Prayer to JESUS, the Black Nazarene

Lord Jesus of Nazareth, teach us to pray always. Guard our thoughts and senses, so that all that we do may be pleasing to You. Through Your suffering and death, You brought us everlasting life. Give us the strength of the Holy Spirit, so that we may never grow tired of serving You and our neighbors. By Your suffering and prayer at Gethsemane, teach us obedience to God’s will I spite of hardships and trials in life. Help us to honestly and faithfully pray; and not to do good only to be seen by people. 

[Pause for Personal Intention]

Lord God, come and strengthen the hope and faith that You have given us, so that we may truly experience Your presence in our lives. 

Through Christ our Lord. Amen.
