Prayer of St. Ambrose before Mass
Lord Jesus Christ, We approach your banquet table
as saints and sinners, and dare not rely on our own worth,
but only on your goodness and mercy.
Gracious God of majesty and awe, We seek your protection,
We look for your healing. We appeal to you,
the fountain of all mercy. Lord Jesus Christ, eternal king,
crucified for us, look upon us with mercy
and hear our prayer, for we trust in you.
Merciful Father, purify us in body and soul,
and make us worthy to taste the Holy of Holies.
May your body and blood, which we intend to receive,
unworthy as we are, be for us the remission of our sins,
the washing away of our guilt, the end of our evil thoughts,
and the rebirth of our better instincts.
May it incite us to do the works pleasing to you
and profitable to our health in body and soul,
and may it deliver us from evil. Amen.
