A Prayer by Teresa of Avila


It is a comfort, Lord, to know that you did not entrust the fulfillment of your will to one so pitiable as me. I would have to be very good if the accomplishment of your will were in my hands. Although my will is still self-centered, I give it, Lord, freely to you.

By St. Teresa of Avila, Carmelite nun and mystical theologian.
