Generosity Prayer...St. Ignatius

A quote from Daily Catholic quote blog:

“A Prayer for Generosity”
St. Ignatius of Loyola
“Teach us, Good Lord, To Serve Thee as Thou deservest;
To give and not to count the cost;
To fight and not to heed the wounds;
To toil and not to seek for rest;
To labor and not to ask for any reward,
save that of knowing that we do Thy will.
Through Jesus Christ Our Lord,
I really like this little prayer.  It's simple and short and reminds us that we serve HIM.
