Acts of Prayers

Acts of prayer – 1

Jesus, my God, I adore You,
here present in the Blessed Sacrament of the altar,
where You wait day and night to be our comfort
while we await Your unveiled presence in heaven.
Jesus, my God,
I adore You in all places
where the Blessed Sacrament is reserved
and where sins are committed
against this Sacrament of Love.
Jesus, my God,
I adore You for all time,
past, present and future,
for every soul that ever was,
is or shall be created.
Jesus, my God,
who for us has endured hunger and cold,
labour and fatigue,
I adore You.
Jesus, my God, who for my sake
has deigned to subject Yourself
to the humiliation of temptation,
to the perfidy and defection of friends,
to the scorn of Your enemies,
I adore You.
Jesus, my God, who for us has endured
the buffeting of Your passion,
the scourging, the crowning with thorns,
the heavy weight of the cross,
I adore You.
Jesus, my God, who,
for my salvation and that of all mankind,
was cruelly nailed to the cross
and hung there for three long hours in bitter agony, I adore You.
Jesus, My God,
who for love of us
did institute this Blessed Sacrament
and offer Yourself daily for the sins of men,
I adore You.
Jesus, my God,
who in Holy Communion became the food of my soul,
I adore You.
Jesus, for You I live.
Jesus, for You I die.
Jesus, I am Yours in life and death.
Amen.

Acts of prayer – 2

Lord, as I spend today going about my work,
help me to put aside any bitterness
that I’m not celebrating at home with loved ones.
I ask you, Loving Father,
to give me a special sense of your presence as I meet people,
that I may shed on them the light of the Bethlehem Star,
the Spirit of Christmas.
Amen.

Acts of prayer – 3

Sacred Heart of Jesus,
filled with infinite love,
broken by my ingratitude,
pierced by my sins,
yet loving me still,
accept the consecration that I make to You,
of all that I am and all that I have.
Take every faculty of my soul and body,
and draw me, day by day,
nearer and nearer to Your Sacred Side,
and there, as I can bear the lesson,
teach me Your blessed ways.
Amen.

Acts of prayer – 4

Merciful Father
I am guilty of sin
I confess my sins before you
and I am sorry for them.
Your promises are just;
therefore I trust that you will forgive my sins
and cleanse me from every stain of sin.
Jesus himself is the propitiation
for my sins and the sin of the whole world.
I put my hope in his atonement.
May my sins be forgiven through His name
and in His blood may my soul be made clean.
Amen.

Acts of prayer – 5

I adore Thee O God,
I count myself as nothing before Thy Divine Majesty.
Thou alone art Being, Life, Truth, Beauty and Goodness.
I glorify Thee,
I praise Thee,
I give Thee thanks and I love Thee,
all helpless and unworthy as I am,
in union with Thy dear Son, Jesus Christ,
our Saviour and our Brother,
in the merciful kindness of His Heart
and through His infinite merits.
I desire to serve Thee,
to please Thee,
to obey Thee and to love Thee always,
in union with Mary Immaculate,
Mother of God and our Mother,
loving also and serving my neighbour for the love of Thee.

Wherefore give me Thy Holy Spirit,
to enlighten me,
to correct me
and to guide me in the way of Thy commandments
and in all perfection,
the while I look for the happiness of heaven,
where we shall glorify Thee for ever and ever.
Amen.

Acts of prayer – 6

My Lord Jesus Christ,
true God and true Man,
I adore Thee with every fibre of my being!
I adore Thee at every instant of time.
I adore Thee in union with the Immaculate Heart
of our Blessed Mother, Mary,
in union with the pure Heart Of St. Joseph,
in union with all Thy Angels and Saints
in the Glory Of Heaven,
in union with Thy just on earth,
in union with the souls in purgatory.
With this tribute of adoration
I wish to adore Thee for all who do not adore Thee,
to love Thee for all who love Thee not,
to acknowledge Thee to be my God,
for all who refuse to acknowledge Thee.
Amen.

and with hearts overflowing
we thank Thee that Thou hast given us
Thy Divine Son Jesus to be our Redeemer,

in the most august Eucharist

revealing unto us the wondrous love of His Heart

O Word of God,
dear Jesus our Redeemer,
we adore Thee and with hearts over-flowing
we thank Thee for having taken human flesh upon Thee
and become for our redemption both Priest and Victim
in the sacrifice of the Cross,
a sacrifice which,
through the exceeding love of Thy Sacred Heart,
Thou dost renew upon our altars at every moment.
O High Priest,
O Divine Victim,
give us the grace to honour Thy holy sacrifice
in the most adorable Eucharist
with the homage of Mary most holy
and of all Thy holy Church,
triumphant, suffering and militant.
We offer ourselves wholly to Thee;
of Thine infinite goodness and mercy
do Thou accept our offering,
unite it to Thine own
and grant us Thy blessing.

Glory be to the Father,
and to the Son,
and to the Holy Ghost.
As it was in the beginning,
is now,
and ever shall be,
world without end.
Amen.

O Divine Spirit the Paraclete,
we adore Thee and with hearts overflowing
we give Thee thanks that Thou hast,
with such great love for us,
wrought the ineffable blessing
of the Incarnation of the Word of God,
a blessing which is being continually extended
and enlarged in the most august Sacrament of the Eucharist.
Ah, by this adorable mystery of the love of the Sacred Heart of Jesus,
do Thou grant unto us and all poor sinners Thy holy grace.
Pour forth Thy holy gifts upon us
and upon all redeemed souls,
and in an especial manner upon the visible Head of the Church,
the supreme Roman Pontiff,
upon all Cardinals,
Bishops and Pastors of souls,
upon priests and all other ministers of Thy sanctuary.
Amen.

Glory be to the Father,
and to the Son,
and to the Holy Ghost.
As it was in the beginning,
is now,
and ever shall be,
world without end.
Amen.
