Prayer before the start of the day

O Jesus, through the Immaculate Heart of Mary,
I offer you my prayers, works, joys, and sufferings of this day,
in union with the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass throughout the world.
I offer them for all the intentions of your Sacred Heart;
the salvation of souls, the reparation for sin, the reunion of all Christians;
I offer them for the intentions of our bishops and of all members of the Apostleship of Prayer,
and in particular for those recommended by the Holy Father (i.e., the Pope) this month.Amen.

Come Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of your faithful and kindle in them the fire of your love.
V. Send forth your Spirit, and they shall be created.
R. And You shall renew the face of the earth.

Let us pray.

O, God, who by the light of the Holy Spirit,
did instruct the hearts of the faithful,
grant that by the same Holy Spirit we may be truly wise and ever enjoy His consolations.
Through Christ Our Lord. Amen.

Prayer before work

Direct, O God, we beseech you,
our actions with Your holy inspiration.
And help them on with Your gracious assistance, 
So that every prayer, study, work,
And every undertaking of every member of our family,
Including all our relatives and friends,
maybe begin with You and by You, dear God,
be happily and successfully ended.
We ask this in Jesus’ name, Amen.
