Prayer to fulfilling the will of God
‘Lord, if it be your will, so let it be, and if it be to Your honor, let it be fulfilled in Your name. Lord, if this be for my good, give me the grace to use it for your honor, but if you know that it will be harmful to me and not profitable for the good of my soul, then take away from me such a desire.’
‘O most merciful Jesus, grant me Your grace, that it may remain with me always and persevere with me to the end. Grant me always to will and desire what is most pleasing and acceptable to you. Let Your will be mine and let my will always follow Yours in perfect conformity with it. Let my will and desires always be one with Yours’ and let me be unable to will or not to will except as You will or do not will.'
'Grant that I may die to all worldly things and that I may be despised and unknown for love of you. Grant, above all things to be desired, that I may find rest in you, and that in Your heart alone may be my peace. You, O lord give true peace to the heart and perfect rest to the body and soul. Apart from You, all is difficult and never still. In that peace, in You who are the one, supreme and eternal God, I will sleep and take my rest (Psalm 4:9)’ Amen
