Lord Jesus, You
said, "Everything that you ask in my name will be given to you." We trust
in your word and unite ourselves to all our brothers and sisters
throughout the world, to ask that your name be glorified. We desire to
know ourselves, to know You, to love You always and to make You known and
loved by all. We want to live our Baptismal consecration to the fullest in
today’s world as Associates of the Society of St. Teresa of Jesus. We need
your grace, for without You we can do nothing, but with You we can do all
things. We ask this in your Name. Amen
