Darious Prayers and Devotions.


"There is no other Name under heaven given to men, whereby we must be saved." (Acts 4.)

"God has given Him a Name which is above all names, that in the Name of Jesus, every knee should bow, of those in heaven, on earth, and under the earth; and that every tongue should confess that our Lord Jesus Christ is in the glory of God the Father." (Phil. 2.)

The invocations of the most holy Name, which precede the several Petitions, have been omitted; as also the prayer "Have mercy on all sinners" &c., after the four first Petitions of the several Parts.


[ESU, have mercy on me, O God of compassion,

have committed in Thy sight. Many have been the follies of my life, and great are the miseries I have deserved for my ingratitude.

Have mercy on me, for I am weak; O Lord, heal me, who am unable to help myself. Deliver me from setting my heart upon any of Thy creatures, which may divert my eyes from continually looking up to Thee.

Grant me grace henceforth, for the love of Thee, to hate sin; and, out of a just esteem of Thee, to despise all worldly vanities.

Jesu, help me to overcome all temptations to sin, and the malice of my ghostly enemy. Help

me to spend my time in virtuous actions, and in such labours as are acceptable to Thee.

To resist and repress the motions of my flesh to sloth, gluttony, and impurity. To render my heart enamoured of virtue, and inflamed with desires of Thy glorious presence.

Help me to deserve and keep a good name, by a peaceful and pious living, to Thine honour. O Jesu, mine own comfort, and the benefit of others.

Jesu, strengthen me in soul and body, to please Thee in executing such works of virtue as will bring me to Thine everlasting joy and felicity. Grant me a firm purpose, most merciful Saviour, to amend my life, and to atone for the years past: years which I have misspent to Thy displeasure, in vain or wicked thoughts, words, deeds, and evil customs.

Make my heart obedient to Thy will, and ready, for Thy love, to perform all the works of mercy. Grant me the gifts of the Holy Ghost : which, through a virtuous life and a devout frequenting of Thy most holy Sacraments, may at length bring me to Thy heavenly kingdom.

Jesu, comfort me, and give me grace to place my chief, my only joy and felicity in Thee. Send me heavenly meditations, spiritual sweetness, and fervent desires of Thy glory; ravish my soul with the contemplation of heaven, where I shall everlastingly dwell with Thee.

Call often to my remembrance Thine unspeak
