Teach Me…



"Dearest Lord, teach me to be generous.
Teach me to serve Thee as Thou deservest;
To give and not to count the cost;
To fight and not to heed the wounds;
To toil and not to seek for reward,
Save that of knowing that
I do Thy will, O God."
-- St. Ignatius of Loyola

Blessings Carrie...that we all could pray as selflessly as this Saint...to be taught of the Lord!
How wonderful the thoughts and prayer! Thank you for sharing a prayer that teaches such valuable lessons: to give (not to count the cost); to fight (not to heed the wounds); to toil (not to seek for reward)...I truly want to be in His will! Enjoy a Spiritual Sunday!

We all need to hear this with so many folks who could use our generousity in the wake of Ike.
