Prières

Prayer of Father Jordan

Oh Sun of Justice, shine and enlighten my soul
so its footsteps may be like the morning light
that walks and lengthens to perfect day.

O Savior of all people,
let me always burn with a great love for you
so that I inflame all.

Lord Jesus Christ,
take my prayer and all that I have.
Here I am, send me.
Show me the ways to guide all to you.
O Savior of all people, you are our Savior.

 

Prayer – poem of Mother Mary of the Apostles (“Yearning” 1875)

Quand j’attends parler des missions
Je sens en moi une pression,
Un amour et un désir
Qui me sont inconnus.

Mes jours deviennent courts,
Mes cheveux deviennent gris,
Mais cet amour dans le coeur,
Ne s’affaiblit pas, il grandit en moi.

Une fois seulement, une fois je désirais encore,
Je pourrais encore servir,
Faire quelque chose pour les missions
Quelque chose très spéciale encore!

Qui m’a alors donné ce zèle,
Qui m’a alors donné ce désir,
Ne vient-il pas de mon Sauveur;
Ne conduit-il pas vers le Sauveur!

Je veux me donner totalement à Toi,
Totalement pour ce que Tu veux,
En toute humilité je veux baisser,
Comme un pauvre instrument pour Toi!

Quand alors sur le lit de mort je me couche,
Je dis : regarde c’est fait,
Ce qui a traîné ta vie durant,
Regarde, ça s’est déployé.
