Short Prayer to the Trinity


Painting above: The Holy Trinity, with the Virgin and Saint John and donors (Italian: Santa Trinità) is a fresco by the Early Italian Renaissance painter Masaccio. It is located in the Dominican church of Santa Maria Novella, in Florence. In the painting, the Son is on the Cross, the Father is behind him, and the Holy Spirit is above the Son’s head, in the form of a small white dove. Massacio (1401-1428) was a Florentine artist who is regarded as the first great Italian painter of the Quattrocento period of the Italian Renaissance. According to Vasari, Masaccio was the best painter of his generation because of his skill at imitating nature, recreating lifelike figures and movements as well as a convincing sense of three-dimensionality.

This short prayer to the Trinity which I composed for inclusion in my daily prayers is the tenth prayer of the 10 morning prayers I have shared in my Morning Prayers page in the Morning Prayers tab above.


Heavenly Father, I pray that I may live this day in your presence and please you more and more.

Lord Jesus, Son of God, I pray that this day I may take up my cross and follow you. Luke 9:23 (English Standard Version)

Holy Spirit, I pray that this day you will fill me with yourself and cause your fruit to ripen in my life: “love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.” Galatians 5:22 (English Standard Version).
