ignatiusPrayers of Saint Ignatius
Take Lord, and receive all my liberty, my memory, my understanding, and my entire will, all that I have a possess.  You have given it all to me.  To you, Lord, I return it.  Everything is yours; dispose of it according to your will.  Give me only your love and your grace.  That is enough for me.  Amen.
Teach us, O God, to serve you as you deserve; to give and not to count the cost; to fight and not to notice the wounds; to toil and not to look for rest; to labour and not to ask for any reward except that of knowing that we do your will through Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen.

Prayer Attibuted to Saint Francis of Assisi
Lord, make me an instrument of your peace
Where there is hatred, let me sow love;
where there is injury pardon;
where there is doubt faith;
where there is darkness light;
and where there is sadness, joy.

O Divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek
to be consoled as to console;
to be understood as to understand;
to be loved as to love.
For it is in giving that we receive;
it is in pardoning that we are pardoned;
and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.
