Prayer For A Tuesday Morning ~ St. Ignatius

St. Ignatius' preparatory prayer.

Lord, I so wish to prepare well for this time.

I so want to make all of me ready and attentive and available to you.

Please help me to clarify and purify my intentions.

I have so many contradictory desires.

I get preoccupied with things that don't really matter or last.

I know that if I give you my heart,

whatever I do will follow my new heart.

In all that I am today,

all that I try to do,

all my encounters, reflections -

even the frustrations and failings and especially in this time of prayer,

in all of this may I place my life in your hands.

Lord, I am yours.

Make of me what you will.
