Prayer for the Gifts to Seek God and Live in Him


 
 
Father,
in Your goodness grant me
 the intellect to comprehend You,
the perception to discern You,
and the reason to appreciate You.

In Your kindness endow me
with the diligence to look for You,
the wisdom to discover You,
and the spirit to apprehend You.

In Your graciousness bestow on me
a heart to contemplate You, 
ears to hear You,
eyes to see You,
and a tongue to speak of You.

In Your mercy confer on me
a conversation pleasing to You,
the patience to wait for You,
and the perseverance to long for You.
Grant me a perfect end - Your Holy Presence.

Amen.


Prayer of Saint Benedict of Nursia, Monk and Founder of Benedictines
