Ask and Receive

6 10 2013

Blessed be the name of the Lord Most High who gives us all we need to live in light and hope!

I’d like to close the last series of posts with this prayer which Marty shared with me:

Jesus! meek and humble of heart, Hear me.
From the desire of being esteemed,
Deliver me, Jesus.
From the desire of being loved…
From the desire of being extolled …
From the desire of being honored …
From the desire of being praised …
From the desire of being preferred to others…
From the desire of being consulted …
From the desire of being approved …
From the fear of being humiliated …
From the fear of being despised…
From the fear of suffering rebukes …
From the fear of being calumniated …
From the fear of being forgotten …
From the fear of being ridiculed …
From the fear of being wronged …
From the fear of being suspected …

That others may be loved more than I,
Jesus, grant me the grace to desire it.

That others may be esteemed more than I …
That, in the opinion of the world,
others may increase and I may decrease …
That others may be chosen and I set aside …
That others may be praised and I unnoticed …
That others may be preferred to me in everything…
That others may become holier than I, provided that I may become as holy as I should…

In Jesus’ name,

Amen!

May my desire be what God most wants, and the perfect love of Jesus cast out all fear, and humble love of divine quality let me rejoice in the gifts and work of others. Thanks for repeating that prayer; it’s good every time I read it.
Peace
