May I offer you …

During Lent, we’re doing morning offerings with the kids before school and then a midday offering when they come home. I’m including the prayers, here, in case you want to copy or modify them for your own family.

Our Morning Offering During Lent

[Make the Sign of the Cross]

Dear Jesus,

Thank you for another day and this gift of life.

I offer to you my prayers,

all that I do, and all that I may struggle with

as I walk with you during Lent on the path toward Easter.

Help me remember today and always that I am your body here on earth.

You are in my heart, my hands and feet, eyes and ears.

May I try my hardest to act as you would,

and to be your disciple by sharing your love

with all I meet today.


Our Midday Offering During Lent

[Make the Sign of the Cross]

Dear Jesus,

My day is half over, Thank you for always being at my side in the hours passed and the hours yet to be.

I pray for those who need my prayers and for all those who have no one to pray for them. I especially pray this afternoon for the intentions of our Holy Father, Pope Benedict the 16th.

and … (Your own special intentions)

Always in your name we pray, (Hail Mary and a Glory Be)
