Look Upon Me

Lord Jesus Christ, 
eternal and merciful God, 
Creator and Redeemer of all,
listen to my prayer. 

Look on me, merciful Lord, 
as You looked on Your Mother, Mary, 
standing in sorrow beneath Your Cross. 

Let me feel in my heart her compassion for You, 
and let my eyes weep for Your sorrows, 
caused by my sinful life. 

Call me back from the darkness 
to my Father's house, 
give me a new heart 
and a place at Your side in the banquet 
You have prepared for me. 

Amen.

Mary, You Are Mine

Hail, Mary, my joy, my glory, my heart and my soul!
You are all mine through your mercy, and I am all yours. 
But I am not yours completely enough.

Destroy in me all that may be displeasing to God.
Place and cultivate in me everything that is pleasing to you. 

Amen.

Forgive Me Lord Jesus

Lord, Jesus, I come before You, just as I am. 
I am sorry for my sins, 
I repent of my sins, 
please forgive me. 
In Your name, 
I forgive all others for what they have done against me. 
I renounce Satan, 
the evil spirits and all their works. 
I give You my entire self. 
Lord Jesus, now and forever, 
I invite You into my life Jesus. 
I accept You as my Lord and Saviour. 
Heal me, change me, 
and strengthen me in body, soul and spirit.

Compassion for the Sick

Merciful Jesus, 
during Your life on earth 
You showed great concern for the sick and the infirm. 
Have compassion now on all those 
who are sick or in pain. 
Grant them a healing of mind and body 
and restore their strength and spirit. 
Comfort them with the knowledge 
that we are praying for them, 
and give them peace with a sense of Your presence. 
May they know that in the special way 
they are united with You, 
their suffering Christ. 
May they contribute to the welfare 
of the whole People of God 
by associating themselves freely 
with Your passion and death 
for the salvation of the world. 
Bless, too, those who take care of the sick. 
In their own time of need, 
bestow on them a hundred fold the blessings 
they have given to others.

Amen.

Those in Agony

Infinitely merciful Father, 
I offer You by the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary 
with St. Joseph, 
the nine choirs of Angels 
and all the Saints, 
the adorations, praises, love and infinite holiness of Your beloved Son, 
Our Lord Jesus Christ, 
His heart wounded and burning with love, 
all His blood shed for us, 
all His sacred wounds 
and in them my life and sufferings of all people, 
for my salvation and for the salvation of the whole world, 
the deliverance of all souls from Purgatory 
and the praise of Your merciful Father, 
I offer You the wounds of our Lord Jesus Christ 
for those in agony today.

Amen.

Good Resolutions

O my God, I give You heartfelt thanks 
for all the graces You have conferred on me.
Pardon me, I beseech You, 
of all the negligence and the distractions 
of which I have been guilty. 
Give me strength to carry out the resolutions that I have made. 

Help me to keep my good resolutions, O sweet Virgin Mary; 
and recall them to my memory, 
if I should ever forget or neglect them.

Grant Us Your Grace

O most Sacred Heart of Jesus, 
King and center of all hearts, 
dwell in our hearts and be our King; 
grant us by Your grace to love each other truly and chastely, 
even as You have loved Your spotless Bride, the Church, 
and have given Yourself up for her. 

Bestow upon us that mutual love 
and Christian forbearance 
which are so highly acceptable in Your sight, 
and a mutual patience in bearing each other's defects; 
for we are certain that no living creature is free from them.

Nurse's Prayer

O most Sacred Heart of Jesus, 
King and center of all hearts, 
dwell in our hearts and be our King; 
grant us by Your grace to love each other truly and chastely, 
even as You have loved Your spotless Bride, the Church, 
and have given Yourself up for her. 

Bestow upon us that mutual love 
and Christian forbearance 
which are so highly acceptable in Your sight, 
and a mutual patience in bearing each other's defects; 
for we are certain that no living creature is free from them.

How Sweet and Lovely You Are

O Mary, I wish I could see how 
you behaved toward your father and mother, 
especially toward St. Anne; 
and then how you behaved toward the priests of the temple; 
and then toward St. Joseph; 
and toward St. Elizabeth, 
and St. John the Baptist; 
and afterwards toward the Apostles. 
I should see how sweet 
and lovely you were to every one of them; 
but still your heart was with Jesus only. 
And they would all feel and understand this, 
however kind you were to them.

Amen.

Guide My Path

Holy Mary, my patron,
I ask you to pray for me to Jesus your son.
Through your constant prayers,
may God continue to guide my path
and help me to follow Jesus in love.

Holy Mary, pray for me
and for all the people of God.

Amen.

Merits of Your Sacrifice

O Lord Jesus, 
in order that the merits of your sacrifice on the Cross 
might be applied to every soul of all time, 
you willed that it should be renewed upon the altar. 
At the Last Supper, you said: 
"Do this in remembrance of me." 
By these words you gave your apostles and their successors 
the power to consecrate 
and the command to do what you yourself did. 
I believe that the Mass is both a sacrifice and a memorial,
reenacting your passion, 
death and resurrection. 
Help me to realize that the Mass is the greatest gift of God to us 
and our greatest gift to God. 

Amen.

Pure Heart

O Guardian and father, Saint Joseph, 
to whose faithful custody
Christ Jesus and Mary was committed; 
I pray and beseech you by each of these dear pledges, 
Jesus and Mary, that, 
being preserved from all uncleanness, 
I may with spotless mind, pure heart, 
and a chaste body, 
ever serve Jesus and Mary all the days of my life.

Amen.

O Lord, Let me unite with You, 
that I may more deeply love You. 
May I help make reparation to Your adorable Heart 
and the heart of Your Mother, Mary. 
With greatest love, 
I offer myself to You 
and pray that You will accept my sacrifice of greatest love. 
I give myself to You and unite in Your gift of Yourself to me. 
Come and possess my soul. 

July 12, 2017

Let me be a holy sacrifice 
and unite with God in the sacrament of His greatest love. 
I want to be one in Him in this act of love, 
where He gives Himself to me and I give myself as a sacrifice to Him. 
Let me be a holy sacrifice as I become one with Him 
in this my act of greatest love to Him.

Majestic Queen of Heaven and Mistress of the Angels, 
you received from God the power 
and commission to crush the head of Satan. 
We humbly beseech You, 
send forth the legions of heaven, 
that, under Your command, 
they may seek out all evil spirits, 
engage them everywhere in battle, 
curb their insolence, 
and hurl them back into the pit of hell. 

O good and tender Mother, 
You shall be our hope 
and the object of our love. 

O Mother of God, 
send forth the holy Angels to defend me 
and drive far from me the cruel foe.
