God, my Heavenly Father, I believe in you: increase my faith. I trust in you: strengthen my trust. I love you: let me love you more and more. I am sorry for my sins: deepen my sorrow. I worship you as my first beginning, I love you as my last end, I praise you as my constant helper, and call on you as my loving protector. Guide me by your wisdom, correct me by your justice, comfort me by your mercy, and protect me by your power.
I offer you, Lord, my thoughts: to be fixed on you, my words: to have you for their theme, my actions: to reflect my love for you, my sufferings: to be endured for your greater glory. I want to do what you ask of me: the way you ask, for as long as you ask, because you ask it, Heavenly Father enlighten my understanding, strengthen my will, purify my heart, and make me holy. Help me to repent of my past sins, to resist temptation in the future, to rise above my human weaknesses, and to grow stronger as a Christian. Let me love you, my Lord and my God, and see myself as I really am: a pilgrim in this world, a Christian called to respect and love all whose lives I touch, those in authority over me or those under my authority, my friends and my enemies.
Help me to conquer anger by gentleness, greed by generosity, apathy by fervor. Help me to forget myself and reach out toward others. Make me prudent in planning, courageous in taking risks, patient in suffering, and unassuming in prosperity.
Keep me, Father, attentive at prayer, temperate in food and drink, diligent in my work, and firm in my good intentions. Let my conscience be clear, my conduct without fault, my speech blameless, and my life well – ordered. Put me on guard against my human weaknesses, let me cherish your love for me, keep your law, and come at last to your salvation. Teach me to realize that this world is passing, that my true future is the happiness of heaven, that life on earth is short, and the life to come eternal.
Help me to prepare for death with a proper fear of judgment, but a greater trust in your goodness. Lead me safely through death to the endless joy of heaven. Grant this through Christ our Lord. Amen.
God, Heavenly Father, in the name of Jesus Christ your beloved Son crucified,, I beg you to forgive all the transgressions of my past life.
God Heavenly Father, in the name of your crucified, divine Son, I beg you to grant me the grace to serve you in this life according to your holy will.
God, Heavenly Father, in the name of Jesus of Nazareth, your only begotten Son, I beg you to have mercy on me at the hour of my death and to receive my soul. Through the same Christ our Lord. Amen.
