INTERCESSION PRAYER TO ST. THERESE PATRON OF MISSIONS
Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name;
thy kingdom come; thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread; and forgive us our trespasses
as we forgive those who trespass against us;
and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.
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.
O little St. Theresa of the blessed 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 virgin, 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 that 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
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.
Glory be, to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit.
As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be,
world without end. AMEN.
