Loving to Pray and Praying to Love part 3

St. Faustins’s Prayer For Priests

O My Jesus,
I beg You on behalf of the whole Church:
Grant it love and the light of Your Spirit,
Give power to the words of priests
So that hardened hearts
Might be brought to repentance
And return to you.
Lord, give us holy priests;
You yourself maintain them in holiness.
O Divine and Great High Priest
May the power of Your mercy
Accompany them everywhere and protect them
From the devil’s traps and snares which are
Continually being set for the souls of priests,
May the power of Your mercy,
O Lord, shatter and bring to naught
All that might tarnish the sanctity of priests,
For You can do all things.

A Third Century Prayer To Mary

We fly to your patronage O Holy Mother of God, despise not our prayers in our necessities, but ever deliver us from all dangers, O Glorious and Blessed Virgin. AMEN.

This is a prayer to obtain the Grace of all the world’s Masses

Eternal Father we humble offer Thee our poor presence and that of the whole of humanity, from the beginning to the end of the world, at all the Masses that ever have or ever will be prayed. We offer Thee all the pains, sufferings, prayers, sacrifices, joys and relaxations of our lives, in union with those of our dear Lord Jesus here on earth. May the Most Precious Blood of Christ, all His Blood and Wounds and Agony save us, through the sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary. AMEN

Personal Prayers

Jesus I adore You; You are my joy and consolation;
You are my heart’s desire and the glory of my soul.
I praise You with all the love that is within my heart.
Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit.

Dear Lord,
Grant me the love to desire Your will,
The faith to seek Your will,
The wisdom to know Your will,
The humility to accept Your will,
The courage to continue in Your will,
And the strength to complete Your will.
In Jesus name Amen.

An Act of Consecration

O Lord Jesus, You are my light and my life!
All of the love which burns within my heart,
Comes from You, is part of You, and is returned to You.
All that I am I give to You, because all that I am You have made.
My heart, my mind and my soul, are Yours to govern and possess.
By Your grace I have my being, and by Your grace
I am able to love and serve You.
Take this heart of mine, and make it Your own.
I consecrate it fully to Your service.
Let there be no conditions to my love,
No end to my devotion,
No limit to my sacrifice.
Let me live and die for love of You.

Prayer for graces

Lord, grant me the grace
To serve You with all of my strength,
To contemplate You with all of my mind,
To love You with all of my heart,
And to offer You my whole life
As a living sacrifice.

      Thank you Jane. You are truly blessed, our world so needs good souls like yourself who will pray for our world, especially the Rosary. St Padre Pio called it “the weapon” and he knew its power. May God bless you for your service to Him
