Prayer before any Task

Almighty God, Our Help and Refuge, Who knows that we can do nothing right without Your guidance and help; direct me by Your wisdom and power, that I may accomplish this task and, whatever I do according to Your divine will, so that it may be beneficial to me and others and to the glory of Your Name.  Amen.



Prayer after any Task

Thank you, Lord, for Your strength and guidance in my work.  You are the fulfilment of all good things. Fill also my soul with joy and gladness, that I may praise You always.  Amen.

Saint (name), Holy Mother of God and all the Saints, who have pleased God in Your lives; pray to Christ my Lord that I might live this day in peace, love and Humility.

Pray unto God for me, O Holy Saint (name), well pleasing to God: for I turn to you, who are a speedy and intercessor for my soul.
