Thou God of my end,
Thou hast given me a fixed disposition to go forth and spend my life for Thee;
if it be Thy will let me proceed in it; if not, then revoke my intentions.
All I want in life is such circumstances as may best enable me to serve Thee in the world.
To this end I leave all my concerns in Thy hand,
but let me not be discouraged, for this hinders my spiritual fervency.
Enable me to undertake some task for Thee, for this refreshes and animates my soul,
so that I could endure all hardships and labours, and willingly suffer for Thy name.
