Prayer of St. Augustine

Lord Jesus, let me know myself and know you, and desire nothing save only you.

Let me hate myself and love you.

Let me do everything for the sake of you.

Let me humble myself and exalt you.

Let me think of nothing except you.

Let me die to myself and live in you.

Let me accept whatever happens as from you.

Let me banish the self and follow you, and ever desire to follow you.

Let me fly from myself and take refuge in you, that I may deserve to be defended by you.

Let me fear for myself, let me fear you,

And let me be among those who are chosen by you.

Let me distrust myself and put my trust in you.

Let me be willing to obey the sake of you.

Let me cling to nothing save only to you, And let me be poor because of you.

Look upon me, that I may love you.

Call me that I may see you, and forever enjoy you.

Amen.

I’m usually a laid back person. I love to read. I’m a history nerd. If I could go back in time and meet just one person it would probably be Pope John Paul II. I’m married to my best friend. Fall is my favorite season. The Giant Panda is my favorite animal. I love it when you go somewhere, see something, or even eat something and it bring back memories from your past. I love the smell of rain. Oh, and by the way, I’m Leila (lie-luh).
