Here are some Catholic prayers that can be recited before and after confession:

Before Confession:

  1. Act of Contrition:

“O my God, I am heartily sorry for having offended You and I detest all my sins because of Your just punishments, but most of all because they offend You, my God, who are all-good and deserving of all my love. I firmly resolve, with the help of Your grace, to sin no more and to avoid the near occasions of sin. Amen.”

  1. Prayer of Preparation for Confession:

“My Lord Jesus Christ, who died for my sins, I come to you now in humble repentance. Please forgive me for all the times I have turned away from You and disobeyed Your commands. I am truly sorry for my sins and ask for the grace to make a good confession. Please help me to confess all my sins honestly and to receive Your forgiveness with a contrite heart. Amen.”

3. Prayer for Mercy:

“Lord, have mercy on me, a sinner. I come before You in humility and ask for Your forgiveness for all my sins. Help me to recognize and confess my sins honestly and with contrition, and to receive Your mercy and grace with a grateful heart. Amen.”

4. Prayer for Guidance:

“Heavenly Father, I ask for Your guidance and wisdom as I prepare for confession. Please help me to examine my conscience thoroughly, to confess my sins sincerely, and to receive Your forgiveness and healing. May Your Holy Spirit guide me in this sacrament of reconciliation and lead me to a deeper relationship with You. Amen.”

After Confession:

Help me to grow in virtue and to love You more each day. I entrust my life to Your loving care and ask for Your blessings on me and on all those whom I love. Amen.”

3. Prayer for Purity:
