Prayer to Obtain the Grace of Being Constant in Prayer

O God of my soul,

I hope in Thy goodness

that Thou hast pardoned all my offenses against Thee,

and that I am now in a state of grace.

I thank Thee for it with all my heart,

and I hope to thank Thee for all eternity.

I know that I have fallen,

because I have not had recourse to Thee when I was tempted,

to ask for holy perseverance.

For the future,

I firmly resolve to recommend myself always to Thee,

and especially when I see myself in danger

of again offending Thee.

I will always fly to Thy mercy,

invoking always the most holy names of Jesus and Mary,

with full confidence that when I pray

Thou wilt not fail to give me the strength

which I have not of myself to resist my enemies.

This I resolve and promise to do.

But of what use, O my God,

will all these resolutions and promises be,

if Thou dost not assist me with Thy grace

to put them in practice; that is,

to have recourse to Thee in all dangers?

Ah, Eternal Father! Help me,

for the love of Jesus Christ;

and let me never omit recommending myself to Thee

whenever I am tempted.

I know that Thou dost always help me

when I have recourse to Thee;

but my fear is,

that I should forget to recommend myself to Thee,

and so my negligence will be the cause of my ruin,

that is, the loss of Thy grace,

the greatest evil that can happen to me.

Ah, by the merits of Jesus Christ,

give me grace to pray to Thee;

but grant me such an abundant grace

that I may always pray, and pray as I ought!



O my Mother Mary,

whenever I have had recourse to thee,

thou hast obtained for me the help

which has kept me from falling!

Now I come to beg of thee to obtain a still greater grace,

namely, that of recommending myself always to thy Son

and to thee in all my necessities.

My Queen, thou obtainest all thou dost desire from God

by the love thou bearest to Jesus Christ;

obtain for me now this grace

which I beg of thee, namely,

(State your intention here...)

to pray always,

and never to cease praying till I die.

Amen.
