The Importance of a Morning Offering Prayer
Transform your ordinary into extraordinary love!
What if every moment of your day could be a form of prayer and offering of love if you will to our Lord – would you continue wasting all your precious moments, acts, works, thoughts if there was a way to offer them to Jesus? We all struggle to find time to pray yet there is a simple answer a simple way to start making every moment count! Start your day with a Morning Offering – this simple prayer – will transform your day from ordinary to a gift and offering.
Each morning before our breakfast grace my children and I say our morning offering – our days go instantly from just another day to a day of love.
Here is the simple Morning Offering Prayer we say each morning:
O Jesus,through the Immaculate Heart of Mary,I offer You all my prayers, works, joys and sufferings of this day for all the intentions of Your Sacred Heart,in union with the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass throughout the world,in reparation for my sins,for the intentions of all my relatives and friends,and in particular for the intentions of the Holy Father. Amen <><
St. Therese of Liseaux one of my favourite saints practiced the spirituality of the Little Ways – she believed she could win heaven by doing all the small things with great love. Most of us won’t be called to do extraordinary things in this life like the maytrs but we are all called to do things with great love. This is just one simple way to start striving to do that – offering your actions up throughout the day is the next wonderful step to take – a great tool for this is good deed/sacrifice beads.
Go ahead what are you waiting for? Don’t let another precious moment go by – start your day right with a morning offering!
