A Prayer to God, that he would be pleased to assist and accept my Preparation to receive the blessed Sacrament.

I PROSTRATE myself before thee, my most gracious God and merciful Father, in an humble acknowledgment of my unworthiness and insufficiency of myself, for any thing that is good. I am sensible that without thee I can do nothing; and therefore do humbly implore thy gracious assistance, and acceptance of my endeavour to prepare myself for the worthy receiving of the blessed sacrament of the body and blood of thy dear Son.

Stir up, I beseech thee, such pious affections and dispositions in my soul, and fill my mind with such holy meditations, as are suitable to this occasion. Grant me such a sense of my sins, and of the sufferings of my blessed Saviour for them, as may affect my heart with a deep sorrow for my sins, and 214an eternal hatred and displeasure against them, and may effectually engage me to love and live to him who died for me, Jesus Christ, my blessed Saviour and Redeemer. Amen.
