Sacrament Prayer 1
My Lord Jesus Christ,
Who, through the love which you bear toward men, does remain with them day and night in this sacrament, full of mercy and love, awaiting, inviting and receiving all who come to visit you, I believe that you are present in the Sacrament of the Altar. From the abyss of my nothingness, I adore you. I thank you for all the graces which you have bestowed upon me, particularly for having given me yourself in this sacrament, for having given my your most holy Mother Mary for my advocate, and for having called me to visit you in this church.
Sacrament Prayer 2
I love you with my whole heart. I am sorry for having offended your infinite goodness so many times. I purpose, with the help of your grace, never more to offend you; and, at this moment, miserable as I am, I consecrate my whole being to you. I give you my entire will, all my affections and desires and all that I have. From this day forward, do what you will with me and with everything that belongs to me. I ask and desire only your holy love, the gift of final perseverance and the perfect fulfillment of your will. I commend to you the souls in purgatory, particularly those who were most devoted to the Most Blessed Sacrament and to the Blessed Virgin Mary; and I also commend to you all poor sinners. Finally, my dear savior, I unite all my affections with the affections of your most loving Heart; and thus united, I offer them to your Eternal Father, and I entreat him, in your name and for your sake, to accept and answer them.
Sacrament Prayer 3
O God, the Eternal Father,
We ask thee in the name of thy Son, Jesus Christ, to bless and sanctify this bread to the souls of all those who partake of it, that they may eat in remembrance of the body of thy Son, and witness unto thee, O God, the Eternal Father, that they are willing to take upon them the name of thy Son, and always remember him and keep his commandments which he has given them; that they may always have his Spirit to be with them.
