  • Chastity Prayer (St. Thomas Aquinas)

    Lord Jesus, I know that every perfect gift, and especially that of chastity, depends on the power of Your providence. Without You a mere creature can do nothing. Therefore, I beg You to defend by Your grace the chastity and purity of my body and soul. And if I have ever sensed or imagined anything that could stain my chastity and purity, blot it out, Supreme Lord of my powers, that I may advance with a pure heart in Your love and service, offering myself on the most pure altar of Your divinity all the days of my life. Amen.

  • Healing From a Previous Relationship

    Lord Jesus I surrender all the wounds of the past relationship into Your Most Sacred Heart. Though I feel so empty and bewildered by what has happened, I lean onto You for understanding.

Heal me Jesus of all the brokenness and set me free from all the bondages of the unhealthy relationship I had. All this I ask in the mighty and matchless name of Jesus. Amen.

  • Prayer for Choosing a State of Life

    From all eternity, O Lord, You planned my very existence and my destiny. You wrapped me in Your love in baptism and gave me the Faith to lead me to an eternal life of happiness with You. You have showered me with Your graces and You have been always ready with Your mercy and forgiveness when I have fallen. Now I beg You for the light I so earnestly need that I may find the way of life in which lies the best fulfilment of Your will. Whatever state this may be, give me the grace necessary to embrace it with love of Your holy will, as devotedly as Your Blessed Mother did Your will. I offer myself to You now, trusting in Your wisdom and love to direct me in working out my salvation and in helping others to know and come close to You, so that I may find my reward in union with You forever and ever.

    Amen.

  • Prayer Against the Sins of the Flesh

    Most holy and merciful Father, Your Son was crucified, stripped of His garments, in expiation for our sins so that we may come to know You and love You.  Receive my humble prayer for those living in sexual immorality and perversions.  I offer You the humiliation Your only Son endured for their conversion.  In Your great mercy, touch their lives and deliver them from the bondages of sin.  I implore You, let Your Precious Blood fall on their hearts so that they may repent and turn to You.  Grant them the courage to change their lives according to Your holy will. Amen.
