Confession Prayers

Prayer Before Confession
Dear Jesus, help me to make a good Confession,
Help me to find out my sins,
Help me to be sorry for them,
Help me to make up my mind not to sin again.
have mercy on me, O Lord, and forgive me.
Mary, my mother, pray for me.

Confiteor
I confess to almighty God,
and to you, my brothers and sisters
that I have sinned through my own fault
in my thoughts and in my words,
in what I have done, and in what I have failed to do;
and I ask blessed Mary, ever virgin,
all the angels and saints,
and you, my brothers and sisters,
to pray for me to the Lord our God.

Act of Contrition
O my God, I am very sorry for all my sins,
because they offend you who are so good,
and with your help I will not sin again.

Prayer After Confession
Dear Jesus,
thank you for helping me to make a good Confession,
and thank you for taking away my sins.
Help me, dear Jesus, never to offend you again.
Mary, my mother, pray to Jesus for me.
My dear Angel Guardian help me.
