Today's Prayer


Eternal Word, only begotten Son of God,
Teach me true generosity.
Teach me to serve you as you deserve,
to give without counting the cost,
to fight heedless of wounds,
to labor without seeking rest,
to sacrifice myself without
thought of any reward
save the knowledge that I have
done your will.
