What to pray when you don’t know what to pray.

What do you do

when faced with an impossible situation, or tragedy


you want to pray

but words have escaped you?

Pray the Lords prayer, the rosary, the sign of the cross, a favorite bible verse like the 23rd psalm

We teach memorized prayers, and at times bible verses

not just to do it and say we did it

but those prayers are meant to help us in times when we can’t come up with the words ourselves

Here are some of my favorite prayers and bible verses(in no particular order) I have found in neat picture form doing web searches:

OH Sacred Heart of Jesus I place all my trust in thee.

and finally
