Prayer of St. Benedict

Gracious and holy Father, please give me: intellect to understand you; a reason to discern you; diligence to seek you; wisdom to find you; a spirit to know you; a heart to meditate upon you; ears to hear you; eyes to see you; a tongue to proclaim you; a way of life pleasing to you; patience to wait for you; and perseverance to look for you. Grant me a perfect end in your presence. A blessed resurrection, And life everlasting.
