Suscipe (Take, Lord, Receive)
Take, Lord, and receive all my liberty,
my memory, my understanding and my entire will
-all that I have and call my own.
You have given it all to me.
To you, Lord, I return it.
Everything is Yours, do with it as You will.
Give me only Your love and Your grace.
That is enough for me.
Saint Ignatius Loyola
The Suscipe prayer by St. Ingatius Loyola is a surrender to God, a giving of all we have and all we are to God. We ask God simply to give us His love and His grace, and strive for those to be all that we need in our lives.
