We are so blessed to have a shepherd, not only recommend this in his sermon, but have it printed in our bulletin.

(To be prayed at least once a day, and in time of temptation- especially by those who struggle with habitual or repeated sins).

 

Heavenly Father, in the name of Jesus thy son I pray: May the Precious Blood of Jesus, wash over me and through me.  Let it heal any and every wound and scar, so that the devil may find no purchase in me. Cause it to saturate and fill up my whole being; my heart, soul, mind and body; my memory, and my imagination; my past and my present; every fiber of my being, every molecule, every atom. Let there remain no part of me untouched by His Precious Blood. Make it flow over and around the altar of my heart on every side.

[If there are particular wounds you know are there, add: Fill and heal especially the wounds and scars of/caused by __________________ ]

These things I ask of You, Heavenly Father, in the name of Jesus.

Jesus, likewise grant that the light of Your Holy Cross shine in all these same parts of me and my life, that no darkness remain where the devil may hide or have any influence.

Mary, Refuge of Sinners, pray for me to receive these graces I ask. Amen.
