Prayer to Break Soul Ties
God, Almighty and merciful Father, in the name of Jesus Christ, my Savior and my Lord, I submit my soul, my emotions and my desires to your Holy Spirit.
I confess the sin of immorality, of illicit sexual relations prior to and outside of marriage (of adultery, sexual deviances : homosexuality, lesbianism, etc.)
I confess the sin of iniquitous ties in my spirit, my soul and my body. I thank you for forgiving me and for purifying me now of everything that has sullied me.
God, my Father, thank you for having given me, through Jesus, the keys to your Kingdom and the keys of spiritual authority. What I bind is bound and what I loose is loosened (Mt. 18, 18). In the name of Jesus, I ask you to free me from all the soul ties contracted with sexual partners of the past, my sinful relationships, my perverse sexual practices, eroticism and pornography.
Please bind all roots of sexual slavery, of dependencies, emotional attachments, degrading thoughts, of troubling images, fantasies, erotic dreams, emotional desires, of passionate sensations and revelling that have weakened my character and my will.
Heal my memory polluted by my illicit sexual practice. Liberate me from any transference of spirits linked to my acts, to psychological trauma from my past, or from any occult consecration to so-called protective spirits. In the name of Jesus, I bind every impure spirit, I renounce and resist every temptation, every evil spirit, every seductive spirit that has intensified these ties or transmitted them to me to keep me in sin. I take authority over these spirits and I order them away in the name of Jesus. I command them to go to the Cross of Jesus, and I forbid them from coming back to torment me. I break every tie, every evil emotional desire and all sexual slavery.
Please Lord, purify my soul and help me to break and to forget any illicit union, so that I may surrender my body and my soul completely to You and to my legitimate spouse. I immerse myself in the precious Blood of Jesus. Through His redemption on the cross and by the power of the Holy Spirit, I re-establish around myself, the hedge of spiritual protection that I myself destroyed by yielding to the snare of compromise, of unfaithfulness, and of false sexual freedom.
All-loving God the Father, I receive Your pardon for all my past sexual sins. I believe that I am completely forgiven. Thank you Father, for no longer remembering my sin. Thank you for purifying me of every iniquity and for filling me with Your Holy Spirit. I consecrate myself entirely to You. By your grace, fortify my will and my decision to change my life. Restore me, liberate me, and keep me holy in my spirit, my soul and my body, for I want to serve you with all my heart in the fullness of the Holy Spirit. Holy Mary, Mother of God, Immaculate Virgin, pray for me and keep me. I praise you Lord, my Savior and my Liberator, You who have healed me and given me life anew. (Is.38,16-17). * Amen! Alleluia!
After this prayer of liberation, pray to be filled with the Holy Spirit so that with His strength, you may firmly resist the evil one, that you may guard your body( which is His temple), and your thoughts.
For the Souls in Purgatory
Eternal Father, I offer You the Body and Blood the Soul and Divinity of Your Dearly Beloved Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, in union with all the masses being said this day throughout the world, for all the poor souls in purgatory, for sinners everywhere, for sinners in the universal church, those in my own home and within my family.
St Gertrude … pray for us.
I ask all the Angels and Saints in Heaven to join me in praying for the poor souls in purgatory. I pray for all souls; the ones at the doorstep of heaven to the most abandoned souls in purgatory. I pray for all nuns, deacons, priests, bishops, cardinals and popes and all the clergy who may be trapped there.
I pray for those souls related all the people I have met and to myself, by blood, marriage, friendship and knowledge especially I pray for …
I repent and ask forgiveness in all areas of their sinfulness. On their behalf I ask forgiveness and repent for the sins that are making them suffer the most. I ask pardon for all sins of pride, unforgiveness, greed, anger, revenge, jealousy, envy and heresy, all sexual sins, all sins committed with their eyes, their mouths, their hands, their hearts and their minds.
I ask You Heavenly Father, to open the Gates of Heaven and flood all of purgatory with Your Ocean of Mercy, to cleanse, liberate and purify these poor souls. In your Mercy, erase all pain due to their sins.
Jesus and Mary surround each soul with Your Holy Love… comfort them and console them, fill them with hope, courage, perseverance, joy and peace…
Heavenly Father, in Your Great Mercy, unchain the poor souls in purgatory and draw them into the Light of Eternal Rest.
On their behalf, I thank You and Praise You for what You are going to do and may Your Will be done. Amen!
Prayer to obtain a healing of our cells
Excellent way to adore The Word made Flesh.
I ask my sick cells ( specify back, eyes, joints, cancer etc…)
to join the same sick cells of my brothers and sisters throughout the whole world.
I ask that they go before me, that they kneel and prostrate themselves before the same cells of Jesus, to adore and contemplate His Perfect Flesh, His Immaculate Flesh, The Word made Flesh.
May His Light and healing transform our sick cells

Prayer to the Holy Spirit
Come Holy Spirit, Enlighten my heart to see the things that are of God.
Come Holy Spirit, into my mind, that I may know the things that are of God.
Come Holy Spirit, into my soul that I belong only to God.
Sanctify all that I think, say, and do, that all will be for the Glory of God.
Act Of Contrition
Forgive me my sins, O Jesus, forgive me my sins.
All the sins I have in my heart. My big sins and my little sins,
The sins I know and the sins I have forgotten.
If I have been disobedient or disrespectful
to my parents or teachers, I am sorry.
If I have offended you by ignoring You, by swearing, by cheating,
or by lying, I am sorry. If I have been jealous, envious or hurtful
towards others, I am sorry.
If I have not forgiven someone I need to forgive,
I am sorry. Help me to be a better person.
I know that my sins have wounded Your Tender Heart,
My Jesus, I need Your Forgiveness,
Your Mercy, Your Love and Your Peace.
I thank You for Your Mercy and I love You.
Complete Trust in God
Do not look forward to the trials and crosses of this life with dread and fear.
Rather, look to them with full confidence that, as they arise, God, to whom you belong, will deliver you from them. He has guided and guarded you thus far
in life. Hold fast to His Dear Hand, and He will lead you safely through all trials.
Whenever you cannot stand, He will carry you lovingly in His arms.
Do not look forward to what may happen tomorrow. The same Eternal Father Who
cares for you today will take care of you tomorrow and every day of your life.
Either He will shield you from suffering or He will give you the unfailing strength to bear it. Be at peace then and put aside all useless thoughts, vain dreads, and anxious imaginations. Trust in God and He will give you peace.
(St. Francis de Sales)

