Author: Joseph of Jesus and Mary

Beloved Jesus Christ: my Lord, my King, my Savior, my God. You who are God, but also were man, who was tempted by the devil as any other human being, please give me the strength to reject sin and the grace to remain spotless as you are.
Reign in my heart with your Power, Wisdom, Love , Peace , Grace, Purity, Mercy, Glory and Joy.

You said to Satan:
HUMAN BEINGS LIVE NOT ON BREAD ALONE, BUT ON EVERY WORD THAT COMES FROM THE MOUTH OF GOD.
How many times I have failed you my Lord, when I didn’t obey your commandments, I have rejected you my King when I allowed the enticements of this world to reign in my heart, I have forgotten you my God when my mind has been full of the things of the world.
My Lord and my God, give me hunger for your living bread, feed me with your Word and with the Sacrament of your flesh and blood. Give me the strength to control the appetite of my senses, purify and nourish my soul with your food, which is to do the will o f the Heavenly Father.

You said to Satan:
YOU MUST DO HOMAGE TO THE LORD YOUR GOD, HIM ALONE YOU MUST SERVE.
How many times the riches of this world, the temptations of pride, greed , envy , jealousy and egoism have dethroned you my God from my heart.
I sincerely repent of this insult to your Majesty.
Jesus, give me the grace to be able to reject the things of this world, to detach myself from all that is around me, and to cling strongly to your spirit within me.
I love you with all my heart, with all my mind, with all my soul, with all my strength and with the spirit you have given me.
I worship and obey you my Lord, I honor you my King, I praise you and bless you, and my heart is full of thanksgiving.
I will serve you by loving my brothers and sisters and with your strength I will conquer the world, the devil and the flesh.

You said to Satan:
DO NOT PUT THE LORD YOUR GOD TO THE TEST.
Jesus, whenever I have sinned, I have thrown my soul against the rocks of death, wounding it mortally. I have put you to the test. Jesus, you the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world, by your wounds heal my body, my mind and my soul.
Jesus, I have offended you many times, please forgive me my sins. Wash away my iniquities, cleanse me from my sin, purify me, protect me and save me with your precious blood, sanctify me with your Holy Spirit, re-make me once more win your true image.
Jesus, in the presence of the Immaculate Heart of Mary please tell me now: This is your mother.
Holy Mother of God, my mother, protect me, guide me and nourish me with the heavenly bread that you have given to the world.
Cover me with your maternal mantle of purity that I may always say NO to the temptations of your adversary, the enemy of my soul.
