For the next couple of days we are going to pray some traditional prayers. Today we are going to reaffirm our faith.

Today’s prayer is the Act of Faith. Of course, God doesn’t need us to make acts of faith. We do. By making a prayer of faith frequently we remind ourselves of our beliefs and encourage ourselves to live in faith. The following prayer is a prayer that I learned as a child and taught my son.

O my God, I firmly believe that You are one God in three divine Persons, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit; I believe that Your Divine Son became man and died for our sins, and that He shall come to judge the living and the dead. I believe these and all the truths that the holy Catholic Church teaches, because You have revealed them, who can neither deceive nor be deceived. Amen.”

Dear Lord, I believe, help my unbelief!

31 Days Writing Challenge

Write 31 Days Challenge – 31 Days of Prayer!

Do you remember when I wrote that I was going to cut down on my blogging schedule? Well, it looks like I will be writing {almost} for the next 31 days. LOL!


After some reflection, I have decided to participate in the Write 31 Days writing challenge. I participated in this challenge last year on my other blog; however, this year, I feel lead to take the challenge here on Simple Catholic Living.

And, the focus of this challenge will be prayer.

Therefore, for the next 31 days, I will post a prayer of some sort *{almost} every day. Some prayers will be traditional prayers, some will be lesser known prayers, and some will be prayers that I write from the heart. I will link to each day’s prayers here for easy reference.

Why am I doing this?

If you spend any time here at Simple Catholic Living, you know prayer is important to me. I’ve mentioned this before: prayer is essential if we are to live a Christian life. It is the foundation of our relationship with God. Without prayer, our relationship with God will be mediocre, at best or nonexistent, at worst.

Besides that, the world desperately needs prayer. It needs God. Sometimes, it seems like the world, and everyone in it, has gone completely nuts. And, the only effective way to have a real and lasting change is through prayer. Jesus says that with the faith of a mustard seed we can move mountains. I truly believe that, with prayer and faith, we can make a difference in this world.

Will you join me? Each day, come back to the blog for a new prayer. Or, save this post and come back to it daily. Like I mentioned above, I will link to the day’s prayers here so they are all in one place. Together, let us pray for ourselves, our loved ones, and for everyone.

God bless.
