Beautiful prayer by St. Teresa of Avila, doctor of the church, on letting God take control of our lives. Great way to start your day: Coffee and St. Teresa of Avila! "Lord, grant that I may always allow myself to be guided by you, always follow your plans, and perfectly accomplish your holy will. Grant that in all things, great and small, today and all the days of my life, I may do whatever you may require of me. Help me to respond to the slightest prompting of your grace, so that I may be your trustworthy instrument, for your honor. May your will be done in time and eternity-by me, in me, and through me. Amen." *NOTE: At this time we are unable to include personal messages to item recipients. We are planning to offer this service in the future and will note when we are able to do so. Thank you and God bless!
