Mary and Jesus

Prayer for generosity

Attributed to Saint Ignatius of Loyola (1491–1556)


Lord, teach me
to be generous.
Teach me to serve you
as you deserve;
to give and
not to count the cost;
to fight and
not to heed the wounds;
to toil and
not to seek for rest;
to labor and
not to ask for reward
save that of knowing
that I do your will.
