LOOK DOWN UPON ME, GOOD AND GENTLE JESUS

Look down upon me,
good and gentle Jesus,
while before Your face I humbly kneel,
and with burning soul pray and beseech You
to fix deep in my heart
lively sentiments of faith, hope and charity,
true contrition for my sins,
and a firm purpose of amendment,
while I contemplate with great love and tender pity
Your five wounds,
pondering over them within me,
calling to mind the words that David, Your Prophet,
said of You, my good Jesus:
“They have pierced My hands and My feet;
they have numbered all My bones” (Psalm 22:17-18).

NOVENA PRAYER TO JESUS

(To be said for nine successive days)

Jesus,
I believe that by Your own power
You rose from death as You promised,
a glorious Victor.
May this Mystery strengthen my hope
in another and better life after death,
the resurrection of my body on the last day,
and an eternity of happiness.
I firmly hope that You will keep Your promise to me
and raise me up glorified.
Through Your glorious Resurrection
I hope that You will make my body
like Your own in glory and life,
and permit me to dwell with You
in Heaven for all eternity.
I believe that Your Resurrection is the crown
of Your life and work as God-Man,
because it is Your glorification.
This is the beginning of the glorious life
that was due to You as the Son of God.
Your Resurrection is also the reward
of Your life and suffering.
Jesus, my Risen Lord and King,
I adore Your Sacred Humanity,
which receives this eternal Kingdom
of honour, power, joy, and glory.
I rejoice with You, my Master,
glorious, immortal and all-powerful.
Through the glorious Mystery
of Your Resurrection,
I ask You to help me rise with You spiritually
and to live a life free from sin,
so that I may be bent upon doing God’s Will
in all things,
and may be patient in suffering.
Through the Sacraments
may my soul be enriched evermore
with sanctifying grace,
the source of Divine Life.
I also ask that You grant me
this special request: (mention your request).
May Your Will be done.
Amen.

 

DIVINE MERCY APOSTLE’S PRAYER OF TRUST

Merciful Jesus, I believe in You and I trust in You, come to the aid of my weakness and my incapacity. Grant that I may be able to make You known and loved by all and, confident of the immensity of Your love, I may be able to combat the evil which is in me and in all the world for Your glory and my salvation.
Amen.

 

PRAYER OF TRUST IN THE LORD’S MERCY TO FORGIVE SIN

O Lord, behold here before You a soul who exists in this world in order to allow You to exercise Your admirable mercy, and manifest it before heaven and earth. Others may glorify You through their faithfulness and perseverance, thus making evident the power of Your grace.
How sweet and generous You are to those who are faithful to You! Nevertheless I will glorify You by acquainting others of Your goodness to sinners and reminding them that Your mercy is above all malice, that nothing can exhaust it, and that no relapse, no matter how shameful or criminal, should allow the sinner to despair of forgiveness.
I have offended You grievously, O beloved Redeemer, but it would be still worse if I were to offend You by thinking that You were lacking in goodness to forgive me. I would rather He deprive me of everything else than the trust I have in Your mercy.
Should I fall a hundred times, or should my crimes be a hundred times worse than they actually are, I would continue to trust in Your mercy.
Amen.
– St Claude De Columbiere

 

A PRAYER TO THE SACRED HEART OF JESUS

Sacred Heart of Jesus,
how precious is your love for us.
Keep on loving those who know you,
and hide us in the shadow of your cross
as we seek your mercy and your help
in time of need.
You live and reign, now and forever.
Amen.

 

MY LORD AND SAVIOUR, IN YOUR ARMS I AM SAFE

My Lord and Saviour, in your arms I am safe; keep me and I have nothing to fear; give me up and I have nothing to hope for. I pray you not to make me rich, I pray you not to make me very poor; but I leave it all to you, because you know and I do not. If you bring pain or sorrow on me, give me grace to bear it well. If you give me health and strength and success in this world, keep me ever on my guard lest these great gifts carry me away from you. Give me ever to aim at setting forth your glory; to live to and for you; to set a good example to all around me; give me to die just at that time and in that way which is most for your glory, and best for my salvation.
– Bl. John Henry Newman

 

A PRAYER TO THE HOLY SPIRIT, THE FOUNT OF LOVE

My God, I adore you, as the Third Person of the Ever-Blessed Trinity. You are that Living Love, wherewith the Father and the Son love each other. And you are the Author of supernatural love in our hearts. Increase in me this grace of love, in spite of all my unworthiness. It is more precious than anything else in the world. I accept it in place of all the world can give me. It is my life. Amen.
Bl. John Henry Newman
