The Suspice or “Take, Lord, and Receive” Prayer is one of the most well known Ignatian prayers. It captures the essence of one of the closing meditations in the Spiritual Exercises called the Contemplation for Learning to Love Like God: Full discipleship with Christ, full understanding that life is gift given to us by God, and full love of God by returning all that we have to God, so we may do what God asks of us.
Thanks to Mike Hayes for sharing this beautiful song and video version of this prayer! I am very proud to call Mike a friend, and I am even more proud of the Sapientia Award he received at Fordham University for his service to the church in the realm of young adult ministry.
I pray this every morning! Thanks for sharing this beautiful version…
I too pray this prayer daily! I had never seen it put to pictures with the song like this.
