A Prayer of St. Ignatius

“Whoever serves me must follow me,
and where I am, there will my servant be also.” John 12:26

Jesus, teach me to be generous,
to serve you as you deserve:
to give without counting the cost,
to fight needless of the wounds,
to work and not seek for rest,
to toil and not seek for reward,
save the reward of knowing I am doing your will. Amen.

St. Ignatius of Loyola.  Posted on the Canadian Foodgrains Bank “Weekly Prayer” page. Check that website for other good prayers and resources for worship.
