Prayer for keeping the faith


KimDoveFlyer

Gracious and Holy Father,

Please give me:

intellect to understand you,

reason to discern you,

diligence to seek you,

wisdom to find you,

a spirit to know you,

a heart to meditate upon you,

ears to hear you,

eyes to see you,

a tongue to proclaim you,

a way of life pleasing to you,

patience to wait for you,

and perseverance to look for you.

Grant me a perfect end, your holy presence, a blessed resurrection and life everlasting.

Amen.

St. Benedict of Nursia, ca. 480-547
