Prayer For Adoration
Precious God, I thank You for sending Your Son who took some bread, blessed it and broke it saying, Take it: this is My body. Your Son also took a cup and gave thanks, He gave it to Your disciples who all drank from it saying, This is My blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many. Today, Lord, we are the many, we have come to give thanks for and partake in the sacrifice that You made for us, Amen.
I adore you, O Jesus, God of love, truly present in the Most Holy Sacrament. I adore you who has come to your own but were not received by them. I adore you, whom the majority of mankind rejected and despised. I adore you, whom the impious incessantly offend by their sacrileges and blasphemies. I adore you, who are grieved by the coldness and indifference of a vast number of Christians. I adore you, O Infinite Goodness, who has wrought so many miracles, in order to reveal your love to us. I adore you, with all the angels and saints, and with those chosen souls that are now already the blessed of your Father and are all aglow with burning love for you. I adore you with all your friends, O Jesus! With them I prostrate myself at the foot of the Altar, to offer you my most profound homage, to receive your Divine Inspiration, and to implore your grace. Oh, how good it is for me to be here with you! How sweet to hear the voice of my beloved! O victim of divine love! A piercing cry breaks forth from your heart here on the altar, as it once did on calvary; it is the cry of love; "I thirst," you call to your children, "I thirst for your love! Come all, whom I love as my Father has loved me; come and quench the thirst that consumes me!
Lord Jesus, behold I come. My heart is small, but it is all yours. You are a prisoner in our tabernacles, you the Lord of Lords! And love it is, that holds you here as such! You leave the tabernacle only to come to us, to unite yourself with the faithful soul and allow your divine love to reign within. O King of love! Come, live and reign in me. I want no other law but the law of your love! No, no, I henceforth desire to know nothing, neither of this world nor of what is in it, nor of myself; your love alone shall rule in me eternally. O Jesus, grant me this grace! Break all my fetters, strip me of all that is not of yourself, in order that your love may be my life here below, and my happiness and delight in eternity, Amen.
My Lord Jesus Christ,
I believe that You are really here in this Sacrament.
Night and day You remain here compassionate and loving.
You call, You wait for,
You welcome everyone who comes to visit You.
I thank You, Jesus my Divine Redeemer
for coming upon the earth for our sake
and for instituting the Adorable Sacrament of the Holy
in order to remain with us until the end of the world.
I thank You for hiding beneath the Eucharistic species
Your infinite majesty and beauty,
which Your Angels delight to behold,
so that I might have courage to approach the throne of

I thank You for offering Yourself
in thanksgiving to God for all His benefits,
spiritual and temporal
which He has bestowed on me.
Grant me grace and perseverance in your faithful service.
Stay with me, Lord, for it is necessary to have You present so that I do not forget You. You know how easily I abandon You.
Stay with me, Lord, because I am weak and I need Your strength, that I may not fall so often.
Stay with me, Lord, for You are my life, and without You, I am without fervor.
Stay with me, Lord, for You are my light, and without You, I am in darkness.

Stay with me, Lord, for as poor as my soul is, I want it to be a place of consolation for You, a nest of love.
Stay with me, Jesus, for it is getting late and the day is coming to a close, and life passes; death, judgment, eternity approaches. It is necessary to renew my strength, so that I will not stop along the way and for that, I need You. It is getting late and death approaches, I fear the darkness, the temptations, the dryness, the cross, the sorrows. O how I need You, my Jesus, in this night of exile!
Stay with me tonight, Jesus, in life with all its dangers. I need You.
Let me recognize You as Your disciples did at the breaking of the bread, so that the Eucharistic Communion be the Light which disperses the darkness, the force which sustains me, the unique joy of my heart.
Stay with me, Lord, because at the hour of my death, I want to remain united to You, if not by communion, at least by grace and love.
Stay with me, Jesus, I do not ask for divine consolation, because I do not merit it, but the gift of Your Presence, oh yes, I ask this of You!
Stay with me, Lord, for it is You alone I look for, Your Love, Your Grace, Your Will, Your Heart, Your Spirit because I love You and ask no other reward but to love You more and more.
With a firm love, I will love You with all my heart while on earth and continue to love You perfectly during all eternity.
Lord, Father all-powerful and ever-living God, I thank You, for
even though I am a sinner, your unprofitable servant, not
because of my worth but in the kindness of your mercy,
You have fed me with the Precious Body & Blood of Your Son,
our Lord Jesus Christ.
I pray that this Holy Communion may not bring me
condemnation and punishment but forgiveness and salvation.
May it be a helmet of faith and a shield of good will.
May it purify me from evil ways and put an end to my evil passions.
May it bring me charity and patience, humility and obedience,
and growth in the power to do good.
May it be my strong defense against all my enemies, visible and invisible, and the perfect calming of all my evil impulses,
bodily and spiritual.
May it unite me more closely to you, the One true God, and lead me
safely through death to everlasting happiness with You.
And I pray that You will lead me, a sinner, to the banquet where you,
with Your Son and holy Spirit, are true and perfect light, total fulfillment, everlasting joy, gladness without end, and perfect
happiness to your saints. grant this through Christ our Lord,
Blessed be God.

Down in adoration falling, Lo! the sacred host we hail; Lo! o'er ancient forms departing, Newer rites of graces prevail; Faith for all defects supplying, Where the feeble senses fail. To the everlasting Father, And the Son, who reigns on high, With the
Holy Ghost proceeding Forth from each eternally, Be salvation, honour, blessing, Might and endless majesty.
V. Thou gavest them bread from heaven.
R. And therein was sweetness of every kind.
Let Us Pray.
O God, Who, under this wonderful Sacrament, hast left unto us the memorials of Thy Passion; grant us, we beseech Thee, so to venerate the sacred mysteries of Thy Body and Thy Blood, that we may constantly experience within us the fruit of Thy redemption.
Who livest and reignest...
O Sacrament Most Holy,
O Sacrament Divine!
All praise and all
