O GOD the Father, of Heaven: have mercy upon us, miserable sinners.
O God the Son, Redeemer of the world: have mercy upon us, miserable sinners.
O God the Holy Ghost, proceeding from the Father and the Son: have mercy upon us, miserable sinners.
O Holy, Blessed, and Glorious Trinity, three persons and one God: have mercy upon us, miserable sinners.

Remember not, Precious Lord, our offenses; neither deal with us according to our sins; spare us, good Lord, Spare Your people, whom You have redeemed with Your most precious blood: after the multitude of Your great mercies, Spare us, good Lord.

From all evil, especially from the evil of sin; from the crafts and assaults of the devil; from Your wrath, and from everlasting damnation, Good Lord, deliver us.

From all blindness of heart; from pride, self-conceit, and hypocrisy; from envy, hatred, and malice, and all uncharitableness, Good Lord, deliver us.

By the mystery of Your holy Incarnation; by Your cross and passion; by Your precious death and burial; by Your glorious resurrection and ascension; and by the coming of the Holy Ghost, Good Lord, deliver us.

In all the times of our tribulation; in all the times of our wealth; in the hour of death, and in the day of Judgment, Good Lord, deliver us.

We pray to You, Almighty God, for future mercies, let us not forget to acknowledge those which we have already received. We bless You for our creation; we bless You for preserving us till now; we bless You for all Your goodness towards us; but, above all, we bless You for Your great love in sending Your Son Jesus Christ into the world, to die for our sins, and to rise again for our justification. We beseech You to make us so sensible of Your mercies, that our hearts may be truly thankful; and that we may praise You, not only with our lips, but in our lives, by giving up ourselves to Your service; and by walking before You in holiness and righteousness all our days, through Jesus Christ, our Lord, to whom with You, and the Holy Ghost, be all honor and glory, world without end. Amen. – A Selection of Prayers for Families by Edward Jones
