Padre Pio Prayers

Padre Pio’s Prayer for Trust and Confidence

O Lord, we ask for a boundless confidence and trust in Your divine mercy, and the courage to accept the crosses and sufferings which bring immense goodness to our souls and that of Your Church. Help us to love You with a pure and contrite heart, and to humble ourselves beneath Your cross, as we climb the mountain of holiness, carrying our cross that leads to heavenly glory. May we receive You with great faith and love in Holy Communion, and allow You to act in us as You desire for your greater glory. O Jesus, most adorable Heart and eternal fountain of Divine Love, may our prayer find favor before the Divine Majesty of Your heavenly Father.

All you nations clap your hands * shout to God with a voice of gladness. For the Lord, the Most High * the Awesome, is the Great King over all the earth. For the Most Holy Father of heaven, our King before all ages * sent His Beloved Son from on high+ and has brought salvation in the midst of the earth. Let the heavens rejoice and the earth exult* let the sea and all that is in it be moved+ let the fields and all that is in them be glad. Sing a new song to Him * Sing to the Lord all the earth. Because the Lord is great and highly to be praised * awesome beyond all gods. Give to the Lord, you families of nations,† Give to the Lord glory and honour * Give to the Lord the glory due His name. Take up your bodies and carry His holy cross * and follow His most holy commands even to the end. Let the whole earth tremble before His face * tell among the nations that the Lord has ruled from a tree. He ascended into heaven† and is seated at the right hand of the most holy Father in heaven * O God, be exalted above the heavens+ and above all the earth be your glory. We know that He is coming* that He will come to judge justice….[/vc_column_text][/mpc_accordion_tab][mpc_accordion_tab title=”PRAYER TO THE TRINITY”][vc_column_text]Fear and honour,
