Short effective prayers of St Philip Neri:
“Jesus, be a Jesus to me.”
“I cannot love you unless you help me, my Jesus.”
“My Jesus, if you want me, cut the fetters that keep me from you.”
Good advice from him:
“Cheerfulness strengthens the heart and makes us persevere in a good life. Therefore, the servant of God ought always to be in good spirits.”
