Act of Petition after Holy Communion
relying on Thy infinite goodness,
I hope to obtain through this holy communion
all the graces of which I stand in need
for my greater sanctification and eternal salvation.
Begging Thy pardon for all the transgressions of my past
I first of all beseech Thee
to give me the grace that I may never again fall into any
I would rather be dead than live a moment
without Thy grace and Thy love.
But Thou, O Lord, knowest how weak I am
and how prone to evil.
Do Thou strengthen me by Thy grace
that I may be faithful in doing Thy will.
Thou canst heal all the evils of my soul
since Thou art its true Physician,
who givest me Thy body and blood
in this Blessed Sacrament as a sovereign medicine for all
Dispel the darkness of ignorance
from my understanding by Thy heavenly light;
banish the corruption and malice of my will
by the fire of Thy divine love;
subdue in me all evil passions
and help me especially to overcome my predominant fault;
stand by me in all temptations of the devil,
the world, and the flesh,
that I may not fall into their snares.
Increase my faith,
and grant that in my daily life
I may be guided by Thy example
and the maxims of Thy holy Gospel.
Teach me to be poor in spirit;
to place no value upon the world's transitory pleasures
to be meek and humble of heart
and in patience to possess my soul;
to love Thee more and more
and to walk always in Thy presence;
to be kind and generous to my neighbour;
to strive earnestly to advance every day in holiness and
May Thy holy will be accomplished in me.
Grant me, above all, the grace of final perseverance;
that I may become a saint.
O Mary, immaculate Mother of God!
All ye angels and saints of heaven!
Unite your prayers with mine
as you stand before the throne of Divine grace,
and, above all, pray that I may be united with you in
praising and enjoying God for all eternity.
