Prayer For Preparation For First Holy Communion

O my God, I thank you for loving me.

I am sorry for all my sins,

for not loving others and not loving you.

Help me to live like Jesus

and not sin again .


I confess to almighty God

and to you, my brothers and sisters,

that I have greatly sinned, in my thoughts and in my words,

in what I have done and in what I have failed to do,

through my fault, through my fault,

through my most grievous fault;

therefore I ask blessed Mary ever-Virgin,

all the Angels and Saints,

and you, my brothers and sisters,

to pray for me to the Lord our God.


Master, Who loves mankind, Lord Jesus Christ my God, do not let these Holy Things be to me for judgment because of my unworthiness, but rather may they be for the purification and sanctification of soul and body, and as a pledge of the life and Kingdom to come. For it is good for me to cleave to God, to put my hope of salvation in the Lord.

O Jesus, You have loved us with such exceedingly great love as to give us the ineffable gift of the Holy Eucharist, inflame us with a burning zeal to promote Your glory by praying for (your child's name) to prepare worthily to approach Your holy table for the first time. Protect, O Sacred Heart of Jesus, this young soul from the assaults of evil, strengthen his/her faith, increase his/her love and endow him/her with all the virtues that will make him/her worthy to receive You. Amen.

Holy Spirit, I want to do what is right.
Help me. Holy Spirit, I want to live like Jesus.
Guide me. Holy Spirit, I want to pray like Jesus.
Teach me. Amen.
Spirit of God in the heavens.
Spirit of God in the seas.
Spirit of God in the mountain-tops.
Spirit of God in me.
Spirit of God in the sunlight.
Spirit of God in the air.
Spirit of God all around me.
Spirit of God everywhere.
Holy Spirit, Spirit of God help me. Amen.

Be near me, Lord Jesus,
I ask you to stay close by me forever
and love me, I pray.
Bless all of us children in your loving care
and bring us to heaven to live with you there.
I'm ready now, Lord Jesus,
To show how much I care.
I'm ready now to give your love
at home and everywhere. Amen.

Lord Jesus, I love and adore you.
You're a special friend to me.
Welcome, Lord Jesus, o welcome.
Thank you for coming to me.
Thank you, Lord Jesus, o thank you
for giving yourself to me.
Make me strong to show your love
wherever I may be.

Lord Jesus, come to me,
Lord Jesus, give me your love.
Lord Jesus, friend of children, come to me.
Lord Jesus, you are my Lord and my God.
Praise to you, Lord Jesus Christ.
