O Merciful Lord, Please remove any temptations that may present themselves to me at any hour of the day. Give me the strength to resist the enemy solid in my faith in you oh Lord and help me to walk and breath by your spirit. Oh, Holy Spirit, teach me how to lean on you in times of temptation always being aware of you. Renew my mind father and cleanse it from all my evil distractions and give me a new cherished heart oh God. We pray this through all the saints, all angels, my guardian angel, all the domestic powers of heaven, with the comfort and protection of our Lady, and her most chased spouse, St. Joseph, who with the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, Amen. - St. Padre Pio.
