9 Most Popular Christian Prayers you NEED TO KNOW.


1.The Lords Prayer – “Our Father who art in heaven…”

The Lords Prayer
Our Father who art in heaven,
hallowed be thy name.
Thy kingdom come.
Thy will be done
on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread,
and forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those who trespass against us,
and lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil.
For thine is the kingdom,
and the power, and the glory,
for ever and ever.
Amen.-

2.The St Jude Prayer – A Prayer for Help

O most holy apostle, Saint Jude, faithful servant and friend of Jesus, the Church honoureth and invoketh thee universally, as the patron of hopeless cases, and of things almost despaired of.
Pray for me, who am so miserable. Make use, I implore thee, of that particular privilege accorded to thee, to bring visible and speedy help where help was almost despaired of.
Come to mine assistance in this great need, that I may receive the consolation and succor of Heaven in all my necessities, tribulations, and sufferings, particularly (here make your request) and that I may praise God with thee and all the elect throughout eternity.
I promise thee, O blessed Jude, to be ever mindful of this great favour, to always honour thee as my special and powerful patron, and to gratefully encourage devotion to thee.
Amen.
3.Make Me an Instrumernt of Your Peace
  • Lord, make me an instrument of your peace.
    Where there is hatred, let me sow love,
    Where there is injury, pardon
    Where there is doubt, faith,
    Where there is despair, hope,
    Where there is darkness, light,
    Where there is sadness, joy.
    O Divine Master, grant that I may not so much
    seek to be consoled as to console,
    not so much to be understood as to understand,
    not so much to be loved, as to love;
    for it is in giving that we receive,
    it is in pardoning that we are pardoned,
    it is in dying that we awake to eternal life.
  • 4.The Serenity Prayer – God Grant Me The Serenity

    God grant me the serenity
    to accept the things I cannot change;
    courage to change the things I can;
    and wisdom to know the difference.
    Living one day at a time;
    Enjoying one moment at a time;
    Accepting hardships as the pathway to peace;
    Taking, as He did, this sinful world
    as it is, not as I would have it;
    Trusting that He will make all things right
    if I surrender to His Will;
    That I may be reasonably happy in this life
    and supremely happy with Him
    Forever in the next.
    Amen.
  • 5.The Footprints Prayer – Footprints in the Sand

    One night I had a dream…
    I dreamed I was walking along the beach with the Lord, and
    Across the sky flashed scenes from my life.
    For each scene I noticed two sets of footprints in the sand;
    One belonged to me, and the other to the Lord.
    When the last scene of my life flashed before us,
    I looked back at the footprints in the sand.
    I noticed that many times along the path of my life,
    There was only one set of footprints.
    I also noticed that it happened at the very lowest
    and saddest times in my life
    This really bothered me, and I questioned the Lord about it.
    “Lord, you said that once I decided to follow you,
    You would walk with me all the way;
    But I have noticed that during the
    most troublesome times in my life,
    There is only one set of footprints.
    I don’t understand why in times when I
    needed you the most, you should leave me.
    The Lord replied, “My precious, precious
    child. I love you, and I would never,
    never leave you during your times of
    trial and suffering.
    When you saw only one set of footprints,
    It was then that I carried you.
  • 6.The Hail Mary Prayer

    Hail Mary, full of grace,
    The Lord is with thee.
    Blessed art thou among women,
    And blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus.
    Holy Mary, Mother of God,
    Pray for us sinners,
    Now and at the hour of our death.
    Amen!.
  • 7.Our Table Grace

    My family says this every night before dinner:
    Thank you Mother Earth for the food that gives us life 
    Thank you to the hands that prepared the meal 
    And we always remember those that don’t have enough 
    (Even the animals)
  • 8.The Peace Prayer of St Francis

    Lord, make me an instrument of your peace.
    Where there is hatred, let me sow love.
    Where there is injury, pardon.
    Where there is doubt, faith.
    Where there is despair, hope.
    Where there is darkness, light.
    Where there is sadness, joy.
    O Divine Master,
    grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled, 
    as to console;
    to be understood, as to understand;
    to be loved, as to love.
    For it is in giving that we receive.
    It is in pardoning that we are pardoned,
    and it is in dying that we are born to Eternal Life.
    Amen.
  • 9.The Prayer to the Sacred Heart of Jesus

    Oh Lord Jesus Christ, to Your most Sacred Heart I confide this intention {name petition}.
    Only look upon me, then do what Your love inspires. Let Your Sacred Heart decide. I count on You. I trust in You. I throw myself on Your mercy. Lord Jesus, You will not fail me.
    Sacred Heart of Jesus, I trust in You.
    Sacred Heart of Jesus, I believe in Your love for me.
    Sacred Heart of Jesus, Your kingdom come.
    Sacred Heart of Jesus, I have asked You for many favors, but I earnestly implore this one. Take it, place it in Your open Heart.
    When the Eternal Father looks upon it, He will see it covered with Your Precious Blood. It will be no longer my prayer, but Yours, Jesus. Sacred Heart of Jesus, I place all my trust in You. Let me not be disappointed.
    Amen.
