Prayer for Protection:
Precious Blood of Jesus, wash over me –
my heart, my will, my intellect, my memory, my imagination and my body.
Do the same for each member of my family
and protect all of us from the harassment of the devil.
Cover our home, our vehicles, our places of work, and all places where we will be today.
Bind, rebuke and cast out any evil influence.
Fill our home with your holy angels.
Mother Mary, spread your motherly mantle of protection over me and mine today,and let God’s peace and love reign in our home. (Pierlot)
Consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary
I am thine Immaculate One, with all that I have in time and eternity.
Personal Marion Prayer: Dear Mother Mary, please help me to be patient, as you were in all things; to be a shining example of gentleness and love in my home. Fill my heart with Your love so that I may love all the people you have placed in my life as You would have me love them; Especially those I don’t care to be with or that I find repugnant. (Soley)
Holy Spirit Novena
Dearest Holy Spirit, confiding in Your deep, personal love for me, I am making this novena for the following request, if it be Your Holy Will to grant it: (mention your request).Teach me, Divine Spirit, to know and seek my last end; grant me the holy fear of God; grant me true contrition and patience.

Make me a faithful disciple of Jesus and an obedient child of the Church. Give me efficacious grace sufficient to keep the Commandments and to receive the Sacraments worthily.

Novena Prayer to ST. PHILOMENA
O FAITHFUL VIRGIN and glorious martyr, St. Philomena, who works so many miracles on behalf of the poor and sorrowing, have pity on me. Thou knowest the multitude and diversity of my needs. Behold me at thy feet, full of misery, but full of hope. I entreat thy charity , O great Saint! Graciously hear me and obtain from God a favorable answer to the request which I now humbly lay before thee … (Here specify your petition.) I am firmly convinced that through thy merits, through the scorn, the sufferings and the death thou didst endure, united to the merits of the Passion and death of Jesus, thy Spouse, I shall obtain what I ask of thee, and in the joy of my heart I will bless God, who is admirable in His Saints. Amen. Saint Philomena, Powerful with God, Pray for us!
Prayers for Family
Prayer – from Apostolate for Family Consecration
Dearest Holy Family, please enable me to see the causes of my daily sins and faults and give them to Jesus so that he can wash them in his Precious Blood and transform them into virtues.
Help me to visualize how you would act if you were in m place at this time and how you would treat the members of my family. Help me to show affection rather than anger to all you bring into my life, especially those in my own family
Prayer for our Family #3 – Mother Teresa of Calcutta
Heavenly Father, you have given us the model of life in the Holy Family of Nazareth. Help us, O Loving Father, to make our family another Nazareth where love, peace and joy reign. May it be deeply contemplative, intensely Eucharistic, revived with joy.
Help us to stay together in joy and sorrow in family prayer. Teach us to see Jesus in the members of our families, especially in their distressing disguise. May the Eucharistic heart of Jesus make our hearts humble like his and help us to carry out our family duties
in a holy way. May we love one another as God loves each one of us, more and more each day, and forgive each other’s faults as you forgive our sins.
Help us, O Loving Father, to take whatever you give and give whatever you take with a big smile. Immaculate Heart of Mary, cause of our joy, pray for us. St. Joseph, pray for us. Holy Guardian Angels, be always with us, guide and protect us.Amen.
