A Prayer for Patience

On the Cross or Terminal Charm:

Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit,

As it was in the beginning, is now and will be forever. Amen.

On the Invitatory Bead:

Grant me, O Lord my God, a mind to know you,

A heart to seek you,

Wisdom to find you,

Conduct pleasing to you,

Faithful perseverance in waiting for you,

And a hope of finally embracing you.

--Prayer of St. Thomas Aquinas
