Prayer to Become More Like Jesus

God, our Father,

You redeemed us

and made us Your children in Christ.

Through Him You have saved us from death

and given us Your Divine life of grace.

By becoming more like Jesus on earth,

may I come to share His glory in Heaven.

Give me the peace of Your kingdom,

which this world does not give.

By Your loving care protect the good You have given me.

Open my eyes to the wonders of Your Love

that I may serve You with a willing heart.

PRAYER BEFORE A CRUCIFIX

Look down upon me, good and gentle Jesus

while before Your face I humbly kneel and,

with burning soul,

pray and beseech You

to fix deep in my heart lively sentiments

of faith, hope, and charity;

true contrition for my sins,

and a firm purpose of amendment.

While I contemplate,

with great love and tender pity,

Your five most precious wounds,

pondering over them within me

and calling to mind the words which David,

Your prophet, said to You, my Jesus:

"They have pierced My hands and My feet,

they have numbered all My bones."

Amen.
