Prayer to St. Pio of Pietrelcina after Holy Communion - Stay with me, Lord

Stay with me, Lord, for it is necessary to have
     You present so that I do not forget You.
     You know how easily I abandon You.
Stay with me, Lord, because I am weak
     and I need Your strength, 
     that I may not fall so often.
Stay with me, Lord, for You are my life, 
     and without You, I am without fervor.
Stay with me, Lord, for You are my light,
     and without You, I am in darkness.
Stay with me, Lord, to show me Your will.
Stay with me, Lord, so that I hear Your voice
     and follow You.
Stay with me, Lord, for I desire to love You
     very much, and always be in Your company.
   Stay with me, Lord, if You wish me to be faithful to You.
   Stay with me, Lord, for as poor as my soul is, 
        I want it to be a place of consolation for You, a nest of love.
   Stay with me, Jesus, for it is getting late and the day is coming to a close, and life passes;
        death, judgment, eternity approaches. It is necessary to renew my strength,
        so that I will not stop along the way and for that, I need You.
        It is getting late and death approaches,
        I fear the darkness, the temptations, the dryness, the cross, the sorrows. 
        O how I need You, my Jesus, in this night of exile!
   Stay with me tonight, Jesus, in life with all itís dangers need You.
Let me recognize You as Your disciples did at the breaking of the bread so that the Eucharistic Communion be the Light which disperses the darkness,
 the force which sustains me, the unique joy of my heart.

   Stay with me, Lord, because at the hour of my death, I want to remain united to You,
        if not by communion, at least by grace and love.

   Stay with me, Jesus, I do not ask for divine consolation, because I do not merit it,
        but the gift of Your Presence, oh yes, I ask this of You!

   Stay with me, Lord, for it is You alone I look for, Your Love, Your Grace, Your Will, Your Heart,
        Your Spirit, because I love You and ask no other reward but to love You more and more.

   With a firm love, I will love You with all my heart while on earth and continue to love You perfectly during all eternity.    Amen

Prayer for the Intercession of St. Pio of Pietrelcina

Dear God, You generously blessed Your servant,
   St. Pio of Pietrelcina, with the gifts of the Spirit.
   You marked his body with the five wounds
   of Christ Crucified, as a powerful witness
   to the saving Passion and Death of Your Son.
   Endowed with the gift of discernment,
   St. Pio labored endlessly in the confessional
   for the salvation of souls.
   With reverence and intense devotion
   in the celebration of Mass,
   he invited countless men and women
   to a greater union with Jesus Christ
   in the Sacrament of the Holy Eucharist.

Through the intercession of St. Pio of Pietrelcina,
   I confidently beseech You to grant me
   the grace of (here state your petition).    Amen.
Glory be to the Father... (three times).

A Prayer for Trust and Confidence in God's Mercy
by St. Pio of Pietrelcina

O Lord,
   we ask for a boundless confidence
   and trust in Your divine mercy,
   and the courage to accept
   the crosses and sufferings
   which bring immense goodness
   to our souls and that of Your Church.
Help us to love You
   with a pure and contrite heart,
   and to humble ourselves beneath Your cross,
   as we climb the mountain of holiness,
   carrying our cross that leads to heavenly glory.
May we receive You
   with great faith and love in Holy Communion,
   and allow You to act in us as You desire
   for your greater glory.
O Jesus, most adorable Heart
   and eternal fountain of Divine Love, 
   may our prayer find favor before 
   the Divine Majesty of Your heavenly Father.

A Prayer to Jesus by St. Pio of Pietrelcina

     Lord, God of my heart,
     You alone know and see all my troubles.
     You alone are aware that all my distress
     springs from my fear of losing You,
     of offending You,
     from my fear of not loving You
     as much as I should love and desire to love You.
     If You, to whom everything is present
     and who alone can see the future,
     know that it is for Your greater glory
     and for my salvation
     that I should remain in this state,
     then let it be so.
     I donít want to escape from it.
     Give me the strength to fight
     and to obtain the prize due to strong souls.