Prayer for addicts
God, my Almighty Creator! You have created me out of love. You have given me life and talents so that I can serve You with them in my brothers in mankind. You have given me the gift of freedom and love. I thank You! Today, I come to You, my Father, through Your Son Jesus, in my name and in the name of all, who have lost the freedom and capacity to love You and the others. I turn to You from my enslavement, in which I have fallen because of drugs. It has taken over my heart, my thoughts and my feelings; it has made me unable to think right and to make the right decisions. It has
mislead me into evil, into sin, into stealing and into violence. It has
distanced me from You and the others. But I know that You are waiting for me and that You are happy about my return, like the merciful father, who was happy about the return of his lost son.
Send me Your Holy Spirit, so that He prays within me and frees me and gives me the gifts of devotion, strength, wisdom, understanding and love.
Mary, my Mother, I thank You because You were also near me when I was not close to You or my physical mother, and because You will help me to free myself completely and return to the home of my Father.
God has created me to do Him some definite service; He has committed some work to me which He has not committed to another. I have a mission.. I may never know it in this life, but I shall be told it in the next.
I am a link in a chain, a bond of connection between persons. He has not created me for nothing. I shall do good, I shall do His work.
Therefore I will trust Him. Whatever, wherever I am. I cannot be thrown away. If I am in sickness, my sickness may serve Him; in perplexity, my perplexity may serve Him; if I am in sorrow, my sorrow may serve Him. He does nothing in vain. He knows what He is about. He may take away my friends, He may throw me among strangers, He may make me feel desolate, make my spirits sink, hide my future from me.. still He knows what He is about.
Consecrate Your Heart to Mary
I, (name), a faithless sinner/ renew and ratify today/ in thy hands/ O Immaculate Mother/ the vows of my Baptism. I renounce forever Satan/ his pomps and works/ and give myself entirely to Jesus Christ/ the Incarnate Wisdom/ To carry my cross after Him all the days of my life/ and to be more faithful to Him/ than I have ever been before./ In the presence of all the Heavenly Court/ I choose Thee this day/ for My Mother and Mistress/ I deliver and consecrate to thee/ as thy slave/ my body and soul/ my goods both interior and exterior/ and even the value of all my good actions/ past, present and future/ leaving to thee the entire and full right/ of disposing of me/ and all that belongs to me/ without exception/ according to thy good pleasure/ for the greater Glory of God/ in time and in eternity.

By the power of the Holy Spirit, reveal to me, Father, any people I need to forgive and any areas of unconfessed sin.

I give to You all ways that Satan has a hold of my life. Thank You, Father for these revelations. Thank You for Your forgiveness and Your love.
Lord Jesus, in Your Holy Name I bind all evil spirits of the air, water, ground, underground and netherworld.

(Pause and wait for words to come to you, such as anger, arrogance, bitterness, brutality, confusion, cruelty, deception, depression, envy, fear, hatred, insecurity, jealousy, pride, resentment, or terror.)
Pray the following for each of the evil spirits revealed:

Prayer for Healing of the Family Tree
Heavenly Father, I come before You as your child, in great need of your help; I have physical health needs, emotional needs, spiritual needs, and interpersonal needs. Many of my problems have been caused by my own failures, neglect and sinfulness, for which I humbly beg your forgiveness, Lord. But I also ask you to forgive the sins of my ancestors whose failures have left their effects on me in form of unwanted tendencies, behavior patterns and defects in body, mind and spirit. Heal me, Lord, of all these disorders. With your help I sincerely forgive everyone, especially living or dead of my family tree, who have directly offended me or my loved ones in any way, or whose sins have resulted in our present sufferings and disorders. Father, deliver me and my entire family tree from the influence of the evil one. Free all living and dead members of my family tree, including those in adoptive relationships, and those in extended family relationships, from every contaminating form of bondage. By your loving concern for us, Heavenly Father, and by the shed blood of your Precious Son, Jesus, I beg you to extend your blessing to me and all my living and deceased relatives. Heal every negative effect transmitted through all past generations, and prevent such negative effects in future generations of my family tree. I symbolically place the cross of Jesus over of the head of each person in my family tree, and between each generation; I ask you to let the cleansing blood of Jesus purify the blood lines in my family lineage. Set your protective angels to encamp around us, and permit Archangel Raphael, the patron of healing, to administer your divine healing power to all of us, even in areas of genetic disability. Give special power to our family members' guardian angels to heal, protect and guide and let it continue as long as your sovereignty permits. In our family tree, Lord, replace all bondage with a holy bonding in family love. And let there be an ever deeper bonding with you, Lord, by the Holy Spirit, to your Son, Jesus. Let the family of the Holy Trinity pervade our family with its tender, warm, loving presence, so that our family may recognize and manifest that love in all our relationships. All of our unknown needs we include with this petition that we pray in Jesus' Precious Name. Amen

