Father in heaven, God of love, all I have and am is yours.
Grant that I may become a living sign of your compassion in this world.
Grant me the faith to live my life,
always in the awareness of your loving presence.
Grant me zeal to serve without thought of reward,
those to whom you send me.
Grant me charity to bear the burdens of my brothers and sisters.
Teach me to seek your Son's face, in the last, the lost and the least.
In whatever I undertake, may I seek above all things, to procure your glory,
as far as I am able and as you will require me.
Strengthen me by your Holy Spirit, to follow Jesus by living
the commitment I make this day.
St John Baptist de la Salle, pray for us.
Live Jesus in our hearts forever!
