Ask and you will receive

Most High, glorious God,
enlighten the darkness of my heart 
and give me
true faith, 
certain hope, 
and perfect charity,
sense and knowledge, Lord, 
that I may carry out Your holy and true command. Amen.
Saint Francis of Assisi

 This is one of my favourite prayer. When I repeat it, I feel I am asking God for all that is important to my life. 
When I am lost, when I don´t know what to do, I ask God to bring light to my heart.
When I feel that my faith is weak, that I have doubts, I ask Him to grant me a true, strong faith.
When I am sad, dissapointed, and dissilussioned with myself and with the ways the world are taking, I ask God a certain hope.
And when I see how selfish, in all ways, I can be, I ask He, who is allmighty, to give me a perfect charity.
But about all I ask  for that Knowledge that allows me to fulfill all that God is asking me to do.
