Short Prayers to the Most Holy Name
O sweet Name of Jesus, holy above all names in heaven and on
earth, and to which every knee, both of men and of angels in heaven,
on earth and in hell bends. You are the the way of the just, the
glory of the saints, the hope of those in need, the balm of the
sick, the love of the devout and the consolation of those that
O, Jesus be to me a help and a protector so that your Name may
be blessed for all times…
.....(Manualis Parvulorum XIII) Thomas A. Kempis
The Golden Arrow
May the most holy, most sacred, most adorable, most mysterious
and unutterable Name of God be always praised, blessed, loved,
adored and glorified in heaven on earth and under the earth, by
all the creatures of God, and by the Sacred Heart of our Lord
Jesus Christ in the most Holy Sacrament of the altar.
This prayer is said to have been revealed by Jesus Himself to
a Carmelite Nun of Tours in 1843 as a reparation for blasphemy.
"This Golden Arrow will wound My Heart delightfully,"
He said, "and heal the wounds inflicted by blasphemy."
Prayer to the Holy Name - St. Alphonsus
O my Jesus, thou art the Savior who hast given Thy blood and
Thy life for me, I pray Thee to write Thy adorable name on my
poor heart; so that having it always imprinted in my heart by
love, I may also have it ever on my lips, by invoking it in all
my necessities. If the devil tempts me, Thy name will give me
strength to resist him; if I lose confidence, Thy name will animate
me to hope; if I lose confidence, Thy name will animate me to
hope; if I am in affliction, Thy name will comfort me, by reminding
me of all Thou hast endured for me. If I find myself cold in Thy
love, Thy name will inflame me by reminding me of the love Thou
hast shown me. I have fallen into so many sins, because I did
not call on Thee; from henceforth Thy name shall be my defense,
my refuge, my hope, my only consolation, my only love. Thus do
I hope to live, and so do I hope to die, having Thy name always
on my lips.

Jesus, Name full of glory, grace, love and strength! You are

life, the medicine of souls, the comfort of those who morn, the
delight of those who believe, the light of those who preach the
true faith, the wages of those who toil, the healing of the sick.

glory of all the saints for eternity. Amen.

mankind, and You commanded His Name to be Jesus. I beg that a

my consolation and strength in the hour of my death.

Most Merciful Jesus, by that Precious Blood which you willingly
shed for sinners, I beg You to wash away all my sinfulness and

upon Your Holy Name. Mercifully grant me, through Your adorable
Name, which is the joy of heaven, the terror of hell, the consolation
of the afflicted, the refuge of sinners and the strength of those
who repent, the grace of eternal salvation through the holy Name
