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.

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

 

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

 

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

 

4
My Jesus, mercy!

 

5
Lord, do with me what you will.

 

6
May your will be done, Lord

 

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