I offer You Lord my heart which is full of You.
It belongs to You because it contains nothing but You. I offer You my mind because on which You have imprinted Your facial Image. May I now worship the sacred relic day and night painted on my soul. May the world no longer see me but the Christ crucified in me for the only thing I truly long for is being crucified with the Lord to be able to love Him to the fullest. I offer You Lord my eyes which no longer capable of seeing any worldly beauty and glamour but only love and sufferings of souls, for I have seen Your eyes scrutinize my soul, search my heart, asking me to be Your servant in healing and bringing comfort to Your lost people, to see Christ in all in order to implore Your mercy for all. Their pain is Your pain; therefore, it should be mine as well, for to love You is to take the pain in Your heart to be my own. I long to be everything You are, to be compassionate as You are compassionate, to be humble as You are humble, to be gentle as You are gentle. Nothing is significant to me any longer but love. I offer You my tongue Lord for I shall speak in the words of the Lord only; not with the eloquence of men but with the enlightening simplicity of the holy and ever living Gospel. May I have a vision of Your instructing the crowd once on the hillsides or in the boats to fall in love with Your words. May I not grow tired in doing so, which You once did by walking from town to town under hot desert sun. May Your words be engraved onto my heart in order for everything I say I will say with a loving passion so that every single word will depart from my lips with edifying effect. Not with a human tongue I now speak Lord but with thanksgiving and praises I do, with the tongue of a sincere and faithful servant who seeks not his own vain glory but only the Glory of God. I offer You my whole being, everything I have, everything I made of, every of my breath, my very life, just because You had died for me out of tremendous love for wretched sinner like me. Amen
Beautiful prayer everyone should follow.
