Prayer of thanksgiving after a fruitful meditation



Philip Kosloski - published on 08/03/20

Ask God to help you implement whatever resolutions you would like to make after a successful time of meditation.

There are times when we are inspired by God during our time of meditation and have every intention of changing some aspect of our lives. Whether it is a bad habit or the practice of a particular virtue, we feel rejuvenated and ready to embrace God’s will.

However, sometimes that desire can be short-lived, and when we have to make a choice, we revert to our old ways.

One way to combat this tendency is to conclude your fruitful meditation with a short prayer to God, asking him for help to implement the fruits in your life.

Here is a short prayer from Fr. Xavier Lasance that can help guide your time of thanksgiving after meditation.

My God, I give you heartfelt thanks for all the graces you have conferred on me during this meditation. Pardon me, I beseech you, all the negligence and all the distractions of which I have been guilty. Give me strength to carry out the resolutions that I have made. Fortify me, that from henceforth I may diligently practise this virtue . . . avoid this fault …. perform this action . . . to your honor. Help me to keep my good resolutions, O sweet Virgin Mary; and you, my good guardian angel, recall them to my memory, if I should ever forget or neglect them. Amen.
