Blessing Of A Bridge

V. Our help is in the name of the Lord.
R. Who has made heaven and earth.

V. The Lord be with you.
R. And with your spirit.

Let us pray.

Hear our prayers, Lord,
and be so kind as to bless this bridge,
and all who pass over it,
that in the successes as well as the failures of this world
they may always be protected by Your assistance,
through Christ our Lord.

R. Amen.

Let us pray.

Hear us, holy Lord, Father almighty, eternal God,
and be so kind as to send your holy angel
from heaven to guard, visit, and defend this bridge,
and all who pass over it, through Christ our Lord.

R. Amen.

What is prayer?

Prayer is the lifting up of our minds and hearts to God.

Let us lift up our hearts with our hands to the Lord in the heavens. (Lamentations 3:41)

How do we know that God always hears our prayers if we pray properly?

We know that God always hears our prayers if we pray properly because Our Lord has promised: “If you ask the Father anything in My name, He will give it to you.”

And whatever you ask in my name, that I will do, in order that the Father may be glorified in the Son. (John 14:13)

Why do we not always obtain what we pray for?

We do not always obtain what we pray for, either because we have not prayed properly or because God sees that what we are asking would not be for our good.

You ask and do not receive, because you ask amiss, that you may spend it upon your passions. (James 4:3)

Prayer from the Baltimore Catechism
