prayers a part of the daily schooling is indeed beneficial. Such prayers could come in handy in moments of necessity. Prayers help instill certain values such as humility and discipline in school children; in this way the school helps children become conscious of the essence of life. Prayers are the means to unite, to reflect on one’s values and a way to thank the Almighty for everything. School prayers will indeed give the thoughts of children the right direction.

Hail Mary full of grace, the Lord is with thee;

Prayer to St. Joseph
Dear St. Joseph, whose protection is so great, so prompt, so strong, before the throne of God, I place in you all my interests and desires.
Dear 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.
Dear St. Joseph, I never weary contemplating you and 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.

This prayer was found in the fiftieth year of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. In 1505 it was sent from the Pope to Emperor Charles, when he was going into battle. Whoever shall read this prayer or hear it, or keep it about themselves, shall never die a sudden death or be drowned, nor shall poison take effect on them; neither shall they fall into the hands of the enemy, or shall be burned in any fire or shall be overpowered in any battle.
Say for nine mornings in a row for anything you may desire. It has never been known to fail.
