Morning Prayer

This is a lovely morning prayer from the 1962 missal.

O Great God, the sovereign Lord of heaven and earth, I prostrate myself before Thee.  With all the Angels and Saints I adore Thee, I acknowledge Thee to be my Creator and sovereign Lord, my first beginning and last end.  I render to Thee the homage of my being and life.  I submit myself to Thy holy Will, and I devote myself to Thy divine service this day and forever.

The say the Our Father, Hail Mary, Apostles’ Creed, and the Acts of Faith, Hope and Charity.

Our Father

Our Father, Who art in heaven, hallowed by Thy name.  Thy kingdom come.  They will be done on earth, as it is in heaven.  Give us this day our daily bread.  And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us.  And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.  Amen.

Hail Mary

Hail, Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee; blessed art thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus.  Holy Mary, Mother of God, prayer for us sinners now and at the hour of our death.  Amen.

Apostles’ Creed

I believe in God the Father almighty, Creator of heaven and earth.  And in Jesus Christ, His only Son, Our Lord, Who was conceived by the Holy Ghost, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried:  He descended into Hell, the third day He arose again from the dead; He ascended into Heaven, sitteth at the right hand of God the Father almighty; from thence He shall come to judge the living and the dead.   I believe in the Holy Ghost, the holy Catholic Church, the communion of Saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and life everlasting.  Amen.

Act of Faith

O My God!  I firmly believe that Thou art one God in three divine Persons, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost; I believe that Thy divine Son became man, and died for our sins, and that He will come to judge the living and the dead. I believe these and all the truths which the holy Catholic Church teaches, because Thou hast revealed them, Who canst neither deceive nor be deceived.

Act of Hope

O My God! relying on Thy infinite goodness and and promises, I hope to obtain pardon of my sins, the help of Thy grace, and life everlasting, through the merits of Jesus Christ, my Lord and Redeemer.

Act of Charity

O My God, I love Thee above all things, with my whole heart and soul, because Thou art all good and worthy of all love.  I love my neighbor as myself for the love of Thee.  I forgive all who have injured me, and ask pardon of all whom I have injured.

Make a firm resolution to avoid evil and to do good.