Lord Jesus Christ, I ask for the grace today to forgive everyone in my life. I know that You will give me strength to forgive. I let go of all resentment towards You because of hardships, death and sickness in the family. I surrender to You today in faith and trust; You love me more than I love myself. Jesus, You are Lord of my life. Please, come into my heart in a deeper way and remove anything that would block the flow of Your Love. Please, give me the grace to rest in Your arms and allow myself to be loved by You.
Lord, because You have forgiven me, I can forgive MYSELF for sins, faults and failings. For all that is truly bad in myself or all that I think is bad, I do forgive myself. For any delving into the occult, ouija boards, horoscopes, seances, fortune telling or using lucky charms; for any calling upon sources of power apart from you; for taking Your name in vain; for not worshipping You; for hurting my parents; for getting drunk or using drugs; for sins against purity; for adultery; for abortion; for stealing or lying; I truly forgive myself today. I let go of all self-directed negativity. I release the things held against myself and make peace with myself today.
I now stand before You as an intercessor and extend forgiveness to my ANCESTORS for acts of negativity and unlove. I come before You, Lord, on behalf of everyone in my family tree and apologize for any sinful actions. Let forgiveness flow through my family tree. Let the wounds of the past be healed through my act of forgiveness today. Thank you. Lord.
I forgive my MOTHER, Lord. I forgive her for times she may have hurt me, resented me or punished me unfairly. I forgive her for preferring my brothers and sisters; I forgive her for telling me I was dumb, ugly, stupid, the worst of the children, or that I cost the family a lot of money. I forgive her for rejecting me, abandoning me, or attempting to abort me. I forgive her for telling me I was unwanted, an accident or a mistake. I forgive her for any lack of nurturing, lack of hugs and kisses. For any ways she did not provide a deep, satisfying mother´s blessing I truly forgive her today. I pray for her today and ask God´s blessing upon her.

