November Prayer   

Psalm 23:1-6

The LORD is my shepherd, I shall not want.  He makes me lie down in green pastures; He leads me beside quiet waters.  He restores my soul; He guides me in the paths of righteousness For His name’s sake.  Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I fear no evil, for You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.  You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; You have anointed my head with oil; My cup overflows.  Surely goodness and lovingkindness will follow me all the days of my life, And I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever.

December Prayer of the Month

St. Benedict's Warfare Prayer Against Evil

May the Holy Cross be my light, Let not the dragon be my guide.  Be gone, Satan!  Do not tempt me with your vanities, what you are for me is evil, drink your own poison, In Jesus mighty name we pray.  Amen.  St. Benedict - Pray for Us.


January Prayer of the Month

Isaiah 41:10

fear not, for I am with you, be not dismayed for I am your God; I will strengthen you; I will help you, I will uphold you with my victorious right hand.
