Grief & Loss

Grief and Loss Prayers

Prayer to Do God's Will

Dearest Lord, teach me to be generous;
Teach me to serve thee as thou deservest;
To give and not to count the cost,
To fight and not to seek for rest,
To labour and not to seek reward,
Save that of knowing that I do thy will.

- St. Ignatius of Loyola
