Heavenly Father, the bond we share with our friends of other species is a wonderful and special gift from You. We now ask You to grant our special animal companions your Fatherly care and healing power to take away any suffering they have. Give us, their human friends, new understanding of our responsibilities to these creatures of Yours.

They trust in us as we trust in You. Our souls and theirs are on earth together to share friendship, affection, and caring. Hear our heartfelt prayers for these, Your ill or suffering animals. Fill them with healing Light and strength to overcome whatever physical weakness they have: (Here mention the names of the animals needing prayer).
Your goodness is turned upon every living thing; Your grace flows to all Your creatures, touching each of us with the reflection of Your love. Grant our special animal companions long and healthy lives. Bless our relationships with them, and if You see fit to take them from us, help us to understand that they are not gone from us, but only drawing closer to You.

May good St. Francis of Assisi, who honored You through all Your creatures. watch over our animal friends until they are safely with You in eternity, where we hope to someday join them in giving You honor forever. Amen.

Heavenly Father, human rights are precious in Your sight, and we ask You to answer our prayers for freedom, justice, and peace for all the nations of the world. Give our military the power to stand firm against its attackers. Make them aware of their responsibility to represent our nation with honor and truth, spiritual fortitude and moral courage, that our freedom may endure and spread outward to touch others who desperately need to be free.

Honoring our nation should not take precedence over honoring You, so let our leaders stand on your Commandments and our nation be governed by Your will. You  are not a God of violence, but of light and love. Help others to see You this way, and not use You as an excuse to hurt their fellow humans. Give us Your gifts of strength and peace. Help us to see ourselves without the self-righteous arrogance that spurns those who are different, yet with enough self-respect to fight for what is right 


Heavenly Father, I give you this day. Please get me through it, because I am not sure I can handle it on my own. I don’t feel I have enough strength, enough courage, or enough staying power, to do what I have to do today.  Help me to fight my sorrow and grief.  Help me do what I need to do in a better way than I did yesterday.  Help me to achieve my high ideals.  Give me hope, trust, and faith.  Be with me totally as I tend to business, and forgive me if I do not always do right.  Give me hope about the future, the right attitude about my past mistakes, and strength to deal with the present.
My life is not going too well right now.  It seems as though I have trouble at every turn, and giving You my trust is very difficult. At this time in my life, I don’t think I can drive myself any further, and I require Your help to give me the push I need to keep going.  I have fears right now and don’t know how to fight them. I don’t show enough faith. My soul is in a great struggle to fight its own fear and find true peace. 
I give my life to You for guidance; I give my body into Your Fatherly care; and I give You my soul, that You will provide it with the growth it requires.  I give You all my personal relationships with others, asking You to give us enough time together to fulfill what we need in order to enjoy eternity with one another. You have given me great gifts, for which I thank You from the bottom of my heart.  I want to honor You, Father.  Help me to do this.  Amen.

(To said before or after recitation of the Rosary)

Bright Lady of Heaven, bestow your beautiful, endless graces upon the child who now comes to you, greeting you with honor and seeking your maternal help.  Bend toward me to accept the string of roses I offer you, and touch me with your constant joy and hope.

Dear Heavenly Mother, God honored you by choosing you to be His only Son’s mother.  He has given food to our spiritually-starved world through your total, humble acceptance.  When you felt sorrow, Good Mother, you asked only that God’s will be done, and when you felt joy, you gave Him thanks for it. Centuries ago, you opened a bright future to our world by opening your soul to God’s light.  You delivered to our world the Hope that would give us eternal life, and from the cross Jesus gave us a caring Mother to help us, as you helped Him when he was a human child. Please continue to grant your earthly children your maternal protection and assistance.

Delight of God, Joy of Heaven, Hope of Earth, I give you my heartfelt gratitude for being a true Mother to me all my life. I will honor you by continuing to offer these Rosaries to you. Please continue to give me the help you have always given to me. Pour out upon me a beautiful shower of graces. Ask Your Son, Jesus, to grant me strength of soul, strength of heart, and strength of will, to be put to work as appropriately determined by God. Go to Him for me and give Him the prayer I put in your hands. He will not refuse His mother -- I am depending on it!  Hear my prayer, Sweet Heavenly Mother, in my present necessity: (here mention your petitions).  

Do not give a thought to the virtues I do not possess, or determine your help by what I deserve. If you considered this you would withhold your help, as I am both unworthy and undeserving.  Consider me only as the child who comes begging my Heavenly Mother for assistance, hoping you will hear my prayer and help me.  Amen.

Pick a favorite or two and have them turned into a work of art for you and your family to cherish for generations. As long as the photo is clear and high resolution, it may be suitable for a portrait.  
Have a portrait made of your beloved pet(s), of yourself with your pet, or your child with your pet. Animals are with us for a relatively short time, so now is the time to capture its image to have with you always in a very special way.​​