Hour of Adoration Holy Hour
Dear Jesus, I love You
I believe that you are truly in the Blessed Sacrament
Right here before my very eyes
How I love you!
Here You welcome me with open arms,
With grace and peace, You greet me.
Offer all my prayers to the Father
Intercede on my behalf.
Plead for every petition that is in my heart.
Give me the grace to become truly holy.
Teach me always to do the Father’s will,
Seeking first the kingdom of God and His Holy way.
My God, I am sorry for my sins with all my heart. In choosing to do wrong and failing to do good, I have sinned against you whom I should love above all things. I firmly intend, with your help, to do penance, to sin no more, and to avoid whatever leads me to sin. Our Savior Jesus Christ suffered and died for us. In his name, my God, have mercy on me.
Let me be cleansed by the Blood and Water flowing from Your Sacred Heart.
Pierce my heart, Jesus, with a humble and contrite spirit and a strong sense of right and wrong, that I may rather die than sin, so that I may never betray You again.
Most Sacred Heart, help me to pray, to fast and to make reparation in atonement for my past sins.
All Glory, Honor and Praise be to You, Jesus,
For remaining in the Blessed Sacrament, for coming to us in such a simple way, so that we can see You, speak with You and adore You.
I love You my Jesus.
I bring to you my family, my parents,
my siblings, my spouse, my children, my grandchildren,
my extended family, my whole family tree and all those I love.
I place each one into your Most Sacred Heart.
I consecrate them to God the Father, to the Immaculate Heart of Mary,
and to You, My Dearest Jesus.
I implore You to bless them,
I implore You to heal them,
I implore You to enkindle in each of their hearts…
the desire to be close to You…the knowledge of how much You love them.
Teach them, Jesus, of your love!
Inflame their hearts with your own love!
Do not allow one of them to escape from You!
Eucharistic Blood of Jesus,
cleanse me from all that is not holy.
Water from the side of Jesus,
wash me from all false idols.
Passion of Christ, strengthen me.
I pray now for those who are sick and suffering
with all types of illnesses…especially those in pain,
I pray for all in hospitals, nursing homes and care homes,
I pray for those who are dying at this very minute.
Jesus, be with them, have mercy on them!
Heal their pain; replace it with Your Presence.
Give them courage and perseverance,
give them Your strength,
give them the grace to do Your Holy Will!
Dear Jesus, may Your Spirit take me
Into the wound of Love,
Your Most Sacred Heart,
Where I find security and rest in a heavenly taste
Of my eternal home with You, forever.
I pray for new vocations to the priesthood and to religious life.
Jesus, instill in the hearts of many young men the desire to serve You.
Help them see you clearly, keep their souls clean,
Do not allow corruption to enter into their hearts.
I pray for all vocations, for single people and for married couples, that You, Jesus will be at the center of their lives and that they will trust in You, that parents will raise their children according to Your Holy Word.
I pray for all unbaptized babies, I desire the Sacrament of Baptism for each of them. Transform their parents’ indifference into a burning quest for sanctity, giving them a new heart and renewing Your Holy Spirit within them.
Worthy are You, Jesus,
To receive the adoration of all mankind,
in the Blessed Sacrament.
You are My Lord and my God and my Savior!
I love You my Sweet Jesus!
Bless our Pope, John Paul 11… Protect him and guide him.
Bless all our cardinals, bishops and priests.
Bless all who are thinking of religious vocations.
Bless all religious sisters and all missionaries.
Jesus, I know how difficult it is for these servants.
Jesus, give them the courage they need to carry on.
Make them holy Lord so that they will teach your truth
And lead us in Your Holy Way!
Radiating in the Eucharist, Jesus,
Pour out Your abundant graces upon all mankind.
Let Your Divine Sweetness flow for all who come into the light of Your Presence.
Coming before You, Jesus,
I pray for every member of our parish,
Especially those who are in most need of Your help.
Bless each one with a new outpouring of Your Love,
Goodness, mercy and grace.
I pray for all who are addicted to drugs, gambling, alcohol and pornography.
Jesus, remove that evil veil that is shading their minds.
Show them Your love,
Give them Your strength.
I pray for all the sinners of the world,
for all prisoners, for all those who do not know You!
Lord, have mercy on them.
I pray for the victims of violence,
for those who suffer abuse, emotional, physical and sexual.
Lord, heal their hearts, their minds and their bodies; let your mercy
flow abundantly upon these poor people and restore their self-respect,
re-establish their trust in You,
that they may fill their hearts with forgiveness.
Heal their feelings of bitterness and hopelessness
Comfort them with Your peace and Your love.
Deliver the world, Lord Jesus,
from the grips of Satan.
Cleanse in Your Precious Blood,
the sins of all humanity.
I pray that all abortions will stop.
Lord, have mercy on all those people involved in abortions.
Instill in their hearts a renewed respect and love for life;
especially the life of these poor innocent babies in the womb.
With confidence, I come to You, Jesus,
Offering all that I am and all that I have,
Along with the Immaculate Heart of Mary
To make up for what is lacking in my love for You.
Like the tender compassion of a mother
toward a child in great need,
Your Heart is powerfully attracted
to my very helplessness and wretchedness,
for You love me with a merciful love. I thank you Mary for the part You played in bringing Jesus into the world. All the honor is Yours Dearest Mother. Pray for me now and intercede before Your Son for all the petitions I bring here today.
Pray also for my family, pray for all of us especially when we need it the most.
Intercede also, Mary for all the intentions in the box at the altar of Jesus, here and in all the churches in the world. I trust in Your intercessions, Mother Mary, how can Jesus refuse the requests of His Mother. I thank You Blessed Mother, for all the graces that You bestow upon us.
How can we wipe away the tears in your eyes and the sorrows of Your Heart, but to pray? Help us, Mother Mary, to be more faithful to the Holy Rosary.
I pray for the poor, the hungry, the lonely, the shut-ins, I pray for those who are unemployed and those who have no homes. Lord, I bring all these people to You and I implore You to have mercy on them. Fill their emptiness with hope and peace. Let Your graces come down upon them so that they will feel Your Love.
Remind me in times of distress that all trials are only meant to keep me close to You.
Keep me close to You, Jesus,
I have no other place to go,
For in You alone I find my peace and my joy.
For You are my Lord, My God and My All.
I pray for the relief of souls in purgatory, especially those in my own family.
Lord, send one drop of your Precious Blood to each soul in purgatory.
Ease their suffering; send your holy angels to bring them consolation.
I offer each mass being said this day throughout the world in atonement for the relief of souls in purgatory, for the conversion of sinners everywhere, those in the universal church and those in my own home.
I pray for all the leaders of the world and for peace on earth.
Lord, have mercy on us, help those who are at war.
Heal the hate that grows in the hearts of all people.
Change this hate and violence to love and compassion for all.
Jesus, strip away everything in me
that is an obstacle to a perfect union with You,
that I may taste the goodness
of your love and grow to spiritual maturity.
I pray for all those who have forgotten about You, all those who do not go to church anymore, for all those who do not recognize You in the Holy Eucharist.
I pray for all those who have left Your flock.
Jesus, call them back, have mercy on them, teach them how to love You.
With Your Loving Heart, draw them back to You.
I pray in thanksgiving for all the graces that you have bestowed upon me.
For my loving family, my home and all my possessions, for my friends, my church and my neighborhood…. For all things in nature.
I thank You for all those You have sent to me, who have had a positive, spiritual effect on me, for all those I pray with regularly, for those who attend mass with me.
I thank You for Your Holy word in scripture, for the opportunity of receiving Your Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity into my very heart, in the Holy Eucharist.
And Jesus, I especially thank You for the time that I can spend with You right here, right now. To be able to talk to You as we are talking now.
Speak to me now, Jesus, open my heart so I can hear all the things You want to say to me. Speak to me in silent inspiration.
Let me come close to You, let me feel Your warmth and Your love like never before, that I may be overwhelmed by Your Presence.
I give You all my love and thanksgiving,
For in Your Gentle Heart, Jesus, all sinners can find
Forgiveness. You are an Ocean of Mercy.
Claim me once more as Your own, Jesus.
Prepare my heart for You have called me to walk in the marvelous light
of Your truth, and to proclaim the glorious works of Your love.
Praise be to You, Jesus
The Good Shepherd in the Blessed Sacrament,
Remain with me always.

