"My Daily Prayer" comes to you as one of God's children. God is your kind, merciful, and loving Father. He is the most understanding and the most forgiving of all fathers. He really cares for you. He loves you; and He wants you to know Him, love Him, and serve Him in this world and be perfectly happy, for all eternity, in the world to come. This is your longing desire - the salvation of your soul - after all, the only thing that counts. "My Daily Prayer" will be for you a wonderful help in attaining this all-important end. Say it earnestly and fervently. Make it a real prayer. Let every word come from your heart. Say it every day. May God bless your efforts!

I BELIEVE in one God. I believe that God rewards the good, and punishes the wicked.
I BELIEVE that in God there are three Divine Persons - God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.
I BELIEVE that God the Son became Man, without ceasing to be God. I believe that He is my Lord and my Saviour Jesus Christ, the Redeemer of the human race, Who died on the Cross for the salvation of all men, Who died also for me.
I BELIEVE, on God's authority, everything that He has taught and revealed.
O MY GOD, give me strong faith. O my God, help me to believe with lively faith.
O MY GOD, relying on Your almighty power and infinite mercy and promises, I sincerley hope to be saved. Help me to do all that is necessary for my salvation.
I HAVE committed many sins in my life, but now I turn away from them, and hate them. I am sorry, truly sorry for all of them, because I have offended You, my God, Who art all-good, all-perfect, all-holy, all-merciful - my kind and loving Father.
I LOVE You, O my God, with all my heart. Forgive me, I implore You, for having offended You.
I PROMISE, O God, that with Your help I will never offend You again.
MY GOD, HAVE MERCY ON ME.
