Franciscan Prayer

Almighty, eternal, just and merciful God,
Give us miserable ones the grace to do for you alone what we know you want us to do
And always to desire what pleases you.

Inwardly cleansed, interiorly enlighten and inflamed by the fire of the Holy spirit,
May we be able to follow in the footprints of Your beloved Son, our Lord Jesus Christ,
And by your grace alone, we may make our way to you,
Most High, Who live and rule in perfect Trinity and simple Unity,
And are glorified God almighty forever and ever.
