Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God, have mercy on me, a sinner.
Lord, grant me strength to meet with serenity everything that will happen today. Grant me to submit completely to Your holy will. At every hour of this day guide and support me in all things. Whatever news may reach me today, teach me to accept it with calmness and the conviction that all is subject to Your holy will.
In all my words and actions direct my thoughts and feelings. In all unexpected occurrences, do not let me forget that You alone are Lord. Teach me to deal straightforwardly and wisely with every person, neither embarrassing nor saddening anyone.
Lord, grant me strength to endure the fatigue of the coming day and all the events that take place during it. Direct my will and teach me to pray, to believe, to hope, to be patient, to forgive and to love.
Heavenly King, Comforter, Spirit of Truth, Who is everywhere present and fills all things, Treasury of good gifts and Giver of Life, come and abide in us, and cleanse us of all impurity, and save our souls, O Good One.
In the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, now and forever and unto ages of ages, Amen.
