Gracious and loving God,
through the teaching and intercession of Saint Teresa of Avila, may we persevere in prayer and acts of loving kindness. By your Spirit lead us along the true path of humility. May sadness and sorrow never overwhelm us. May every experience in life lead us to a deeper sense of your abiding presence in the core of our being.
Through Christ our Lord. Amen.
Saint Teresa of Avila, pray for us.
