Daily Prayer - Illuminate Me

My Jesus, I place all my sins before you. 
In my estimation they do not deserve pardon, 
but I ask you to close your eyes 
to my want of merit
and open them to your infinite merit. 

Since you willed to die for my sins,
grant me forgiveness for all of them. 
May no longer feel the burden of my sins, 
a burden that oppresses me beyond measure. 

Assist me, dear Jesus, 
for I desire to become good
no matter what the cost.
Take away, destroy, and root out
whatever you find in me
that is contrary to your holy will. 
At the same time, dear Jesus, illuminate me 
so that I may walk in your holy light.
