THE GIFT OF PRAYER
“Lord, Jesus, give me the gift of prayer.
Take me by the hand and help me out
of the dark alleys of myself.
You who intercede incessantly for me,
teach me to find you,
to converse with you,
to rest in you,
in true friendship.
Grant me to look anew
upon your Presence
In my heart and in my activities,
In my neighbour
and in the suffering of the world.
I am willing
to be an instrument of your Spirit
in your Father’s world.
I love you, Lord”
