Opening prayer for every day

Oh my God, the God of love and honesty. Lord Jesus, reverend of our souls, I humbly prostrate before your majesty, hating, in the bitterness of my heart, all my sins committed as an insult to you, who deserves to be loved above all things.

Oh, infinite goodness, which I never bothered you!

Forgive me, Lord, God of mercy and mercy, forgive my constant betrayals. Forgive me, God, for not having had the courage to do anything good, after so many times you have asked me for your mercy and grace, you have reprimanded me and inspired me with love.

The remorse for the ruthless correspondence and the undeserved blindness with which I continually resisted your gentle and divine invitations cast a shadow over me. But I firmly suggest, with your help, that I should not be a rebel to you and that I follow your tender inspiration with the utmost docility from now on. To this end, enlighten me!

O Source of Light, strengthen my will, purify my heart, cast out all my thoughts, desires, and emotions, and grant me to be worthy of the blessed fruits that Your gifts produce in the souls you possess.

Grant me the blessings that I ask of you, in this novena, so that I may see you, to your greatest glory, I love and adore you endlessly. Trustworthy.
