Prayer for God's Greater Presence

Lord God,
Heavenly King,
Almighty God the Father,
set the reign of your eternal kingdom
upon the heart of my dying flesh
that I who would pass from the earth
as a vapor in the wind
shall live in your reign as a spirit of the King.

Lord God,
Holy Messiah,
Redeemer of all God’s creation,
fill my heart with the unfailing forgiveness
of your eternal sacrifice,
that the infinite abundance of your divine grace
may overwhelm the dark sin of my human heart.
Overflow my life with an excess of your immortal presence,
that the power of the eternal God may forever crush
the weakness of my tempted flesh.

Eternal God , in whom mercy is endless,
and the treasury of compassion inexhastible ,
look kindly upon us and increase Your mercy in us ,
that in difficult moments we might not despair
nor become despondent , but with great confidence ,
submit ourselves to Your Holy Will ,
which is love and mercy itself . Amen

Memorare (Prayer to Our Lady)
Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to your protection, implored your help, or sought your intercession, was left unaided.
Inspired by this confidence, I fly unto you, O Virgin of virgins, my Mother. To you do I come, before you I stand, sinful and sorrowful. O Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not my petitions, but in your mercy, hear and answer me. Amen
