State Prayer - "Act of Faith"

O my God, I firmly believe that You are one God in three divine Persons, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. I believe that Your divine Son became man, died for our sins, and that He will come to judge the living and the dead. I believe these truths which the Holy Catholic Church teaches, because You have revealed them, Who can never deceive nor be deceived.
Amen.
