Prayer for God’s Will

Here is a prayer from sixteenth century Spanish contemplative, Teresa of Ávila (1515-1582):

“Lord, grant that I may always allow myself to be guided by You, always follow Your plans, and perfectly accomplish Your Holy Will. 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.”
