God's Call to Prayer at 3pm

Jesus died at 3pm, for you and for all mankind.  How can we possibly get through the hour of 3 without remembering?  Many Christians remember this hour every day as the hour of great mercy of Jesus' Love.

I am working to develop the habit of several prayers at 3pm each day.  I began with one prayer, and over the years I feel very certain God has called me to add more; I like to think He is purifying me.  The first prayer was the following:

Heavenly Father,

We give You our deepest praise and thanks
for sending our Lord Jesus Christ as Redeemer and Savior.

We ask that You help us remember, everyday,
at the hour of three, His escape through death
from His hours of dreadful torment on the Cross.

Help us truly appreciate His Love,
His Obedience, His Fortitude, and His Mercy
in following Your Will, even to death,
so that all mankind might know of Your Covenant
of Redemption, Resurrection, and Eternal Life.

We ask Your Blessing and Mercy
that Your Holy Spirit guide and strengthen us
to follow the Word and Model of our Lord Jesus,
to love, encourage, and assist our neighbors,
and to pray that we may join You, through Your Grace,
in Your Eternal Kingdom.

Amen

I pray each reader will be motivated to offer a prayer daily at 3pm, and at other, regular hours of the day as was suggested in my earlier blog.

My first additions to my daily 3pm prayer were a prayer of Examination of Conscience, and a prayer asking for forgiveness.  I am very seldom able to escape my most frequent sins; the most common are forgetting a  prayer, folly, sloth, gluttony, and not making a daily act of charity.  I cannot recall any day that I felt had done no sin, so every day I have prayed both the Examination of Conscience shown below and a prayer of confession discussed further in the following comment.

Examination of Conscience 

Heavenly Father, Divine Trinity,

I praise You and thank You

for Your Love, Your Grace, Your Mercy,

Your Foregiveness, and Your Redemption.

 

Help me examine my conscience

to identify my sins and temptations

and to despise them, resist them, and repent them.

 

Help me to understand and follow

the instructions and prohibitions

of my Lord Jesus Christ.

 

Forgive my sins, my omissions, and my errors,

and deliver me from evil and temptation,

I pray in the name of my Lord and Savior, Jesus.

Amen

Can anyone please explain how to edit this to avoid skipping lines here?

I pray daily at 3 pm either the Act of Contrition (below) for a major sin, or a Prayer against Selfishness (to be discussed in a later comment below).

Act of Contrition

Lord God, Father in Heaven,

I am truly sorry for all m sins, I repent with all my heart.

In choosing to do wrong, and failing to do good,

I have sinned against You, whom I Love and Honor above all things.

I firmly intend, with Your Help, to do penance,

to try harder to resist sin, and to avoid all that leads me to sin.

Our Savior, Jesus Christ, suffered and died for me and all mankind.

In His Name, O God, I ask for Your Mercy and Forgiveness.

Amen

Usually, for major sins, I make an additional impromptu prayer against the specific sin as penence, or search for an existent prayer, Scripture verse, or quotation.
