Actus Spei

The Act of Hope Prayer in Latin


The Act of Hope is a Catholic prayer that expresses the hope of the Christian that, relying on God's grace, he or she will endure in this life and make it to heaven. In spite of our sins, we hope in God, with whom all things are possible.

Actus Spei
Deus meus,
cum sis omnipotens,
infinite misericors et fidelis,
spero Te mihi daturum,
ob merita Iesu Christi,
vitam aeternam et gratias
necessarias ad eam consequendam,
quam Tu promisisti iis qui bona opera facient,
quemadmodum, Te adiuvante, facere constituo
