Favorite Prayers


Take, Lord, and receive

All my liberty, my memory, my understanding, my entire will.

All that I have and call my own,

You have given it all to me.

To you, Lord, I return it.

Do with it what you will.

Give me only your love and your grace, that is enough for me.


Oscar Romero’s Prayer:  “I can’t.  You must.  I’m yours.  Show me the way.”


Prayer for Light and Help

Jesus, I feel within me
a great desire to please you
but, at the same time,
I feel totally incapable of doing this
without your special light and help,
which I can expect only from you.
Accomplish your will in me –
even in spite of me
~St. Claude la Colombiere, S.J.
