Youth Talking to God

Voice-of-the-young

Here are short prayers from the heart written by female undergraduates from various religions.  We thank Sr Mariola Sequeira MSA for meeting with the students and gathering these prayers. Note two lovely traits: Many of the prayers show a deep sense of gratitude to God and the desire to be good persons.

Oh Lord, I thank you for giving me such a beautiful life. I thank you for giving me happiness. I thank you for giving me parents and friends for overcoming my loneliness. Thank you, Lord! I want to thank you for each and everything you have given to me in my life.

Lord, you have made the Sun to rule over the day, and Moon to rule over the night. You are my merciful Father. I believe that I receive what I ask in your name, Lord. Today I thank you for being there for me always. I will always adore you and worship you, Amen

——————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————

Loving Sweet Jesus, thank you for all the blessings you have showered on me at every moment of my life, whether good or bad. Thank you for being such a nice friend who knows my mistakes, my weaknesses but still accepts me and is always ready to help me whenever I need. Thank you for being a reason for a smile on my face. This life may be full of sins and disappointments, but with you I can overcome any obstacle. I love you Jesus. Praise you for all the miracles you have done in my life. Amen.

Almighty God, words cannot describe, and my little actions cannot define, the mercy you have showered upon us. Today with all my heart and mind I would like to ask you for one most important thing, my father. Please, once again establish peace and bring your kingdom to this earth. Amen.

——————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————

Oh Lord, I your humble child, come into your presence to ask for forgiveness for all the bad I have done to others and to myself.  Lord, keep your loving and guiding hand on me and please forgive me. Amen.

Lord, please help all the poor people. Always stay with me, Lord. Bless me and my family. Oh, Heavenly Father, please help the girl child.

Baba, you have always been the best part of me and my life. Thank you for all the little things that you do and the wishes that you fulfill even if I forget them. I just wanna pray: always be at my side in all the happiness, joy and sorrow. I love you; you are my best friend.

Dear God, I would like to tell you that I really don’t like asking for myself, so I would rather ask you to protect my mamma, daddy, and my younger sister and would like to thank you for making me fall in love with music. Keep loving us.

Thank you, God, for giving me a beautiful life. Thank you, God, for being with me. Thank you for giving me a loving family and friends. Thank you, God, for my happiness. Thank you, God, for loving me. Thank you, Lord.
