Prayer for Peace and Indwelling

ElisabethO my God, Trinity whom I adore, help me to become entirely forgetful of self, that I may establish myself in You, as changeless and as calm as though my soul were already in eternity! May nothing disturb my peace nor draw me forth from You, my immutable Lord. Let me penetrate more deeply every moment into the very depths of Your mystery. Give peace to my soul, make it Your heaven, Your cherished dwelling place, Your home of rest. Let me never leave You alone, but keep me ever there, all absorbed in You, in living faith, adoring You and wholly yielded up to Your creative action.
Blessed Elizabeth of the Trinity (1880–1906)
