A BEAUTIFUL PREVENIENT ACT
By T. M. Fahy
O God, my Father,
I invite the Divine Will to reign in me today just as It does in Heaven, / as it did in Jesus and Mary when They were upon the earth. / I want all my thoughts, words, and actions to be done in and by the Divine Will, / animated and directed by the Divine Will. / I want everything that is done through my humanity to be done in the ambience of Eternity. / I want all that I do to fulfill the purpose of Creation, / and to realize the ideal that You, Heavenly Father had in creating the human race. / I want all my acts to multiply to the infinite, to penetrate everywhere, to embrace all eternity. /
I want all my acts today to be adored by the Angels because of being filled with the Life of God Himself! / I want all my acts in the Divine Will to reproduce the Life of Jesus. / As my acts begin, I want them to form the Conception and Birth of Jesus; / as my acts are carried out, I want them to form the hidden and public lives of Jesus; / as my acts conclude, I want them to form the Death and Resurrection of Jesus. /
I want my acts of this day to spill over into the Heavenly regions, / showering the Angels and Saints with new joys, new glories, new beatitudes; / and I call all the Angels and Saints to join me today in all that I do. / I want all my acts to effectively impetrate the Reign of the Divine Will on earth as in Heaven. /
My God, I want all my acts today to enrapture You, / to bring You ecstasies’ of new and ever increasing joys. /
I want all my acts today in the Divine Will to repair all human acts, past, present, and future / to make them all Divine acts for Your honor and glory, my Father.
I want all my acts today to penetrate every creature ever created past, present, and future / to bring to you, Father, an “I love You, adore You, praise You, and thank You” / from every thought, word, and deed ever done by them, or ever will be done by them. /
I love You, my God, divinely, infinitely, eternally. / I love You for as long as You have been God and for as long as You will be God, / which is Eternity itself, with Your own Will, / in the name of all generations past, present, and future. / I love You, my God, my Father, the Author of my life!
