Prayer

Be not afraid.
I go before you always.
Come follow me,
and I will give you rest.

Prayer

Prayer for generosity

Lord, teach me to be generous,
to serve you as you deserve,
to give and not to count the cost,
to fight and not to heed the wounds,
to toil and not to seek for rest,
to labor and not to look for any reward,
save that of knowing that I do your holy will.

—St. Ignatius of Loyola

 

 

 

 

 


Prayer

Stir up in your Church, we pray, O Lord, the Spirit that filled Saint Josaphat as he laid down his life for the sheep, so that through his intercession we, too, may be strengthened by the same Spirit and not be afraid to lay down our life for others. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever.

—Collect prayer for the Memorial of St. Josephat, Bishop and Martyr

 

 

 


Prayer

Only in God is my soul at rest,
in him comes my salvation.
He, only, is my rock, my strength and my salvation.

My stronghold, my Savior,
I shall not be afraid at all.
My stronghold, my Savior,
I shall not be moved.

—Lyrics to Only in God by John Michael Talbot, © 1980 Birdwing Music/BMG Songs

 

 

 

 


Prayer

Lord God, 
help me to orient my life toward you.  
Help me to serve you rather than wealth.
Help me to prioritize those things that matter to you,
and forget about what the world values.
Help me to follow the path that you prepare for me.
Amen.

—The Jesuit Prayer team

 


Prayer

Lord my God, when your love spilled over into creation you thought of me. I am from love, of love, for love. Let my heart, O God, always recognize, cherish and enjoy your goodness in all of creation. Direct all that is me toward your praise.

Teach me reverence for every person, all things. Energize me in your service. Lord God, may nothing ever distract me from your love; neither health nor sickness, wealth nor poverty, honor nor dishonor, long life nor short life.

May I never seek nor choose to be other than what you intend or wish.

—St. Ignatius Loyola First Principle & Foundation, trans. Bergan & Schwan, 1985.

 

 

 

 


Prayer

Lord, you alone are my joy; your Cross is my consolation.

 —Bob Burnham

 

 

 

 


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.

—Suscipe of St. Ignatius of Loyola
