Diocesan Prayer for 2020

The Prayer of Ignatius of Loyola.

To be recited daily at the Morning and Evening Office.

Teach us, good Lord,
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 rest
to labour, and to ask for no reward –
save that of knowing that we do Thy will through Jesus Christ, our Lord.  Amen