To Your Gentle Heart, Sweet Jesus,

I offer You all my pains, my anxieties, my worries, my concerns
about myself, my family and the world, I place them at the foot of Your cross.
I ask You to pour Your Precious Blood upon them and to hide them in Your Precious Wounds. By Your wounds, we are healed.
Help me to trust You more.
Teach me to understand the value of suffering,
For suffering purifies the soul.
Give me the grace to follow in Your footsteps, and to walk in You.
I pray for all the good and faithful people of the world,
Who love You and adore You. Keep them in Your Sacred Heart,
Bless them and keep them safe. Give them the grace to persevere
in prayer. Give them the grace and the courage to evangelize, that others will see You in them. Shine Your Light upon them!
You draw me to Yourself
In the Blessed Sacrament today,
with strong spiritual bonds of indescribable personal affection,
Pouring out Your graces like rays of a million suns, bathing my soul with spiritual riches.
In Your Eucharistic love,
Restore me in hope,
Confirm me solid in faith,
Strengthen me in charity, and establish me in Your Holy Will, that I may live the gospel. Teach me to die to myself, that I may live more fully, in You, with You and for You. Help me to be absolutely obedient to You!
Help me, Jesus, to resist all temptations, from the world, the flesh and the devil. I am weak but You are strong.
With child-like confidence, I lean on You. I need You to be close to me.
I need to feel Your love.
Make my heart one with Yours,
That I may love others as You have loved me.
Give me, Jesus, that perfect love which casts out all fears.
Free my mind from all anxiety and fear … that with child-like trust I surrender myself to You completely, through the Immaculate Heart of Mary.
Lord, I offer You this hour of adoration and all acts of adoration and reparation made by souls who love everywhere in the world. I offer You, Your Son Jesus Christ, His Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity. Accept His pure Blood in reparation for all the outrages committed by mankind. Wipe out their sins and have mercy on them.
I love You, Jesus with all my heart.
Stay with me until I can be with You again in this special way.
Let me be your humble servant in whichever way You want.
Fill me with Your Holy Spirit that I may speak Your words. Let Your light shine through me to those who need it the most. I trust You, my Jesus!
Eternal Father, I thank You because Your infinite Love has saved me, even against my own will. Thank You, my Father, for Your immense patience, which has waited for me. Thank You, my God, for Your compassion, which has had pity on me. The only return I can make to you in payment for all that You have given me is my weakness, my pain and my misery.
I am before You, Spirit of Love, you who are an ever-burning fire, and I want to remain in Your adorable presence. I want to make reparation for my faults, renew myself in the fervor of my consecration, and render to You my homage of praise and adoration.
Blessed Jesus, I am before You and I want to draw from Your Divine Heart countless graces for me and for all souls, for the Holy Church, and for your priests and religious. Grant, Oh Jesus, that these hours be truly hours of intimacy, hours of love in which I will be granted to receive all the graces that Your Divine Heart has reserved for me.
Virgin Mary, Mother of God and my Mother, I unite myself to you, and beg of you to have me share in the feelings of Your Immaculate Heart.
My God, I believe, I adore, I hope and I love You. I ask pardon for those who do not believe, do not adore, do not hope and do not love You.
Most Holy Trinity, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, I adore You profoundly and I offer You the Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity of Jesus Christ, present in all the tabernacles of the world, in reparation for the outrages, sacrileges and indifferences whereby He is offended. And through the infinite merits of His Most Sacred Heart and the Immaculate Heart of Mary, I beg of You the conversion of poor sinners.
Act of Faith and Adoration
I believe, O Jesus, with my liveliest faith that You are present, here, in front of me, under the Eucharistic Species. You, the Eternal Word of the Father, are begotten from all eternity and incarnate in the womb of the Virgin Mother. Jesus Christ, Redeemer and King, I truly believe that You are present in the ineffable truth of Your Divinity and Your Humanity.
Jesus, You are the same Jesus of Bethlehem, the Divine Child, who for my sake will accept banishment, poverty and persecution. You are the Jesus of Nazareth, who for my love, embraced concealment, hardships and obedience. You are the Divine Teacher, who came to teach me the sweet truths of the Faith, to bring the great commandment of love: Your Commandment. You are the Merciful Savior, the One who bends over all my miseries with infinite understanding and moving kindness, always ready to forgive, to heal, to renew. You are the Holy Victim immolated for the glory of the Father and the good of all souls. You are the Jesus, who sweated blood for me in the Garden of Gethsemani; who suffered for me the condemnation of human tribunals, the most painful flagellation, the cruel and humiliating crowning of thorns, the cruel martyrdom of the crucifixion. You are He, who wanted to agonize and to die for me. You are the Risen Jesus, the vanquisher of death, of sin and of hell, who longs to communicate the treasures of Divine Life, which You possess in all its fullness.
My Jesus, You are here, present in the Consecrated Holy Host, with a Heart overflowing with tenderness, a Heart, which loves infinitely. In Your Heart, Jesus, I find the infinite Love, the Divine Charity - God, the beginning of Life - existent and alive. How sweet it is for me, My God, Trinity most blessed, to worship You in this Tabernacle where You are now!
Therefore, I join the angels and the saints, who invisible but present and vigilant around Your Tabernacle, adore You incessantly. I join, above all, Your most holy Mother, and her feelings of profound adoration and intense love, that sprang from her soul from the first instant of Your Incarnation, when she carried You in her immaculate womb.
And while I worship You in this Tabernacle, I do so in all the Tabernacles of the world and especially in those where You are most abandoned and forgotten. I adore you in each Consecrated Host that exists between Heaven and Earth.
I worship You, God the Father, because through Christ, You have descended to my humanity, and because through His adorable Heart, You have united Yourself so closely to man, to me, a poor ingrate creature. I adore You in this church sanctified by the ever current Presence of Your Divine Being. I prostrate myself in profound adoration before Your Sovereign Majesty. Yet, at the same time, love draws me up to You.
I worship You, God the Father, and I love You. My love and my adoration are totally mixed and combined in my soul, so much that I could not tell whether I love more than I adore or adore more than I love. I adore You because I find in You: all power, all holiness, justice and wisdom. You are My Creator and My God. I love You because I find in You all beauty, all kindness, all tenderness and all mercy. I love You because You have given me, as a present, an invaluable treasure.
Jesus is my Treasure. He is mine and at any moment I can draw graces from Him with full hands, since I find this Treasure always abundant. I take all I need from Him, in order to pay my debts, to meet my needs, to find delight, to earn a crown. What ineffable gift is this Jesus, whose Heart overflows with all tenderness! A treasure, which is never depleted, the more I take, the more He gives.
O God the Father, You have loved your creatures so much, that You gave them Your only Son. In order that the majesty of Your Word would instill us with awe and our souls could address Him with confidence, You clothed Him with flesh like ours. You adorned Him with the most attractive graces. Above all, You gave Him an infinitely perfect Heart, such, that It had to be the abode of Your delights, because in this Heart lives Your Divine Fullness, and in It the most humble of creatures has a place of privilege.
That adored Heart is as immense as Yourself, My God, because It contains You. It is also my dwelling place, since It loves me. In It I meet Your Divinity, and upon seeing me in this sacred refuge, Your just wrath is placated and Your Justice is disarmed.
I adore You, God the Father, through Jesus and in Jesus. I worship Jesus, Your Son, who by His Humanity is My Brother and by His Divinity is My God. I love You through Jesus and with Jesus. I love You through the Heart of Jesus, made mine by love. I love You in Jesus. Through Him my love reaches You. Through Him I can reach You and embrace You.

