Dear Lord, grant me, I pray, Your divine helping grace. Endow me with patience and strength to endure my tribulations with complete submission to Your will. You know my misery and suffering and to you, my only hope and refuge, I flee for relief and comfort.
May it please You, my good Lord, that there may come a day when I can repay a little of my great debt to you. O Jesus, strengthen my soul, You who are good above all good. Here is my life, my honor and my will; I have given them all to You and they are Yours: use me to do whatever You want.
Give me grace today, so to live that by obedience I may increase in faith and in the understanding of Your Holy Word. I submit to Your Holy Word. Help me to meditate on it day and night.
