Pin on St. Peter & St. PaulOpening Prayer

Heavenly Father, we praise and thank you for the lives and missions of St. Peter and St. Paul, ardent apostles of Your beloved Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ. As you have enriched them with many graces and gifts, we ask you, Father, to meet our needs, both spiritual and material (ask for the grace you want to achieve). This we ask through the merits of your Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, and through the intercession of St. Peter and St. Paul. Amen.

Scriptural Reading (Acts 3:1-10)

Once, when Peter and John were going up to the Temple for the prayers at the ninth hour, it happened that there was a man being carried along. He was a cripple from birth; and they used to put him down every day near the Temple entrance called the Beautiful Gate so that he could beg from the people going in. When this man saw Peter and John on their way into the Temple he begged from them. Peter, and John too, looked straight at him and said, ‘Look at us.’ He turned to them expectantly, hoping to get something from them, but Peter said, ‘I have neither silver nor gold, but I will give you what I have: in the name of Jesus Christ the Nazarene, walk!’ Then he took him by the right hand and helped him to stand up. Instantly his feet and ankles became firm, he jumped up, stood, and began to walk, and he went with them into the Temple, walking and jumping and praising God. Everyone could see him walking and praising God, and they recognized him as the man who used to sit begging at the Beautiful Gate of the Temple. They were all astonished and perplexed at what had happened to him.

The Word of the Lord…

—PAUSE FOR A MOMENT OF MEDITATION—

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit, as it was in the beginning, is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.

DAY 7 PRAYER

The Holy Apostles Saint Peter And Saint Paul Painting by Svitozar NenyukSaint Peter, Prince of the Apostles, your name was Simon, who Jesus Christ changed to Peter (Cephas), in order to be the rock on which the Lord would build the Temple of Faith. Changing Your name, the Lord gave you the keys of secrets and of the powers, in heaven and on earth, saying to you, “Whatever you bind on earth will be considered bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth would be considered loosed in heaven.” Resting on this power of yours, I come before you, asking that you open my ways at work, business, coexistence, relationships and close the doors of whoever may be working against my material and spiritual progress. Just as you commanded the cripple at the beautiful gate to rise and walk in the name of Jesus, also command that my “crippled state” may “rise and walk.” Glorious Saint Peter, you who know the secrets of Heaven and Earth, hear my appeal and answer the prayer I address to you. O glorious St. Paul, who from a persecutor of Christianity, did become a most ardent apostle of zeal; and who to make known the Saviour Jesus Christ to the ends of the world did suffer with joy, from imprisonment, scourging, stonings, shipwrecks and persecutions of every kind; and in the end did shed your blood to the last drop. Obtain for us the grace to receive, as favours of the Divine Mercy, infirmities, tribulations, and misfortunes of the present life, so that the vicissitudes of this our exile will not render us cold in the service of God, but will render us always more faithful and fervent (make other particular requests). Amen.

Our Father…10 Hail Marys…Glory be… (For the frustrated and depressed)
