Prayer

A MORNING PRAYER WRITTEN BY ST. THERESE

O my God! I offer Thee all my actions of this day for the intentions and for the    glory of the Sacred Heart of Jesus. I desire to sanctify every beat of my heart, my every    thought, my simplest works, by uniting them to Its infinite merits; and I wish to make    reparation for my sins by casting them into the furnace of Its Merciful Love.

O my God! I ask of Thee for myself and for those whom I hold dear, the    grace to fulfill perfectly Thy Holy Will, to accept for love of Thee the joys and sorrows    of this passing life, so that we may one day be united together in heaven for all    Eternity.

Amen.

PRAYER TO ST. THERESE

O little St. Theresa of the Child Jesus, who during your short life on    earth became a mirror of angelic purity, of love strong as death, and of wholehearted    abandonment to God, now that you rejoice in the reward of your virtues, cast a glance of    pity on me as I leave all things in your hands. Make my troubles your own – speak a word    for me to our Lady Immaculate, whose flower of special love you were – to that Queen of    heaven “who smiled on you at the dawn of life.” Beg her as the Queen of the    heart of Jesus to obtain for me by her powerful intercession, the grace I yearn for so    ardently at this moment, and that she join with it a blessing that may strengthen me    during life. Defend me at the hour of death, and lead me straight on to a happy eternity.

Amen
