This short and easy prayer is a great way to start your day.

Sometimes we can think that God only listens to long, drawn-out prayers. However, what Jesus truly wants is “a contrite, humbled heart, O God, you will not scorn” (Psalm 51:19).

Here is a short prayer from St. Peter Julian Eymard that is easy to memorize, with a simple rhyme that accents its beautiful words.

O sweet Jesus, your goodness and your might
Have brought me to this morning’s light.
Keep and preserve me every hour,
From sorrow, sin, temptation’s power.
Grant me your blessing, Lord, this day,
On all I think and do and say.
Jesus for your help I plead.
Mary for me intercede.
