Prayer in Honor of the Holy Name of Jesus

Lord Jesus,
we humbly pray You to give us all a great reverence
and respect for Your most holy name.
Forgive us for ever having used your name in vain,
or without due respect.

Help us remember how reverently and lovingly,
Your Mother Mary used the name of Jesus,
and how humbly Saint Joseph called You
and spoke to You by name.

Your name, dear Jesus,
is above every other name in heaven or on earth,
because You are the Jesus,
the Savior of all men.
You have saved us,
and You have told us to ask God anything in Your name,
and it would be granted.

We ask You,
humbly and confidently,
to bless us and our work,
and give us the rich treasures of Your Divine grace,
without which we cannot even so much as pronounce the name of Jesus. Amen.
