Please feel free to post your prayer request for today as a comment to this post. Your needs and intentions will be included in our daily offerings throughout the day and at the 3 o’clock hour for Divine Mercy, and your requests will be personally offered to our Heavenly Father, having faith in the words our Lord spoke to Saint Faustina, “Through the chaplet you will obtain everything, if what you ask for is compatible with My will.” (Diary, § 1731)


Prayer of Thanksgiving

“Almighty and Most Merciful and Loving God, on this last day of the year, we come before You with humble and contrite hearts. We recognize the weaknesses of our human nature, and the many times we have offended Your Love for us. Yet, we also recognize and are thankful for the unfathomable Mercy which Your Eternal Love holds for each of us, as You constantly lift us up and invite us to remain close to You.

“Thank You, Lord, for all the blessings of this past year – our life, our faith, the gift of love in our hearts which we hold for others and the love which others hold for us. We thank You for the gift of Your Spirit who guides us into knowing and loving You more intimately in our daily walks of faith. We even thank You for the gift of our crosses which You have given us to bear, so that we may conform ourselves more like unto Your Son, crosses which help to sanctify us on this side of Heaven and make us worthy of Your Kingdom.

“Most Loving Father, as we are about to begin a new year in this gift of life which we enjoy, may we begin this year with sincere prayer, opening our hearts and trusting in Your Divine Providence for us.

“Please help us to always continue to grow in holiness, confident in Your Merciful Presence always at our side, so that Your many gifts to us may only serve to give You glory, and so that our every thought, word and deed may serve to help build up the Body of Christ here on Earth in all those whom You place in our lives, as we await Your call, one day, to joyfully live with You forever.

We humbly pray this in Jesus’ Most Holy Name. Amen.”
