Basic  Daily Prayers




Our Father, who art in heaven,
hallowed be thy name;
thy kingdom come;
thy will be done on earth
as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread;
and forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those that trespass against us;
and lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us fromevil.


Hail, Mary,
full of grace,
the Lord is with thee.
Blessed art thou among women,
and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus.
Holy Mary, Mother of God,
pray for us sinners, now,
and at the hour of our death.


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.



I believe in God, the Father almighty,
creator of heaven and earth
and in Jesus Christ,
his only Son, our Lord,
who was conceived by the Holy Spirit,
born of the Virgin Mary,
suffered under Pontius Pilate,
was crucified, died, and was buried.
He descended into hell.
The third day he rose again from the dead.
He ascended into heaven,
and sits at the right hand of God the Father almighty.
From thence he shall come
to judge the living and the dead.
I believe in the Holy Spirit,
the holy Catholic Church,
the Communion of Saints,
the forgiveness of sins,
the resurrection of the body,
and life everlasting.



O my God, I firmly believe that You are One God in Three Divine Persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

I believe that Jesus Christ died for my sins and will come again to judge the living and the dead.

I believe all that the Catholic Church teaches, because You have revealed it and You can neither deceive nor be deceived. Amen!


O God, I hope with complete trust
that you will give me,
through the merits of Jesus Christ,
all necessary grace in this world
and everlasting life in the world to come,
for this is what you have promised
and you always keep your promises.


O God, I love you with my whole heart
above all things,
because you are infinitely good;
and for your sake
I love my neighbour as I love myself.



O my God, I am heartily sorry for having offended you,
and I detest all my sins
because I dread the loss of Heaven and the pains of hell,
but most of all because they offend you, my God;
you are all-good and deserving of all my love.
I firmly resolve, with the help of your grace,
never to offend you again,
and carefully to avoid the occasins of sin.

Lord Jesus, Son of God, have mercy on me, a sinner.
