Sometimes I find that I've become too attached to the way I want things. This prayer by St Ignatius Loyola encourages me to aspire to a different way of life, one in which I am not the center of my focus and universe. I hope that this prayer may be an inspiration for you too:
Grant, O Lord, that my heart may neither desire nor seek anything but what is necessary for the fulfillment of Thy holy Will. May health or sickness, riches or poverty, honors or contempt, humiliations, leave my soul in that state of perfect detachment to which I desire to attain for Thy greater honor and Thy greater glory. Amen.
