St. Gemma Galgani’s prayer for a particular grace

St. Gemma Galgani would often pray this prayer when she desired a particular grace from God.

St. Gemma Galgani was a holy woman of the late 19th century who led a profound spiritual life. She was intimately united with Jesus’ Passion and constantly desired to be even more united with him.

She would often pray this prayer for a particular grace, asking Jesus for the help she needed at that moment.

Yet, she also submitted herself to God’s will, letting his will be done.

Behold me at Your most holy feet,
O dear Jesus, to manifest to you my gratitude for the continual favors
which You have bestowed upon me, and still wish to bestow upon me.
As many times as I have invoked You,
O Jesus, You have made me content;
I have often had recourse to You and You have always consoled me.
How shall I express myself to You, dear Jesus?
I thank you! Yet one more grace I desire of you,
O my God, if it would be pleasing to You (here mention your request).
If you were not omnipotent, I would not make this request.
O Jesus, have pity on me. May your most holy will be done in all things
