Saint Therese of Lisieux Prayer for Acquiring Humility
Dec 29, 2020
Let's all pray together
O Jesus! When You were a Pilgrim on earth,
You said: "Learn of Me for I am gentle and humble of heart and you will
find rest for your souls."
O Mighty Monarch of Heaven, yes, my souls
finds rest in seeing You, clothed in the form and nature of a slave, humbling
Yourself to wash the feet of Your apostles. I recall Your words that teach me
how to practice humility: "I have given you an example so that you may do what
I have done."
The disciple is not greater than the Master. If
you understand this, happy are you if you put them into practice." Lord, I do
understand these words that came from Your gentle and humble heart and I want
to practice them with the help of Your grace.
I beg You, my Divine Jesus, to send me a humiliation
whenever I try to set myself above others. I know, O my God, that You humble the
proud soul but to the one who humbles one's self You give an eternity of glory.
So I want to put myself in the last rank and to share Your humiliations so as "to
have a share with You" in the kingdom of Heaven.
But, You know my weakness, Lord. Every morning I
make a resolution to practice humility and in the evening I recognize that I have
committed again many faults of pride. At this I am tempted to become discouraged
but I know that discouragement is also pride.
Therefore, O my God, I want to base my hope in You
alone. Since You can do everything, deign to bring to birth in my soul the virtue
I desire. To obtain this grace of Your infinite mercy I will very often repeat:
"O Jesus, gentle and humble of heart, make my heart like Yours!"
