Various Prayers

Teach Me, My Lord

Teach me, my Lord,

to be serene and gentle in all the events of life,

in disappointments,

in the thoughtfulness of others,

in the insincerity of those, I trusted,

in the unfaithfulness of those on whom I relied.

 

Let me put myself aside

to think of the happiness of others,

to hide my personal pains and heartaches

so that they may not diminish the joy of others.

 

As I go my rounds from one duty to another,

let me, from time to time,

turn my attention to you;

help me to be aware of your continual presence

by my side, to listen to your continual presence

by my side, to listen to you discerningly

and to respond to you faithfully.

 

May my life become permeated with your spirit.

May it remain strong in its purpose

of following you,

and become full of power for good

to the great consolation

of your divine heart

and the edification of your people. Amen.
