Memorize these prayers and turn to them frequently to remain in the presence of God during your daily duties.

St. Paul wrote that we should “Pray without ceasing” (1 Thessalonians 5:17). For most of us that is not possible on a practical level, but we can do what we can to remain focused on God throughout the day, interspersing short prayers that bring our mind back into God’s presence.

Here is a collection of brief prayers that can be memorized and said during our most mundane tasks.

1Jesus, Son of God, have mercy on me!

2O sweetest Heart of Jesus! I implore that I may ever love you more and more.

3Jesus, my God, I love you above all things!

4My Jesus, mercy!

5Lord, do with me what you will.

6May your will be done, Lord

7Sweet Jesus, let me not be separated from you!
