Prayer Before the Blessed Sacrament

A powerful prayer to be prayed during Eucharistic Adoration.

The Eucharist exposed atop a "Burning Bush" of lit candles.

O God, because you have said it, I believe that you are present in the Blessed Sacrament. My God, I believe this with all my heart. My God, I confess that I am a poor sinner; I am not worthy to be in your presence, on account of my sins; only say the word, and my soul will be healed. My God, I detest all the sins of my life. I am sorry for them, because they have offended you, my God, you who are so good. I resolve never to commit sin any more. My good God, pity me, have mercy on me, forgive me. Jesus, I love you. I desire with all my heart to be with you and follow you. Jesus, come into my poor soul, and give me your spirit of humility, forgiveness and love. Give me your whole self, Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity, that I may live for ever with you. O God, help me as I adore you in the Blessed Sacrament. Mary, my dearest mother, pray to Jesus for me. My dear Guardian Angel, lead me to the altar of God. O Jesus, great God, present on the altar, I bow down before you. I adore you.
