Prayers for Repentance and Forgiveness:

O God, in your great Mercy and Love, grant that I may sincerely and thoroughly repent from all my sins, and humbly and devoutly receive your forgiveness through the Sacrament of Reconciliation, and grant this same merciful grace to other poor sinners, especially those most in need of repentance and forgiveness.

Merciful Jesus, I offer you my little prayers and sufferings, united with your great prayers and sufferings on the Cross, for the conversion of sinners. In your great Mercy and Love for all, grant that we may sincerely and thoroughly repent from every sin, and humbly receive your forgiveness in the Sacrament of Reconciliation.

Prayers for the Virtue of Faith:

O God, by Your merciful grace, grant that I may persevere in the one true Catholic faith throughout the remainder of my life, no matter what sufferings and trials may fall upon me.

Lord Jesus Christ, by your merciful prayers, sufferings and death on the Cross, grant that all those who have fallen away from the fullness of faith may repent, confess, do penance and humbly return to complete faith in every teaching of the Holy Roman Catholic Church.
