PRAYER OF THE ORDER

O gracious and Holy Father,
that thy Son may be glorified,
give thy Daughters wisdom to perceive thee,
intelligence to understand thee,
diligence to seek thee,
patience to wait for thee,
eyes to behold thee,
a heart to meditate upon thee,
and a life to proclaim thee;
by the power of the Holy Spirit
through Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior.
Amen.
