Prayer for Protection in a Time of Storm or Danger

Lord and Holy Protector, like the disciples who were caught in their tiny boat in the midst of a mighty storm, we come to beg Your help.

We are fearful as we are surrounded by danger.

We feel helpless and small before the great power of this storm which is beyond our control.

While everything seems dark and dangerous, we place our trust in You, our Lord and God.

Sheltered here in our home, we are also shielded by Your Love against all that might harm us.

We know that You hear all prayers; so we now, filled with confidence, lift up our petitions to You, our God. 

(silent prayer) 

Lord, we fear for our home, for our lives and for all we hold dear.

Your Sacred Blessing is upon this home and upon each of us as well.

We are secure in the power of that blessing.

May the saving power of the Cross of Your Son, Jesus, encircle us and our home.

May all evil, all harm and injury, be repelled by that Sacred Sign of the Cross.

May the light of this candle be for us a holy sign of Your Divine Presence that fills our home in the midst of this danger.

Lord and Creator of Storms and of Rainbows, be with us in this time of danger.

Amen +

St. Augustine

Faith is to believe what you do not see; the reward of this faith is to see what you believe.

Jesus to St. Faustina

There is no misery that could be a match for My mercy, neither will misery exhaust it, because as it is being granted-it increases. The soul that trusts in My mercy is most fortunate, because I myself take care of it.

St. Therese of Lisieux

I assure you that God is much better than you believe. He is content with a glance, a sigh of love.

A Prayer to Jesus

Iesu dulcissime, in tuo sacratissimo Corde absconde me, ne permittas me separari a te, ab hoste maligno defende me.

O sweetest Jesus, hide me in Thy Sacred Heart, permit me not to be separated from Thee, defend me from the evil foe.

St. Therese of Lisieux

Jesus does not look so much at the greatness of our actions, or even at their difficulty, as at the love with which we do them.
