out to God. Consecration is about dedicating yourself not only to God, but to the wonderful plan and destiny God has for you!

Prayer Of Consecration, Dedication And Submission
Prayer Of Consecratiion To Saint Michael The Archangel
valorous warrior of Almighty God,
and zealous lover of His glory,
terror of the rebellious angels,
and love and delight of all the just ones,
my beloved Archangel Saint Michael,
desiring to be numbered among your devoted servants,
I, today offer and consecrate myself to you,
and place myself, my family,
and all I possess under your most powerful protection.I entreat you not to look at how little, I,
as your servant have to offer,
being only a wretched sinner,
but to gaze, rather,
with favorable eye at the heartfelt affection
with which this offering is made,
and remember that if from this day onward
I am under your patronage,
you must during all my life assist me,
and procure for me the pardon of my many grievous offenses, and sins,
the grace to love with all my heart my God,
my dear Saviour Jesus and my Sweet Mother Mary,
and obtain for me all the help necessary to arrive to my crown of glory.Defend me always from my spiritual enemies,
particularly in the last moments of my life.Come then oh Glorious Prince and succour me in my last struggle,
and with your powerful weapon
cast far from me into the infernal abysses that prevaricator and proud angel
that one day you prostrated in the celestial battle.
Saint Michael, defend us in our daily battle
so that we may not perish in the last Judgement.
Prayer Of Consecration To The Most Precious Blood
O Jesus, my Beloved Saviour,
ever present in the Tabernacle,
to be the strength,
the joy and the food of souls,
I come to consecrate myself to Thy Precious Blood,
and to pledge Thee my sincere love and fidelity.
Pierced with sorrow at the remembrance of Thy sufferings,
the contemplation of the Cross,
and the thought of the outrages
and contempt lavished by ungrateful souls
upon Thy dear Blood,
I long, O my Jesus,
to bring joy to Thy Heart,
and to make Thee forget my sins,
and those of the whole world,
by consecrating my body and soul to Thy service.
I desire, my Jesus, to live henceforth,
only by Thy Blood and for Thy Blood.
I now choose It as my greatest treasure
and the dearest object of my love.O merciful Redeemer,
deign to regard me as a perpetual adorer
of Thy Most Precious Blood,
and be pleased to accept my prayers,
my deeds and my sacrifices,
as so many acts of reparation and love.Heavenly Wine,
giver of purity and strength,
pour down upon my soul.
Make of my heart a living chalice
from which grace shall constantly flow
on those that love Thee,
and especially on poor sinners that offend Thee.
Teach me to honour Thee
and to make Thee honoured by others.
Give me power to draw to Thee cold and hardened hearts,
that they may feel how infinitely
Thy consolations surpass those of the world.O Blood of my Crucified Saviour,
detach me from the world,
and the spirit of the world.
Make me love suffering and sacrifice,
after the example of St. Catherine of Sienna,
who loved Thee so much
[and whom I choose again today as my special patroness].
O Precious Blood,
be my strength amid the trials and struggles of exile.
Grant that at the hour of death
I may be able to bless Thee
for having been the comfort
and the sanctification of my soul,
before becoming, in Heaven,
the everlasting object of my love and praise.
Saints of God,
who owe thy happiness to the Blood of Jesus;
who sing Its glory and power,
who to It owest the privileges
of thine Immaculate Conception
and Divine Maternity,
help me to pay to the Precious Blood of my Redeemer
a perpetual homage of adoration,
reparation and thanksgiving.
Prayer For Consecration Of Your Life
I seek You, Lord Jesus. You are everything to me. You have all the answers I need to every problem I face. In You is everything I need to finish my course with joy.
Forgive me for playing games with You. Please deliver me from complacency and make Yourself real to me. Help me become so established and rooted in You that I stand tall and persevere over every attack of the enemy.
Father, I also seek to know You in a greater way. I cannot live without Your presence. Cause me to so hunger for You, Your Word, and Your power that I am never satisfied. Make my heart soft and pliable. Cause me to yearn and long for You. Fill me again with Your Spirit. Be nearer to me and dearer to me than I’ve ever experienced before.
Father, only You can meet the very deepest desires of my total nature. So I ask You to quicken me with Your presence. Help me lay hold of more eternal life. I know, Father, that it’s a progression. I know that from this day forward, I will move upward until that day when I come and bow before Your throne.
Lord, I know that hungering after You is the only way I will have all of You. It’s the only way I will wake up and arise to be a part of that spiritual army You are calling forth in this day.
What an awesome call that is, Father. To think that You want to use me, that You want Your glory to shine through me. What an awesome responsibility! Please help me to always walk worthy of what You have called me to do.
So thank You, Father, for trusting me. Thank You for changing me into what You want me to be and for making me into the image of Your Son. In Jesus’ name, amen.

Prayer For Consecration Of The Sick To Blessed Mary
whose own soul was pierced by the sword of sorrow,
look upon us while,
in our sickness,
we arraign ourselves beside you
on the Calvary where your Jesus hangs.Dowered with the high grace of suffering,
and hopeful of fulfilling in our own flesh
what is wanting in our sharing of Christ’s passion,
on behalf of his Mystical Body, the Church,
we consecrate to you ourselves and our pain.
We pray that you will place them
on that Altar of the Cross to which Jesus is affixed.
May they be little victims of propitiation for our salvation,
for the salvation of all peoples.O Mother of Sorrows,
accept this consecration.
Strengthen our hopeful hearts,
that as partakers of Christ’s sufferings
we may also share in his comfort now and for evermore.Amen.
