These 9 petitions help form our prayers and understand what we need to strive for in our spiritual life.

While God has given us a pathway to Heaven, we still have to walk upon it and not grow weary of the journey.

This can often be difficult, and we may abandon the way when the going gets tough.

Here is a daily prayer from the Raccolta that asks God for 9 special graces. These graces are simple, but they pinpoint areas in our lives that need extra help, especially if we plan on traversing the “narrow path” to Heaven.

O Father! O Son! O Holy Spirit!
O Holy Trinity! O Jesus! O Mary!
O blessed angels of God, all Saints of Paradise, men and women, obtain for me these graces, which I ask through the Precious Blood of Jesus Christ:
1. Ever to do the holy will of God.
2. Ever to live in union with God.
3. Not to think of anything but God.
4. To love God alone.
5. To do all for God.
6. To seek only the glory of God.
7. To sanctify myself solely for God.
8. To know well my own utter nothingness.
9. Ever to know more and more the will of my God.

Mary most holy, offer to the Eternal Father the most Precious Blood of Jesus Christ for my soul, for the holy souls in purgatory, for the needs of Holy Church, for the conversion of sinners, and for all the world.
