Three Devout and Profitable Prayers

Together with three Our Father’s and three Hail Mary’s,
to be recited for the dying in their last agony.

Lord, have mercy on us. Christ, have mercy on us. Lord, have mercy on us.
Our Father. Hail Mary.

O Lord Jesus Christ, through Thy most sacred agony and prayer, wherein Thou madest supplication for us on Mount Olivet, when Thy sweat became as drops of blood trickling down upon the ground; vouchsafe, I beseech thee, to offer and present to God the Father Almighty, for the abundance of all the sins of this thy servant N., the abundance of Thy bloody sweat, which, from anguish to fear, Thou didst shed so profusely for us; and deliver him at this his hour of death from all the pain and anguish which, for his sins, he fears he has deserved. Who, with the Father and the Holy Ghost, liveth and reigneth God, forever and ever. Amen.

Lord, have mercy on us. Christ, have mercy on us. Lord, have mercy on us.
Our Father. Hail Mary.

O Lord Jesus Christ, who didst vouchsafe to die on the cross for us; vouchsafe, I beseech Thee, to offer and present to God the Father Almighty, for the soul of this Thy servant N., all the bitterness of the pains and sufferings, which Thou endurest on the cross for us miserable sinners, and chiefly at that hour when Thy most holy Soul departed out of Thy sacred Body; and deliver him at this his hour of death from all the pain and anguish which, for his sins, he fears he has deserved. Who, with the Father and the Holy Ghost, liveth and reigneth God, forever and ever. Amen.

Lord, have mercy on us. Christ, have mercy on us. Lord, have mercy on us.
Our Father. Hail Mary.

O Lord Jesus Christ, who, by the mouth of the Prophet, hast said; I have loved thee with an everlasting love, therefore have I drawn thee to Myself, taking pity on thee (Jeremiah 31:3), –vouchsafe, I beseech Thee, to offer and present to God the Father Almighty, for the soul of this Thy servant N., that same love which drew Thee down from heaven to earth, to bear the bitterness of Thy sufferings; and deliver him from all the pains and sufferings which, for his sins he fears he hath deserved. Oh, save his soul at this hour of its departure. Open to him the gate of life, and make him to rejoice with Thy saints in glory everlasting. O Lord Jesus Christ most merciful, who did redeem us by Thy most precious Blood, have mercy on the soul of this Thy servant, and vouchsafe to admit it into the ever-verdant gardens of Paradise, that it may live to Thee in that inseparable love, by which Thou are bound to Thine elect, and they to Thee eternally. Who, with the Father and the Holy Ghost, liveth and reigneth God, forever and ever. Amen.