Lord, in the recitation of the Gloria at Holy Mass, the Church invites me to give You thanks for Your infinite glory. She invites me to thank You, to glorify You and to praise You for all that You are, My God. For this reason I take pleasure in repeating: I give You thanks for You Are Infinite Love.
After having prostrated myself to worship You in the Heart of Jesus, I want to give You thanks. I thank You, my God, because You are Love, and I thank You for all the gifts of Your Love. And since it is through Jesus that You have given us the most precious gifts, the gifts of supernatural life, it is also through Him, with Him and in Him, that I want to lift up to You this hymn of thanksgiving.
In union with Jesus I thank You, God the Father, for all the personal graces You have bestowed upon me. You gave me life, bringing me out of the void. You have conserved my life, day after day up to this moment. But You have given me another more valuable life, the life of grace, which makes me share in Your own Divine Life. And after the first grace, with which You sanctified me on the day of my Baptism, I have received from You so many more graces that have conserved, increased and, perhaps, regained my supernatural life!
I think of the gifts of Your Love, which I have enjoyed so abundantly:
† In the Church You have given me as my teacher and guide towards eternity.
† In the priests who have conferred on me the gifts of Your Love.
† In the forgiveness, continually renewed.
† In the Eucharist, which has been my nourishment, strength and consolation.
† In the Virgin Mary, who is my good Mother, my consoler, my help and my special protector during every instant of my life.
† In the Paradise You have prepared for me, which with Your grace, I hope to reach.
I look at my life, sown with joys and sorrows, and I understand that all in it has been Love. All of it, O My God, because from Your Loving Heart nothing but Grace and Love can flow.
R/: I thank You, my God.
† For all these things, R/.
† For all the gladness You have allowed me to enjoy; as well as for all the sorrows and trials You have scattered on my path, R/.
† For the known, as well as for the unknown graces, R/.
† For the favors of the past and for those in the future, R/.
† For all You have done in me and for me and for all that You will still want to do in the future, R/.
† Above all for calling me to the knowledge of Your Love and to consecrate myself to It, R/.
† For Your Light and Joy, of which I am far from being worthy, R/.
† For the light and joy that the knowledge of Your Love has brought to my life, R/.
† For the possession of Your Love, which makes You mine, and makes me Yours, R/.
But I do not want and ought not to give thanks for myself only. I give You thanks also for all the gifts which Your Love has poured out on the Church. I give You thanks for all the benefits granted to the angels and to the saints, perpetual praises of Your Love. And I thank You above all, for the innumerable benefits granted to Most Holy Mary, our sweet Mother. I thank You for having made her so great, so holy, so beautiful. I thank You for the privileges that You have given her and for the throne of glory, on which You have placed her. I give You thanks for having made of this creature of Your predilection, a Mother in whom I can and should place all my hopes.
In order to offer a more efficacious thanksgiving, I permit myself, O Lord, to liven it with my love. Therefore, I tell You again and again that I love You with all my heart, with all my soul, with all my mind and with all my strength.
R/: I love You, my God.
† You, who are infinite Love, R/.
† You, who have saved me by Your Love, R/.
† You, who command me to love You, R/.
† With all my heart, R/.
† With all my soul, R/.
† With all my spirit, R/.
† With all my strength, R/.
† Above all possessions and honors, R/.
† Above all pleasures and joys, R/.
† More than myself and all that belongs to me, R/.
† More than my parents and friends, R/.
† More than all men and angels, R/.
† Above all created things in Heaven and on earth, R/.
† Only for Yourself, R/.
† Because You are the utmost Goodness, R/.
† Because You are infinitely worthy of being loved, R/.
† Because You are infinitely Perfect, R/.
† Even if You had not promised me Paradise, R/.
† Even if You did not threaten me with hell, R/.
† Even if You tried me with misery and misfortune, R/.
† In abundance and in poverty, R/.
† In prosperity and in misfortune, R/.
† In honors and in scorns, R/.
† In joys and in pain, R/.
† In health and in sickness, R/.
† In life and in death, R/.
† In time and in eternity, R/.
† In union with the love, with which all the saints and angels love You in Heaven, R/.
† In union with the love, with which the Blessed Virgin Mary loves You, R/.
† In union with the infinite Love, with which You eternally love us, R/.
O My God, You who possesses in an unfathomable abundance all that is perfect and worthy of love, extinguish in me all culpable, sensual and inordinate love towards creatures. Ignite in my heart the most pure fire of Your Love so that I may love only You, for You, to the point of being consumed in Your Most Holy Love, so that I may go, together with the chosen, to love You eternally in Heaven. Amen.
Lord, now I want to make atonement before You. O Jesus, Divine Victim of our altars, great and only Atoner, I also unite myself to You in order to perform with You and through You, the role of a small atoning soul.
And I also call upon you, O my Mother, that just as you offered your Jesus to the Father at the same time that He immolated Himself for His Glory and for the salvation of souls at Calvary, may you renew at this moment, that mystical offering in my place.
Offer in the chalice of your Immaculate Heart, O sweet Virgin, the sorrows of Jesus together with yours in order to invoke Divine Mercy on me and on the whole world. After having thanked You for your endless gifts, how could I not be troubled at the sight of my many faults and infidelities? How ungrateful and cold I have been in response to your benefits!
Prostrated before You, who has loved me so much, filled with confusion and regret, I beseech Your Pardon and Your Mercy:
R/: O Jesus, have mercy on me!
† For the misuse I made of the natural gifts I received from You: my life, my energy, my time, my senses, my intelligence, my tongue, R/.
† For the great and small acts of disobedience to Your law, R/.
† For the duties, disregarded or carelessly completed, R/.
† For the good I could have done and have not done, R/.
† For allowing many times the triumph of bad inclinations in me; of pride, vanity and egoism, R/.
† For not having practiced Your commandment of charity as You ordained it, R/.
† For having left barren in me so many graces, R/.
† For the lukewarmness with which I practiced my life of piety, R/.
† For the indifference and coldness with which I responded to Your gifts of Love, R/.
† For having many times preferred the creatures and human satisfactions to You and Your consolations, R/.
† For the little fidelity and generosity with which I have lived my consecration, R/.
† For the lack of faith in Your Love and the abandonment of It, R/.
† For the lack of dedication to souls and to the Church, R/.
† For my rebelliousness and lack of love for Your Will, and Your Cross, R/.
I lose myself in Your Presence, O my God.
I kneel at Your Feet.
I prostrate myself in front of You, O Jesus, Divine Host, My Redeemer and Savior, as did Mary Magdalene. And even though it is true that I am unworthy of Your Love, I am certain that You will have for me the same merciful tenderness.
Father, when the joy of Your Presence is about me, how can I ever know discontent? For discontent puts a barrier between me and You, it dilutes the strength of Christ within me.
I do not know the reasons that tribulations may come upon me. I do not need to know the reasons. I know that in trusting You, Father, will answers to life's tests be found.
My problems are not really problems, they are merely means to strengthen my true self. The circumstances are only exercising tools. Strength and joy and wisdom come from mastering these tools, these come from the overcoming of conditions; which ignored could weaken or bring me pain.
In trust, I ask You, Father, Help me to know the difference between pleasure and joy; Help me to give purity of motive; Help me to put no other gods before You.... relationships, circumstances, self-satisfaction or anything.
I trust You, Lord, Help me to trust You more, show me the way. I cannot chart my path, for I have not come this way before. You, Lord know the way for You are the Path. So in trust, I walk every step with You.

