A Prayer for Religious Sisters by Servant of God, Sister Ida Peterfy
A Prayer for Religious Sisters
give me a burning love
that I may love You
and love my brothers and sisters for You.
Give me your never-ending divine love,
and I will go anywhere and everywhere
You want me to go.
by Servant of God Sister Ida Peterfy, Foundress of the Society Devoted to the Sacred Heart
Thank you, Sister Martha, SDSH, for sharing this beautiful prayer.
This Prayer for Religious Sisters by Servant of God, Sister Ida Peterfy, was written for the Sisters in the Religious order she founded-the Society Devoted to the Sacred Heart. It is a prayer that lay people (people who are not priests or religious) can also adapt to use to pray for religious sisters. We are each called to our vocation by God; it is important for us all as brothers and sisters in Christ to pray for each other for strength and faith to live out our vocation well.
