Spare Me, O Jesus
O my God, I present myself before Thee, with a heartfelt sorrow for my sins. I humbly adore Thee; I believe in Thee and Thy Holy Catholic Church, and in Eternity. I hope in Thee, and, through Thy goodness, I hope for a happy Eternity. I love Thee with my whole heart, and for Eternity. I submit myself to whatever Thou shalt ordain concerning me; "here cut, here burn, but spare me in Eternity." Grant me, O Almighty and merciful God, the grace I stand in need of to serve Thee faithfully during life, and to possess Thee in Eternity. Through Christ, our Lord. Amen.
"In Thee, O Lord, have I hoped; let me never be confounded."
Sorrowful Mother Mary, pray for me now and at the hour of my death. Amen.
PRAYER OF A SOUL IN DESOLATION
"My Father, if it be possible, let this chalice pass from Me; nevertheless not as I will, but as Thou wilt." (Matth. xxvi, 39.)
I love Thee, though I seem
An enemy in Thy sight;
Repel me as Thou wilt,
I will ever follow Thee.
"What have I in Heaven, and besides
Thee what do I desire upon earth? Thou
art the God of my heart, and the God that
is my portion forever." (Ps. lxxll. 25, 26.)
My God, My God! all mine Thou art;
Myself I give Thee, all my heart;
For Thee, and Thee alone, I sigh.