His Answer Comes
Know this, my heart, that when you pray, before you find the words to say...Your Father hears. Without delay... His answer comes.
In simple ways, in varied forms, like morning sun that heals and warms, like sudden rainbows after storms... His answer comes.
Like gentle tappings on the door, or friendly footsteps on the floor to bring you joy unknown before... His answer comes.
Have you not felt upon your brow, His calming touch? Then feel it now and ask no longer when or how His answer comes...

A Prayer for Friends
Father, I ask you to bless my friends reading this right now. I am
asking You to minister to their spirit at this very moment. Where there is
pain, give them Your peace and mercy. Where there is self doubting, release
a renewed confidence in Your ability to work through them. Where there is
tiredness, or exhaustion, I ask You to give them understanding, patience,
and strength as they learn submission to your leading. Where there is
spiritual stagnation, I ask You to renew them by revealing Your nearness,
and by drawing them into greater intimacy with You.
Where there is fear, reveal Your love, and release to them Your courage.
Where there is a sin blocking them, reveal it, and break its hold over my
friend's life. Bless their finances, give them greater vision, and raise up
leaders, and friends to support, and encourage them. Give each of them
discernment to recognize the evil forces around them, and reveal to them the
power they have in You to defeat it. I ask You to do these things in Jesus'
PRAYER FOR PROTECTION
I bind all disruptive spirits around us in the water, on the earth, above the earth, in the elements and atmosphere, the principalities and powers. I rebuke you, order you and command you to be still, to be silent, to be mute, not to say one word or do one thing. I cut all communications coming and going around us by the power of the PRECIOUS BLOOD OF JESUS' WOUNDS, by the power of the RESURRECTED CHRIST, and the power given to MOTHER MARY to crush the evil one's head. I seal this place, these people, with the PRECIOUS BLOOD OF JESUS.
PRAYER TO ST. JOSEPH
O St. Joseph whose protection is so great, so strong, so prompt before the Throne of God, I place in you all my interests and desires. O St. Joseph do assist me by your powerful intercession and obtain for me from your Divine Son all spiritual blessings through Jesus Christ, Our Lord; so that having engaged here below your Heavenly power I may offer my Thanksgiving and Homage to the most Loving of Fathers. O St. Joseph, I never weary contemplating you and Jesus asleep in your arms. I dare not approach while He reposes near your heart. Press him in my name and kiss His fine Head for me, and ask Him to return the Kiss when I draw my dying breath. St. Joseph, Patron of departing souls, pray for us. Amen
Blessed Joseph, husband of Mary, be with us this day.
You protected and cherished the Virgin;
loving the Child Jesus as your Son,
you rescued Him from the danger of death.
Defend the Church, the household of God,
purchased by the blood of Christ.
Guardian of the Holy Family,
be with us in our trials.
May your prayers obtain for us
the strength to flee from error
and wrestle with the powers of corruption
so that in life we may grow in holiness
and in death rejoice in the crown of victory.
(A partial indulgence.)

