Our Morning Offering – 26 February – Friday of the First Week of Lent
Prayer for the Grace of Patient Suffering
By Thomas à Kempis (1380-1471)
O Lord Jesus,
make possible to me by grace,
what is difficult by nature.
You know well how little I can bear
and how easily I am upset by a little adversity.
Therefore, I beseech You,
that hereafter, any trouble or adversity
may be loved and desired by me
for Your Name,
for it is very good and profitable
to my soul,
to suffer and be afflicted
