An Advent Call, Tuesday’s Prayer for Sisters and Nuns


Beloved Mother Mary hear our prayers for our Sisters and Nuns.

In this Advent season we ask that they seek to answer God’s call, as you had, through faith.

That they are encouraged to walk with trust on an unknown journey, hearts bound to your Son’s.

That you guide them to embrace fully the teachings of your Son, and to share unfalteringly his words.

Give them courage to continue to follow God’s will in the face of hardships or persecution.

Let them always look to you as a model of enduring love.

We ask this in Jesus’ name, Amen.

Fullness of Yes, Tuesday’s Prayer for Sisters and Nuns


Blessed Mother Mary,

You discerned in your heart and gave to God the fullness of yourself in love and faith. You did not know the demands your “yes” would place on you in the future as the mother of Jesus. You chose to walk trusting the will of our Holy Father.

Look now on our women, young and old, discerning a vocation as a Sister or Nun. Hear our prayers for them that they are open to God’s calling. Grant them peace in their seeking to know God’s will to enter into a religious life. Help them to persevere when confusion, fear, and discouragement may bring doubts.

Blessed Mother hear our prayers that the vocations of Sisters and Nuns be filled to overflowing!

Speed and Delays, Tuesday’s Prayer for Sisters and Nuns


In the speed of technology comes delays as well…its been one of those days with communication between my brain, the computer, and web site being a bit off-kilter.

I nearly gave up being able to post a prayer, and realized that prayers, written or not, are still reliable with the Holy.

And so a late, and simple prayer today for our Sisters and Nuns is that they persevere in their prayers and good works.

That, with the words of Pope Francis’ Proclamation of the Gospel in Today’s World, they will be rejuvenated in their commitment to share the Word of salvation. We pray that they are strengthened to resist even more so the wickedness and snares of the devil that entice us all in small and insidious ways.

Hear us, Oh Lord, in our prayers for your holy women, discerning and consecrated, who strive to lead us in faith.
