Silent Prayer at the Creed During the Catholic Mass
Prayer at the Creed
I believe, O Lord,
all Thou hast taught me by Thy holy Church;
in this faith, by the assistance of his grace,
I desire to live and die;
by Thy divine grace,
I am convinced of the
sincerity and wisdom of those who have delivered
these sacred truths to me.
Their miraculous success is a sufficient proof.
Where shall I go my Lord?
Thou hast the words of eternal life.
Of Thy truth, thus delivered,
my reason and will shall never doubt,
though my senses and vain imaginations should.
I believe, O Lord, help my unbelief.
The Prayer at the Creed can be prayed silently during the Catholic Mass just before we pray the Apostles’ Creed aloud. In this prayer, we profess our faith in God and His Church and give thanks for those who shared the faith with the world. We echo Peter’s words, “Where shall I go my Lord? Thou hast the words of eternal life.” In the final part of the prayer, we ask God to help our unbelief. May we always turn to God in His mercy and love and trust in Him to help us.
