Lord Jesus Christ, I believe in You as my God and my Saviour. Make me more faithful to Your Gospel and commandments.

Teach me to value and be thankful for all of Your Gifts. Help us to strive for eternal life. Amen
Perseverance Prayer – 2
Eternal Father, I humbly adore Thee, and thank Thee for having created me, and for having redeemed me through Jesus Christ. I thank Thee most sincerely for having made me a Christian, by giving me the true faith, and by adopting me as Thy son, in the sacrament of baptism. I thank Thee for having, after the numberless sins I had committed, waited for my repentance, and for having pardoned (as I humbly hope) all the offences which I have offered to Thee, and for which I am now sincerely sorry, because they have been displeasing to Thee, who art infinite goodness. I thank Thee for having preserved me from so many relapses, of which I would have been guilty if Thou hadst not protected me. But my enemies still continue, and will continue till death, to combat against me, and to endeavor to make me their slave. If Thou doest not constantly guard and succour me with thy aid, I, a miserable creature, shall return to sin, and shall certainly lose Thy grace. I beseech Thee, then, for the love of Jesus Christ, to grant me holy perseverance unto death. Jesus, Thy Son, has promised that Thou wilt grant whatsoever we ask in his name. Through the merits, then, of Jesus Christ, I beg, for myself and for all the just, the grace never again to be separated from Thy love, but to love Thee forever, in time and eternity. Mary, Mother of God, pray to Jesus for me. Amen.
Perseverance Prayer – 3
I have called upon Thee,
For Thou wilt hear me, o Lord, and hear my speech.
Show Thy marvellous loving kindness, O Thou that savest by
Thy right hand those who put their trust in Thee from those
That rises up against them.
Keep me as the apple of thine eye;
Hide me under the shadow of Thy wings
Continuance in a state of grace to the end, leading to eternal salvation. Amen.

Lord Jesus, there is anger in my heart and I cannot root it out.
I know that I should calm down and offer the hurt and disappointment to You
but my emotions are running away with me.
Help me to overcome this weakness and give me peace of heart as well as mind.
Let me learn from this experience and grow into a better human being. Amen
