Morning Prayers

Sign of the Cross
We join the first three fingers of our right hand together (thumb, index and middle finger), and we bend the other two fingers into the palm. Then, we reverently trace the sign of the Cross by touching our forehead, mid-section, right and left shoulder, while saying:
†In the name of the Father * and of the Son * and of the Holy Spirit. Amen. (3)

Prayer of Surrender
The greatest gift that God gives to us is Himself — His very Life.
To His Love, we respond with love — by surrendering our life as a gift to Him.
O Heavenly Father,
I surrender myself to You this day.
I give You my heart, my will — my whole life.
May Your holy will be accomplished in me — today
and for all eternity. Amen.
The Lord’s Prayer
Our Father, Who art in heaven,
hallowed be Thy name.
Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done
on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread;
and forgive us our trespasses
as we forgive those who trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil. Amen.

The Angelic Salutation
Rejoice, Mother of God,
Virgin Mary, full of grace,
the Lord is with you.
Blessed are you among women,
and blessed is the fruit of your womb,
for you have borne Christ,
the Saviour and Redeemer of our souls.

To My Guardian Angel
Angel of God, my holy guardian,
given to me for my protection,
I implore you to enlighten me this day,
to protect me from all evil,
to urge me on to do good deeds
and to guide me on the path of salvation. Amen.

To My Patron Saint
Saint (name of patron saint), pray for me, for with fervour I come to you, faithful guide and intercessor for my soul.

Sign of the Cross
†In the name of the Father * and of the Son *
and of the Holy Spirit. Amen. (3)
