Prayer for a Rich Spiritual Life

Almighty, eternal, just, and merciful God,
grant to us miserable ones the grace to do for you
what we know you want us to do.
Give us always to desire what pleases you.
Inwardly cleansed, interiorly illumined
and enflamed with the fire of the Holy Spirit,
may we be able to follow in the footprints
of your beloved Son, our Lord Jesus Christ,
and attain to you, Most High, by your grace alone,
who in perfect Trinity and simple Unity
lives and reigns and is glorified as God almighty,
forever and ever. Amen.
