Act of Contrition
Almighty Father, to whom all hearts are open, all desires known and from whom no secrets are hid; Cleanse the thoughts of my mind and heart by the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, that I may perfectly love you, and worthily glorify your holy name.
Quick Nightly Prayer
When the day closes in the darkness of night,
I pray to my Jesus that I did alright.
I admit my decisions where mine for the test,
Believe when I state I gave it my best.
Wrong choices were made, while some of them great;
Please Lord forgive me for my simple mistakes.
Tomorrow's a new day beginning at dawn,
I promise to try harder and correct all my wrongs.
"Lord grant me strength", is the prayer I should say,
but when I'm in trouble it isn't easy to pray.
So here I am Lord, before I lay down my head,
Forgive all my trespasses and I forgive them.
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.
