A Prayer for the Acceptance of God's Will
Lord, I do not know what to ask of You.
You alone know what my real needs are.
You love me more than I myself know how to love.
Help me to see my real needs which are hidden from me.
I am afraid to ask for either a cross or consolation.
I can only wait on You. My heart is open to You.
Visit me and help me for the sake of Your great mercy.
Strike me and heal me, cast me down and raise me up.
In silence I worship Your holy will and Your ways which are beyond my understanding.
I offer myself as a sacrifice to You. I put all my trust in You.
I want nothing more than to fulfill Your will.
Teach me how to pray. Pray Yourself in me.
