Prayer of the Day - Saint Josemaría Escrivá

Pray with Saint Josemaría Escrivá

 O God, through the mediation of Mary our
Mother, you granted your priest St. Josemaría
countless graces, choosing him as a most faithful
instrument to found Opus Dei, a way of sanctification
in daily work and in the fulfillment of the
Christian's ordinary duties. Grant that I too may
learn to turn all the circumstances and events of
my life into occasions of loving You and serving the
Church, the Pope and all souls with joy and simplicity,
lighting up the pathways of this earth with
faith and love. Deign to grant me, through the
intercession of St. Josemaría, the favor of ... (make
your request). Amen.

Our Father. Hail Mary. Glory be to the Father.

(I have been praying this prayer every day for over a year, I find it beneficial to pray it just as I arrive at work. I currently pray for 3 intentions: to server well that day at work, healing for my eyes and to live more joy.)
