St Francis’ Prayer for Enlightenment

Almighty, eternal, just, and merciful God,
grant us in our misery the grace to do for You alone what we know
You want us to do, and always to desire what pleases You.

Thus, inwardly cleansed, interiorly enlightened, and inflamed by the
fire of the Holy Spirit, may we be able to follow in the footprints of
Your beloved Son, our Lord Jesus Christ.

And by You grace alone, may we make our way to You, Most High,
Who live and rule in perfect Trinity and simple Unity, and are
glorified God all-powerful forever and ever. Amen.
