Lord, You have given me a body for it to help me fulfill my mission on earth and for eternity. By baptism, it was consecrated just as was my soul. Today I renew that consecration and submit my body to your service. Help me acquire over my body absolute control, so that it will always be an instrument, not a tyrant. Give it strength and endurance. Help me reject whatever is harmful to it: too much eating, drinking, smoking; abuse of drug or sex. Help me have the will to deprive it at times of normal pleasures as acts of sacrifice and as exercises in character building. May the frequent contact with your Body in the holy Eucharist make it sound and pure.
Amen.
