PRAYER TO GOD THE FATHER
O Holy Lord, Almighty Father, and most merciful God, before all time thou didst beget the Son, coequal, coeternal, and consubstantial with thyself, and the Holy Spirit proceeding from thee and Him. Thou didst create the heavens and the earth, the sea and all things that have life in them, visible and invisible. I praise thee, I adore thee, I glorify thee. Look lovingly upon me, a most wretched sinner. Despise not the work of thy hands. Through thy unspeakable goodness save me, and for thy holy name’s sake aid me. Through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
PRAYER TO GOD THE SON
O Lord Jesus Christ, Son of the living God, God omnipotent and merciful, splendour and image of the Father; Life everlasting, who art one in substance with the eternal Father and the Holy Ghost; equal in honour, in glory, and in coeternal majesty; thee I praise, thee I adore, thee I glorify. Suffer me not, I beseech thee, to perish; come to my aid, save me. Help me whom thou hast redeemed by thy blood with the grace thou bestowest of thy own free gift; who with the coeternal God, the Father and the Holy Spirit, livest and reignest, world without end. Amen.
PRAYER TO GOD THE HOLY GHOST
O Holy Spirit, omnipotent Lord and merciful God, coequal, coeternal, and of the same substance with the Father and the Son, who proceedest in an ineffable manner from them, who didst come down on our Lord Jesus under the form of a dove, and in the holy Apostles in tongues of fire; thee I praise, thee I adore, thee I glorify. Dispel from me, I beseech thee, all darkness of iniquity, ingratitude, and negligence. Light up within me the hope of thy mercy, and enkindle the flames of thy holy fear and most winning love. Who with the coeternal Father and His Son, our Lord, livest and reignest, one God, world without end. Amen.
