A Prayer in Singleness

The following is a prayer that can be used with prayer beads, based on two prayers found at http://www.commonprayer.net.

Cross
In the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.

Invitatory
Oh God, I long to dwell with you and to take refuge in the shelter of Your wings

Repeated Prayers
Cruciforms
Father, I abandon myself to You. Make of me what you will. Whatever you make of me, I thank You.

Weeks
First: It is a need of my love to give myself to you unreservedly and with infinite trust (meditate on God’s protection, trustworthiness, love, intimacy, etc.)

Second: I am ready for everything, I accept everything (lift up areas of struggle, anxiety, worry, fear, loneliness, etc)

Third: Create in me a clean heart, a pure spirit, and passionate love (pray for healing and wholeness, whole sexuality, key relationships with others, commitment to celibacy)

Fourth: Make me a sign of brotherly/sisterly love in Your Church (pray for the Church, meditate on commitment to the body and how to live out that commitment in intimate, pure, and humble ways)

Invitatory
Uphold me, O God, according to Your word, and I shall live; and do not disappoint me in my hope (Ps 119:116)

Cross
Glory to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit, as it was in the beginning, is now, and will be forever. Amen.
