Perserverance during Lent

I wanted to ask for prayer for my RCIA community. I also have personal intentions that I wanted to ask prayer for.

One thing I wanted to ask for is the grace to make a good confession. Lately I have been having trouble saying acts of Perfect contrition, and I think that may be a sign that God wants me to prepare to go to confession.

I just know that Lent is the time when people, especially candidates and catechumans, really get attacked by the Devil. I have this sense all the time that since I have trouble with loving Christ with all my heart, and trusting Him, that I’m just going to get winnowed out of this. I don’t want to go to Hell, and I want to ask for your prayers that I would somehow make it through this.

Praying for your intentions.

Remember,
O most gracious Virgin Mary,
that never was it known that any one who fled to thy protection,
implored thy help or sought thy intercession,
was left unaided.
Inspired with this confidence,
I fly unto thee,
O Virgin of virgins my Mother;
to thee do I come,
before thee I stand,
sinful and sorrowful;
O Mother of thy Word Incarnate,
despise not my petitions,
but in thy clemency hear and answer me.
Amen

Hail Mary, full of grace,
The Lord is with Thee;
Blessed art thou among women,
And blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus.
Holy Mary, Mother of God,
Pray for us sinners,
Now and at the hour of our death. Amen.

Our Father,
who art in heaven,
hallowed be thy name;
thy kingdom come;
thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread;
and forgive us our trespasses
as we forgive those who trespass against us;
and lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil. Amen.

Keep us all close to you, this Lent, Jesus. Don’t let us be separated from you. Lead us to heaven where we can be happy with you forever. Don’t let us be trapped by the world. Amen.

This is a really great prayer, Petra. :slight_smile:

Saint Michael, the archangel, defend us in battle, be our defense against the wickedness and snares of the devil, may God rebuke him, we humbly pray. And do you, O’ Prince of the Heavenly host, by the power of God thrust into Hell Satan and all the other evil spirits who prowl about the world for the ruin of souls.

Amen.

Praying that the Lord may grant all necessary graces to you and your RCIA community. Also praying for graces for you to make a good confession.

O Blood and Water, which gushed forth from the Heart of Jesus as a fountain of Mercy for us, I trust in You!

Gracious and merciful Father, please come to their assistance.

Our Father, who art in Heaven, hallowed be thy name.
Thy kingdom come, thy will be done, on Earth as it is in Heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread,
and forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.
Amen.

As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end.
Amen.
