My Father in Heaven, how good it is to know that You are my Father and that I am Your child!
Especially when the skies of my soul are cloudy and my cross weighs more heavily, I feel the need to repeat to You: Father, I believe in Your love for me.
Yes, I believe that You are a Father to me at every moment of my life, and that I am Your child!
I believe that You love me with an infinite love!
I believe that You are watching over me night and day and that not a hair falls from my head without Your permission!
I believe that, in Your infinite Wisdom, You know better than I what is good for me.
I believe that, in Your infinite power, You can bring good even out of evil.
I believe that, in your infinite goodness, You make everything to the advantage of those who love You: even under the hands of those who strike me, I kiss Your hand which heals!
I believe, but increase in me faith, hope, and love!
Teach me always to see Your love as my guide in every event in my life.
Teach me to surrender myself to You like a baby in its mother’s arms.
Father, You know everything, You see everything, and You know me better than I know myself: You can do everything, and You love me!
Give me the light, the grace, and the power of the Holy Spirit!
Strengthen me in this Spirit, that I may never lose Him, never sadden Him, and never allow Him to become weaker in me.
My Father, I ask this in the name of Jesus, Your Son! And you, Jesus, open Your Heart and place in it my own, and, together with Mary’s, offer it to our Divine Father! Obtain for me the grace that I need!
Divine Father, call all men to Yourself. Let all the world proclaim Your Fatherly Goodness and Your Divine Mercy!
Be a tender Father to me and protect me wherever I am, like the apple of Your eye.
Make me always a worthy son/daughter, Have mercy on me!
Divine Father, sweet hope of our souls, may You be known, honored, and loved by all men!
Divine Father, infinite goodness poured out on all peoples, may You be known, honored, and loved by all men!
Divine Father, beneficent dew of humanity, may You be known, honored and loved by all men!
