Saint Teresa's Prayer

June 01, 2020
By Sisters of St. Agnes

May today there be peace within

May you trust God that you are exactly
where you are meant to be

May you not forget the infinite
possibilities that are born of faith

May you use those gifts that you have received
and pass on the love that has been given to you

May you be content knowing that 
you are a child of God

Let this presence settle into your bones
and allow your soul the freedom
to sing, dance, praise, and love

It is there for each and every one of us.

-Saint Teresa of Avila

Psalm 92

It is good to give thanks to You,

O Beloved to sing

praises to your Hoy Name.

To affirm your gracious Love

in the morning,

and your faithfulness through

the night,

To the music of the spheres,

to the melody of the universe!

For you, Heart of my heart, gladden

my soul,

as I proclaim with joy the harmony

and beauty of creation.

How wondrous is your Divine Plan,

O Beloved,

Your design brought forth by Love!

Thessalonians 1

But friends you are not in the dark, so how could you be taken off guard by any of this?  You are sons of Light and daughters of Day.  We live under wide open skies and know where we stand.  Walk out into the daylight dressed in faith, love, and hope of salvation.  Be cheerful no matter what; pray all the time; thank God no matter what happens This is the way God wants you who belong to Christ Jesus to live.

Psalm 149

Praise God!

Sing a new song,

praise the Holy One wherever the faithful gather.

Let Israel rejoice in its Maker,

the children of Zion exult in the Source of Hope.

Praise God’s name with dancing.

make melodies with the drum and the harp.

For you take pleasure in your people,

beautifying the humble with salvation.

The faithful exult in your glory,

your splendor is known to all who love you-

Praise God!

Psalm 110

The Beloved says to all who will

hear,

“Come walk with Me.  Let us give birth

to a new Earth!”

For the Spirit is the One who makes all things new, and ever

awaits our “yes” to the

Dance!

Those who offer themselves freely,

without reserve,

are guided through life’s rough

paths.

Light beckons to light; divine dignity

adorns all in holy array

The Promise holds true forever,

to all generations

As companions of the Most High

Come! Claim your home in the

Universal Heart.
