A Prayer of St. Benedict

A friend blessed me the other week with this prayer of St. Benefict.
I will pass on the blessing and let you know I prayed this today for my friends and readers.


Gracious and Holy Father,
Grant us the intellect to understand you,
Readon to discern you, diligence to seek you,
Wisdom to find you, a spirit to know you,
A heart to meditate on you.

May our ears hear you,
May our eyes behold you,
And may our tongues proclaim you.

Give us grace
That our way of life may be pleasing to you,
That we may have the patience to wait for you
And the perseverance to look for you.
