Prayer Request for The Parishioners of Saint Francis of Assisi Church
Add request or intention here: We can invoke the angels in times of physical danger. Scripture tells us how successfully they are able to ward off threats. Just think of what Daniel reported after a night in the lions’ den: “My God sent his angel and closed the lions’ mouths so that they have not hurt me” (6:23). This prayer draws from the promise of the angels in Psalm 91. I lift up my eyes to the hills. From where does my help come? My help comes from the Lord, who made heaven and earth.
A Prayer while we shelter from the storm
The Lord is our keeper; God our Father will keep us from all evil; he will keep our life in his hands. Under thy protection, we take refuge, O Mother of God: do not despise our petitions in time of trouble, but rescue us from dangers. Heavenly Father, send your angels to take charge of us, to guard us in all our ways. On their hands, may they bear us up. We cling to you in love, deliver us. Protect us, for we know your name. Be with us in this trouble. Rescue us and honor us. Satisfy us with long life and your salvation. Have mercy on us Lord. When we stand before your face, show leniency toward our wretchedness. Lord have mercy. Lord have mercy. Christ have mercy. Christ have mercy. Lord have mercy. Lord have mercy. Holy Mary, queen of angels, pray for us. Angels of God, pray for us. My guardian angel and the guardian angels of each of us here, pray for us. St. Joseph, protector of the family, pray for us. Amen.
