A Prayer for Thy Will

On the First Cruciform Bead:

In your great mercy, O God, answer me with your unfailing help

Answer me, O Lord, for your love is kind;

In Your great compassion, turn to me.

--Psalm 69

On the First Set of Weeks Beads:

1 – Speak Lord, for thy servant heareth

2 – Grant me ears to hear and eyes to see,

3 – A will to obey and a heart to love;

4 - Then declare what thou wilt,

5 - Reveal what Thou wilt,

6 - Command what thou wilt,

7 - Demand what thou wilt.

--Adapted from Christina Rossetti
