Prayer to Jesus to be free (Bishop Jean-Baptiste Proya)
Jesus, my very meek Savior, I am here standing a front of You as these poor people tormented by the devil, you have met on the roads of Palestine.
I admire your kindness and your delicacy towards me. I admire also your Divine Power. You have threatened the unclean spirits, and have chased them away from men whom You have restored hearing, sight, speech, and moreover You have given your Peace and Your grace. O my Jesus, me too, I feel wounded and opressed by the devil’s tricks who troubles me during my daily life or during the night, prevents me to fullfill my duty of state, and moreover, tempts me to go away from You by abandonning religious practice and the Christian faith.
I beleive in You, Jesus ! You are the Son of our heavenly father, Begotten and of one Being with Him. With the Father and the Holy Spirit, You are the only true God Almighty and Mercyful, who live and reign unto eternal ages of ages. To free us from slavery to sin and from devil tyranny, You have took on our human nature, You have preached the Gospel of Salvation, You have accepted the Will of the Father, Passion and Death. Your have poured your adorable Blood, to give us our divine filiation (by participation) and incorporate You like brothers.
I adore You, O my Jesus, and I thank you for all You have done for me and for all men, gathered together in your unique Church, Arch of Salvation. I humbly supply You, O my Redeemer, make myself and my whole family be completely free from perverse influences of the devil. . Renew in us the feeling of your presence and give us joy to taste your sweetness.
Make us be submitted to your divine commandments, with serenity, fervor and persevreance, attain the eternal happiness of heaven, where we will sing with the Angels and the Saints the hymn of adoration : « Holy, Holy, Holy Lord God of hosts.Heaven and earth are full of your glory. Hosanna in the highest. »
So be it.
