A Prayer from St. Teresa of Avila

I am yours and for you I was born:

What do you want from me?

I am yours because you created me,

Yours because you redeemed me,

Yours because you called me to you,

Yours because you also waited for me,

And did not have me condemned.

What do you want of me?


See, here is my heart.

I place it in your hand,

Together with my body and my soul.

My inmost feelings and my love;

Dear Husband and Redeemer,

Since I have given myself to you,

What do you want from me?
