Beautiful Prayer of St. Teresa of Avila


Beautiful Prayer of St. Teresa of Avila


I am confused about the “psychologist” part.


Two Prayers by St. Teresa of Avila:

Prayer to Redeem Lost Time:

O my God! Source of all mercy! I acknowledge Your sovereign power. While recalling the wasted years that are past, I believe that You, Lord, can in an instant turn this loss to gain. Miserable as I am, yet I firmly believe that You can do all things. Please restore to me the time lost, giving me Your grace, both now and in the future, that I may appear before You in “wedding garments.” Amen.

Let nothing disturb you:

Let nothing disturb you.
Let nothing frighten you.
All things pass.
God does not change.
Patience achieves everything.
Whoever has God lacks nothing.
God alone suffices.

Christ has no body on earth now but yours;
no hands but yours;
no feet but yours.
Yours are the eyes
through which the compassion of Christ
must look out on the world.
Yours are the feet
with which he is to go about doing good.
Yours are the hands
with which he is to bless his people.

Eucharisted-I’m sorry I probably won’t be able to give you the correct answer but my guess is the next line which states, " Despite ‘the dark night of the soul’ you were able to obtain peace from God." I’m sorry if I wasn’t unable to answer your question.

Prayers to St. Teresa of Avila

Lord, grant that I may always allow myself
to be guided by You,
always follow Your plans,
and perfectly accomplish Your Holy Will.
Grant that in all things,
great and small,
today and all the days of my life,
I may do whatever You require of me.
Help me respond to the slightest prompting of Your Grace,
so that I may be Your trustworthy instrument for Your honour.
May Your Will be done in time
and in eternity by me, in me, and through me. Amen.
