Prayer for choosing the best

For the praise of God and perfecting of our soul
Make us indifferent to riches, honours and human praise;
That lacking these inordinate attachments
We may be ready to embrace
Whatever we thus deem best
For the praise of God
And our perfection.

For the end to which God created us;
Come Holy Spirit,
Lord, Giver of life.

Paraphrase of: “First Way of Making a Good Choice,” in Second Week of St Ignatius’ Spiritual Exercises.
