Jesus most merciful, in early infancy You began Your office of Savior by shedding Your Precious Blood and assuming for us that Name which is above all names. I thank You for such early proofs of Your infinite love.
I venerate Your sacred Name in union with the deep respect of the Angel who first announced it to the earth. I also unite my affections to the sentiments of tender devotion which Your adorable Name has, in all ages, enkindled in the hearts of Your servants.
Jesus, You said, "Whatever you ask the Father, He will give you in My Name" (John 16:23). I earnestly ask the Father in Your Name for an increase of faith, hope, and charity, and the grace to lead a good life and to die a happy death.
Jesus, You said, "Anything you ask Me in My Name I will do" (John 14:13). I earnestly ask You in Your Name to save my soul. I also ask in Your Name for the following favor: (Mention your request).
Jesus, Your most holy Name means "Savior". Be my Savior, dearest Jesus. Mercifully grant me through Your adorable Name—which is the joy of heaven, the terror of hell, the consolation of the afflicted, and the solid ground of my unlimited confidence—all the petitions I make in this prayer.
Blessed Mother of our Redeemer, you shared so closely in the suffering of your dear Son from the moment that He shed His Precious Blood and assumed for us the Name of Jesus, till His last breath on the Cross. Obtain for me and all those I love, as well as for all the faithful, the grace of eternal salvation through the holy Name of Jesus.
Beg also that a most ardent love for Your Divine Son may imprint that sacred Name upon our hearts; that it may be always in our minds, and frequently on our lips; that it may be our defense in temptation, our refuge in danger during our lives, and our consolation and support in the hour of death. Amen.
Good Jesus, according to Your great mercy, have mercy on me. Most merciful Jesus, by that Precious Blood which You willingly shed for sinners, I beg You to wash away all my sinfulness and to look graciously upon me, a poor and unworthy sinner, as I call upon Your holy Name. Therefore, Jesus, save me for the sake of Your holy Name.
God, You appointed Your only-begotten Son to be the Savior of mankind, and You commanded His Name to be called Jesus. Mercifully grant that we may enjoy the vision of Him in heaven, whose holy Name we venerate on earth. Through the same Christ our Lord. Amen.
O Lord, Jesus Christ, You have said: "Ask and you shall receive, seek and you shall find, knock and it shall be opened to you." Mercifully attend to our supplications and grant us the gift of Your Divine Charity. May we ever love You with our whole heart and with all our words and deeds. May we never cease praising You. Give us, O Lord, a perpetual fear and love of Your Holy Name, for You will never fail to help and govern those whom You bring up in Your steadfast fear and love; Who lives and reigns forever and ever. Amen.
