Prayer to the Heavenly Court
Kneeling By the Bed-Side
Most adorable Trinity, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, I cast my nothingness into the abyss of thy divine perfection; and, in union with the adoration of Jesus, my divine Savior; I adore thee, as my sovereign Lord, my first beginning and my last end; and in union with his thanksgiving, I thank thee for all thy love and mercies to me. I thank thee for giving me another day to love, praise, and serve thee; and I beseech thee to grant that every moment of it may, according to thy gracious designs, secure to me the blessings of being nearer to thee in heaven; I offer to thee my whole being my soul with all its powers; my heart with all its affections, inclinations, desires, and intentions; my mind with all its faculties; I make this offering in the sacred heart of my Jesus, and under the auspices of my Blessed Virgin Mother, of my Guardian Angel, my special patron Saint_______, blessed St. Joseph, and St. Vincent, St. Michael the Archangel, and St. Gabriel the Angel of my Redemption Oh, that I could during this day by each action, give as much honor and glory to thee, my God, as the nine choirs of Angels, and all the Saints, and even as much as all possible created beings could render thee. Accept, Oh my God, this my ardent desire, accompanied by the most sincere and humble acknowledgement, that because of thy grace and mercy, I can do nothing unacceptable to thee that thou can cannot forgive.