Prayer to Padre
Beloved Padre Pio,
Today I come to add my prayers to the thousands of prayers offered to you every day by those who love and venerate you. They ask for cures and healings, earthly and spiritual blessings, and peace for body and mind. And because of your friendship with the Lord, He heals those you ask to be healed and forgives those you forgive.
Through your visible wounds of the Cross, which you bore for 50 years, you were chosen in our time to glorify the crucified Jesus. Because in many of our churches the tabernacle and the cross have been replaced with other symbols, please help to bring them back into our midst, for we acknowledge they are true signs of salvation.
As we lovingly recall the wounds that pierced your hands, feet and side, we not only remember the blood you shed in pain, but your smile and the invisible halo of sweet- smelling flowers that surrounded your presence, the perfume of sanctity.
Padre Pio, the Lord has invited you to join the holy company of Saints. In your kindness, please help me with my special request:..
Bless me and my loved ones. Make us your spiritual children. In the Name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. Amen.
PRAYER OF REPENTANCE
Loving Heavenly Father, I come again to worship You in the wonder of who You are.
I confess my sins to You, Dear Heavenly Father. Wash me clean in my Savior's Precious Blood from all that offends You. I recognize within my person a fleshly nature that can be rebellious in Your sight. I affirm that in my union with Christ in His death I am dead to the rule of the fleshly nature.
I desire the new nature You placed within me to be in charge through the power of my Savior's resurrection. Thank You for having made this new creation in righteousness and true holiness, so I can love You deeply and serve You fully.
May Your Holy Spirit enable me to manifest before You and others the fruit of His full control.
I confess that, as a believer, I show my poor, blind, and naked condition. Thank you that my Lord Jesus Christ has invited me to come and buy that gold refined in His disciplining fires. I want that gold for myself and for Your church. Anoint our eyes with the eye salve that enables us to see things as our Lord Jesus Christ sees them.
I base every request on the merit of our Lord Jesus Christ's finished work. Amen

PRAYER FOR MARRIAGE
Loving Heavenly Father, I thank You for Your perfect plan for our marriage. I know that a marriage functioning in Your will is fulfilling and beautiful. I bring our marriage before You that You make it all You desire it to be.

In His name, I break all negative relationships between us that have been established by Satan and his wicked spirits. I will accept only the relationships established by You and the Blessed Holy Spirit. I invite the Holy Spirit to enable me to relate to my spouse in a manner that will meet his/her needs.
I submit our conversations to You, that they may please You. I submit our physical relationship to You, that You may bless it. I submit our love to You, that You may cause it to grow and mature.
Open my eyes to see all areas where I am deceived. Open my spouse's eyes to see any of Satan's deceptions upon him/her. Make our union to be the Christ-centered relationship You have designed in Your perfect will. I ask this in Jesus' name with thanksgiving. Amen

Therefore, may we incline ourselves toward the divine will, seeing God's good and gracious purpose in all our trials. Amen. St. Jude, pray for us! My Jesus, my mercy!
ST. ANTHONY'S PRAYER FOR LOST CHILDREN
Lovable St. Anthony, we come to you, with complete childlike confidence, as a favor before God, who heeds your pleas for those in need.
Dear St. Anthony, loving protector, defender of the innocent, in trust we place in your arms our children, who often are victims of abuse, neglect, and violence.
Pray for their protection. Pray that those innocent victims, who suffer for the sins of others, be returned for our safe-keeping.
Pray for our peace of mind, to carry on this special mission, and comfort us in our time of loss.
Pray for all of us who have lost faith, hope, and friendship with God; so that we may have new faith, new hope, and new love.
Dear St. Anthony, procure for us steadfastness, and determination to make this nation a safer haven for our children.
In your kindness and compassion, consider these and all the prayers of your innocent children, and carry them up to heaven above, for the blessings on our troubled, unloved and unwanted.
Quiet the fears of our precious children and return peace and security in their hearts.

LIFE OFFERING TO THE INTENTION OF THE BLESSED VIRGIN MARY
The following messages, prayers, and promises were received by a privileged Hungarian nun, a consoling soul, who in her humility and obedience to her spiritual director wished to remain anonymous while living. (Her name was Sr. Maria Dolores, O.S.M.--Born: Elizabeth Krizsan). She died May 27, 1998 at the age of 96)
Mary, Our Heavenly Mother, implores those who receive Holy Communion daily, or at least weekly, to offer their lives for the greater glory of God and the salvation of souls, that the souls of sinners may not be damned but receive, at least at their last hour, the graces of eternal life.
The 5 Promises of Our Heavenly Mother to Those Who Offer Their Lives to Her
1. Their names will be written in the Hearts of Jesus and Mary, inflamed by love.
2. Their life offering, together with the infinite merits of Jesus, can save many souls from damnation. All souls who will live until the end of the world will benefit from their life offering.
3. None of their family members will go to hell, even if it seems otherwise, because they will receive, in the depth of their souls, the grace of sincere contrition before the soul departs from their bodies.
4. On the day they offer their lives, their loved ones suffering in Purgatory will be released.
5. I will be with them at the hour of their death. They will not know Purgatory. I will carry their souls straight to the presence of the Glorious Trinity, where they will live with me in a special place created by God and will rejoice forever.
Text of the Life Offering (1955)
My Dear Jesus, before the Holy Trinity Our Heavenly Mother, and the whole Heavenly Court, united with Your Most Precious Blood and Your sacrifice on Calvary, I hereby offer my whole life to the intention of your Sacred Heart and to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. Together with my life I place at your disposal all Holy Masses, all my Holy Communions, all my good deeds, all my sacrifices, and the sufferings of my entire life for the adoration and supplication of the Holy Trinity, for unity in our Holy Mother Church, for the Holy Father and priests, for good priestly vocations, and for all souls until the end of the world.
O my Jesus, please accept my life sacrifice and my offerings and give me your grace that I may persevere obediently until my death...Amen!
This life offering must be made with humble heart, firm resolution, and clear intent. All prayer, good deeds, suffering and work done with pure intention has great merit if it is offered together with the merits, the sufferings and the Blood of Jesus Christ.
It is recommended that you make this life offering as soon as you feel ready, and to renew it from time to time.
