A prayer, composed by St. Ignatius Loyola in the Spiritual Exercises, to be said as an act of total self-sacrifice to God. It reads; "Take, O Lord, and receive all my liberty, my memory, my understanding, and all my will, all that I have and possess. You have given all of these to me; to you I restore them. All are yours, dispose of them all according to your will. Give me your love and your grace; having but these I am rich enough and ask for nothing more."
