A perfect prayer

"Lord, Jesus Christ, Son of God, have mercy on me, a sinner"

I came across this prayer while reading through the comments at some website or another and it struck me - I think this may be in essence a perfect prayer, or as perfect as any sinner can come up with. I've heard this is various forms, but this in its entirety is simple and beautiful. The longer I pray and try to be a "good Catholic" the more I see what a wretched sinner I am. May this be my "cry from the heart" Amen+
