Vointa divina

Doamne,

Ma sprijinesc in tine; Vad, cred, traiesc, cand voia ta, nu a mea, se face;

Nu gasesc nimic in mine sa ma faca vrednic de merit si har,

Sa ma faca vrednic de providenta si promisiunile tale, nimic in afara de buna ta placere.

Daca mila ta m-ar face sarac si netrebnic, fii binecuvintat!

Rugaciunile izvorite din nevoile mele sunt pregatiri pentru milostenii care au sa vina;

Ajuta-ma sa te slavesc crezand mai inainte de a simti,

caci mare este pacatul daca fac simtamintele cauza credintei mele.

Descopera-mi pacatele care te ascund de mine si iti ascund dragostea;

Ajuta-ma sa ma umilesc pentru relele facute, si sa pot decide a umbla cu mai multa grija,

caci daca nu umblu in sfintenie inaintea ta, cum as putea fi sigur de mintuire?

Cei blinzi si umili carora le descoperi legamantul tau,

care-ti stiu voia, ei sunt iertati si vindecati,

Cei care prin credinta depind si se odihnesc in har,

Cei care sunt sfintiti si insufletiti, cei care iti exemplifica dragostea.

Ajuta-ma sa ma rog in dragoste si astfel sa-ti aflu voia,

sprijinindu-ma din plin pe mila ta cea bogata si gratuita,

crezand ca tu vei implini ce ai promis;

Intareste-ma sa ma rog asigurat fiind ca orice primesc este darul tau,

ca sa ma rog pana rugaciunea imi este ascultata;

Invata-ma sa cred ca mila ta in orice masura se naste din citeva nivele de rugaciune,

Ca atunci cand se naste credinta, ea este imperfecta si trebuie sa creasca,

precum pamantul uscat se crapa tot mai larg pana la venirea ploii.

Astfel voi astepta si eu voia ta, ma voi ruga sa se implineasca, si prin har voi deveni ascultator.

O Lord,

I hang on thee; I see, believe, live,

when thy will, not mine, is done;

I can plead nothing in myself

in regard of any unworthiness and grace,

in regard of thy providence and promises,

but only thy good pleasure.

If thy mercy make poor and vile, blessed be thou!

Prayers arising from my needs are preparatios for future mercies;

Help me to honor thee by believing before I feel,

for great is the sin if I make feeling a cause of faith.

Show me what sins hide thee from me and eclipse thy love;

Help me to humble myself for past evils, to be resolved to walk with more care,

For if I do not walk holily before thee, how can I be assured of my salvation?

It is the meek and humble who are shown thy covenant,

know thy will, are pardoned and healed, who by faith depend and rest upon grace,

who are sanctified and quickened, who evidence thy love.

Help me to pray in faith and so find thy will,

by leaning hard on thy rich free mercy, by believing thou wilt give what thou hast promised;

Strengthen me to pray with hte conviction that whatever I receive is thy gift,

so that I may pray until prayer be granted;

Teach me to believe that all degrees of mercy arise from several degrees of prayer,

that when faith is begun it is imperfect and must grow,

as chapped ground opens wider and wider until rain comes.

So shall I wait thy will, pray for it to be done, and by thy grace become fully obedient.
