Prayer

Take, Lord, and receive all my liberty,
my memory, my understanding,
and my entire will,
All I have and call my own.
You have given all to me.
To you, Lord, I return it.
Everything is yours; do with it what you will.
Give me only your love and your grace,
that is enough for me.

—St. Ignatius of Loyola

 

 

 

  

 

 

 

 


Prayer

Our Father in Heaven, your name is holy. Let us experience your kingdom on earth by doing your will. Give us what we need today and make us more aware of the needs of others. Give us the grace to forgive and to ask forgiveness. Help us recognize the temptations of evil and to praise you forever. For yours are the kingdom, the power and the glory, forever and ever. Amen.   

—Barbara Lee

How do you, Lord, look at me?

Jesus, Prince of Peace,
you have asked us to love our enemies
and pray for those who persecute us.
We pray for our enemies and those who oppose us.
With the help of the Holy Spirit,
may all people learn to work together
for that justice which brings true and lasting peace.
To you be glory and honor for ever and ever.  

—Prayer for our Enemies, from the USCCB website

Prayer

I am no longer my own, but yours. 
Put me to what you will, rank me with whom you will; 
put me to doing, put me to suffering; 
let me be employed for you, or laid aside for you, 
exalted for you, or brought low for you; 
let me be full, 
let me be empty, 
let me have all things, 
let me have nothing.

—Excerpt from the Wesley Covenant Prayer

 

 

 

 


Prayer

Be silent. 
Be still. 
Alone. 
Empty 
before your God. 
Say nothing. 
Ask nothing. 
Be silent. 
Be still. 
Let your God look upon you. 
That is all. 
God knows. 
God understands. 
God loves you with an enormous love 
and only wants to look upon you 
with that generous love. 
Quiet. 
Be still. 
Let your God love you.

—Edwina Gately

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


Prayer

Heavenly Father, give me a pure heart. Give me a heart that is big enough to let go of resentments and grievances, a heart that is able to forgive and to ask forgiveness. Give me a heart to love as Jesus loved—as Jesus loves.

—Barbara Lee

 

 

 

 

 


Prayer

We love you O, our God;
And we desire to love you more and more.
Grant to us that we may love you as much as we desire, and as much as we ought.
O Dearest Friend, who has so loved and saved us,
The thought of whom is so sweet and always growing sweeter,
Come with Christ and dwell in our hearts;
Then you will keep a watch over our lips, our steps, our deeds,
And we shall not need to be anxious either for our souls or our bodies.
Give us love, sweetest of all gifts, which knows no enemy.
Give us in our hearts pure love born of your love to us
That we may love others as you love us.
O most loving Father of Jesus Christ, from whom flows all love,
Let our hearts frozen in sin, cold to you and cold to others, be warmed by this divine fire.
So help and bless us in your Son.
Amen.

—St. Anselm
