MORNING PRAYER – FORM TWO
( + ) In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost. Amen.
Blessed be the Holy Trinity, one God, now and forever. Amen.
Glory to the Father, who created me; glory to the Son, Who redeemed me; glory to the Holy Ghost, Who sanctifieth me.
Almighty and eternal God, I adore Thee, and I thank Thee for all the benefits which Thou, in Thy infinite goodness and mercy, hast conferred upon me. I thank Thee especially for having preserved and protected me this night.
I believe in Thee, because Thou art truth itself, and, as Thou hast revealed them to her, I believe all the sacred truths which the Holy Catholic Church believes and teaches.
I hope in Thee, because Thou art omnipotent, most merciful, and faithful to Thy promises; I hope to obtain the pardon of my sins, the grace to live a holy life, to die a happy death, and to obtain life everlasting, through the merits of Jesus Christ, my Lord and Redeemer.
I love Thee with my whole heart, and above all things, because Thou art infinitely good; and for the love of Thee I love my neighbor as myself.
I beseech Thee most earnestly to bless me, that I may serve Thee faithfully this day by a perfect devotedness to all my duties and a steadfast adherence to all my promises and good resolutions.
I am truly sorry for having sinned because Thou art infinitely good and because sin displeases Thee. I will avoid the occasions of sin and strive in all things to do Thy holy will.
I wish to consecrate this day, and all the days of my life, to Thy honor and glory.
I offer Thee all my prayers, works, and sufferings in union with the Sacred Heart of Jesus, for the intentions for which He pleads and offers Himself in the holy sacrifice of the Mass, in thanksgiving for Thy favors, in reparation for my offenses, and in humble supplication for my temporal and eternal welfare, for the wants of holy Mother the Church, for the conversion of sinners, and for the relief of the poor souls in purgatory.
O sweetest heart of Jesus! I implore,
That I may ever love Thee more and more.
Jesus, meek and humble of heart, make my heart like unto Thine.
Sweet Heart of Jesus, be my love!
Sweet Heart of Mary, be my salvation!
O Mary! my Queen! my Mother! I give myself entirely to thee; and to show my devotion to thee, I consecrate to thee this day my eyes, my ears, my mouth, my heart, my whole being, without reserve. Wherefore, good mother, as I am thine own, keep me, guard me, as thy property and possession.
St. Joseph, model and patron of those who love the Sacred Heart of Jesus, pray for us!
Angel of God, my guardian dear, to whom His love commits me here, ever this day be at my side, to light and guard, to rule and guide. Amen.
All ye holy angels and saints of God, and especially you, my dear patron saint, pray for me!
