O Good Jesus! O most tender Jesus! O most sweet Jesus! O Jesus, Son of Mary the Virgin, full of mercy and kindness! O sweet Jesus, according to Thy great mercy, have pity on me! O most merciful Jesus, I entreat Thee by that Precious Blood of Thine, which Thou didst will to pour forth for sinners, to wash away all my iniquities, and to look upon me, poor and unworthy as I am, humbly asking pardon of Thee, and invoking this Holy Name of Jesus.
O Name of Jesus, sweet Name! Name of Jesus, Name of joy! Name of Jesus, Name of strength! Nay, what meaneth the Name of Jesus but Saviour? Wherefore, O Jesus, by Thine own holy Name, be to me Jesus, and save me.
Suffer me not to be lost–me, whom Thou didst create out of nothing.
O good Jesus, let not my iniquity destroy what Thy almighty goodness made.
O sweet Jesus, recognize what is Thine own, and wipe away from me what is not of Thee! O most kind Jesus, have pity on me while it is the time of pity, and condemn me not when it is the time of judgment.
The dead shall not praise Thee, Lord Jesus, nor all those who go down into hell.
O most loving Jesus! O Jesus, most longed for by Thine own! O most gentle Jesus! Jesus, Jesus, Jesus, let me enter into the number of Thine elect.
O Jesus, salvation of those who believe in Thee; Jesus, Son of Mary the Virgin, pour into me grace, wisdom, charity, chastity, and humility that I may be able perfectly to love Thee, to enjoy Thee, to serve Thee, and make my boast in Thee, together with all those who invoke Thy name, which is Jesus. Amen.

Habits die hard. What’s more is that habits can be formed! Did you ever think of giving as a habit? When people think of giving, the automatic reflex is to think of monetary gifts. But giving is so much more than that. Giving at its core is an act of love… a natural reflex, a habit that can be developed and when developed can become an addiction. If you are tired of books about “tithing” but rather want to understand what it means to “give,” and the role of giving in a Christian’s life, this book Addicted to G.I.V.I.N.G: The Habit of Handover is the answer you have sought a long time.
