Prayer of St. Ignatius Loyola

Miles Jesu members are encouraged to recite this prayer after Communion

Dearest Lord, teach me to be generous: teach me to serve You as You deserve: to give an 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 reward save that of knowing I am doing your will.

Take, O Lord, all my liberty, receive my memory, my understanding and my will. You have given me all that I am and all that I possess. I return it all to You and surrender it to the guidance of Your will. Give me only Your love and grace. With these I am rich enough and ask nothing more. Amen.


Prayer to St. Michael the Archangel

Holy Michael, the Archangel, defend us in battle. Be our protection against the wickedness and snares of the devil. May God rebuke him we humbly pray; and do you, O prince of the heavenly host, by the divine power, thrust into hell Satan and all the other evil spirits who wander throughout the world seeking the ruin of souls. Amen.


Guardian Angel Prayer

Angel of God, my guardian dear, to whom God’s love entrusts me here, ever this day be at my side, to light and guard, to rule and guide. Amen.
