Prayer to be said Everyday to Obtain the Graces Necessary for Salvation - by Saint Alphonsus
Thy Son has promised that Thou wilt grant us all the
which we ask Thee for in His name.
In the name, therefore,
and by the merits of Jesus Christ,
I ask the following graces for myself and for all mankind:
I pray Thee to give me a lively faith in all
that the holy Roman Church teaches me.
Enlighten me also,
that I may know the vanity of the goods of this world,
and the immensity of the Infinite Good that Thou art;
make me also see the deformity of the sins I have
that I may humble myself and detest them as I ought;
and, on the other hand, show me how worthy Thou art,
by reason of Thy goodness,
that I should love Thee with all my heart.
Make me know also the love Thou has borne me,
that from this day forward I may try to be grateful for so
give me a firm confidence in Thy mercy
of receiving the pardon of my sins,
holy perseverance, and, finally,
the glory of paradise,
through the merits of Jesus Christ
and the intercession of Mary.
give me a great love toward Thee,
which shall detach me from the love of this world and of
so that I may love none other but Thee,
and that I may neither do nor desire anything else
but what is for Thy glory.
I beg of Thee a perfect resignation to Thy will,
in accepting with tranquility sorrows,
infirmities, contempt, persecutions, aridity of spirit,
loss of property, of esteem, of relations,
and every other cross which shall come to me from Thy
I offer myself entirely to Thee,
that thou mayest do with me,
and all that belongs to me,
what thou pleasest;
do Thou only give me light and strength to do Thy will,
and, especially at the hour of death,
help me to sacrifice my life to Thee
with all the affection I am capable of,
in union with the sacrifice which Thy Son Jesus Christ
made of His life on the cross of Calvary.
I beg of Thee a great sorrow for my sins,
which may make me grieve over them as long as I live,
and weep for the insults I have offered Thee,
the Sovereign Good,
who art worthy of infinite love, and who hast loved me so
I pray Thee to give me the spirit of true humility and
that I may accept with peace,
and even with joy, all the contempt,
ingratitude and ill-treatment that I may receive.
At the same time I also pray Thee to give me perfect
which shall make me wish well to those who have done evil
and to do what good I can, at least by praying,
for those who have in any way injured me.
I beg of Thee to give me a love for the virtue of holy
by which I may chastise my rebellious senses,
and cross my self-love;
at the same time I beg Thee to give me holy purity of
and the grace to resist all bad temptations,
by ever having recourse to Thee and Thy most Holy Mother.
Give me the grace faithfully to obey my spiritual father
and all my superiors in all things.
Give me an upright intention,
that in all I desire and do I may seek only Thy glory,
and to please Thee alone.
Give me a great confidence in the Passion of Jesus Christ,
and in the intercession of Mary Immaculate.
Give me a great love toward the most Adorable Sacrament of
and a tender devotion and love to Thy Holy Mother.
Give me, I pray Thee, above all,
holy perseverance, and the grace always to pray for it,
especially in time of temptation and at the hour of death.
I recommend to Thee the holy souls in Purgatory,
my relations and benefactors;
and in an especial manner I recommend to Thee all those
who hate me,
or who have in any way offended me;
I beg of Thee to render them good for the evil they have
or may wish to do me.
I also recommend to Thee all infidels, heretics,
and all poor sinners;
give them light and strength to deliver themselves from
O, most loving God,
make Thyself known and loved by all,
but especially by those
who have been more ungrateful to Thee than others,
so that by Thy goodness I may come one day
to sing Thy mercies in paradise;
for my hope is in the merits of Thy Blood,
and in the patronage of Mary.
O Mary, Mother of God,
pray to Jesus for me!
So I hope; so may it be!
By Saint Alphonsus.
