Lord, 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 long for you as my last end,

I praise you as my constant helper,

I call on you as my loving protector.


Guide me by your wisdom,

Correct me with your justice,

Comfort me with your mercy,

Protect me with your power.


I offer you, Lord, my thoughts: to be fixed on you;

My words to have you as their theme;

My action to reflect my love for you;

My sufferings: to be endured for your greater Glory.


I want to do what you ask of me:

In the way you ask,

 For as long as you ask,

Because you ask it.


Lord enlighten my understanding,

Strengthen my will,

Purify my heart.

And make me holy.


Help me to repent of my past sins

And resist temptation in the future.

Help me 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 really am:

 A pilgrim in this world,

A Christian called to respect and love

All whose lives I touch,

Those under my authority,

My friends and enermies.


Help me to conquer anger with gentleness,*

Greed by generosity,

 Apathy by favour.

Help me to forget myself

And reach out toward others.


Make me prudent in planning,*

 Courageous in taking risk.

Make me patient in suffering,

Unassuming in prosperity.


Keep me Lord, attentive at prayer,*

Temperate in food and drink,

Diligent in my work,

Firm in my good intentions.


Let my conscience be clear,

My conduct without fault,

My speech blameless,*

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,

And life to come is 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.


thanks'll always have that special part in my heart  ;)
