St. Ignatius' Prayer for Generosity
Posted 01/04/2015 02:29PM

Lord teach me to be generous.
Teach me to serve you as you deserve; 
To give and not to count the cost; 
To fight and not to heed the wounds; 
To toil and not to seek for rest; 
To labor and not to ask for reward 
Save that of knowing I do your will

Perhaps the most famous prayer associated with St. Ignatius of Loyola, the Prayer for Generosity has also become well known among Prep students in recent years.  It is printed on the back of student identification cards and each day at the Prep ends with the entire community reciting this prayer.   While St. Ignatius himself may not have been the author of this prayer, it certainly captures the heart of his spirituality; the desire to know, love, and serve God.  Its sentiment can be found in Ignatius’ instructions before the Contemplation to Obtain Love, the exercise of the Spiritual Exercises where he reminds the retreatant that “Love should consist more in deeds than in words”.  Before this exercise the retreatant is instructed to “ask the Lord for the grace to direct my thoughts, activities, and deeds to the service and praise of His Divine Majesty”, echoing the words of the Generosity Prayer. 

Evidence of Ignatius’s spirit of generosity abounds at Fordham Prep in recent months.  This past summer Prep students raised a record $242,000 through our Service Immersion Program to support the work of Habitat for Humanity in Tennessee and the Working Boys Center in Quito, Ecuador.  Prep students only have to walk out to the newly renovated Prep field and track to see the spirit of generosity of the parents and alumnus who donated so generously to make this much needed improvement to the athletic facilities at the Prep.  Upperclassmen also have shared generously with the newest members of the Prep community, the Freshmen, serving as big brothers and tutors.  The Freshmen too have been quick to jump on the generosity bandwagon, with 113 of them applying to be a part of the new Ambassador program that will welcome eight graders and other visitors to the Prep.  The many examples of this generosity all point to the spirit of Ignatius that permeates life here at the Prep.

But what does this mean in our own lives?  While the prayer may be rather simple, we know that living with this spirit of generosity is not always easy.   Our lives can demand so much that at times it may seem we have nothing more to give.   We can too easily find our days filled with long to do lists with little time for generosity.    Our culture also at times can lead us to self-centeredness that can leave little room for true generosity and service.  Perhaps that’s why this ancient prayer is needed more than ever these days. Its words are simple, but its message is profound as it calls us to seek the generosity in our lives that leads to genuine love and service.  It reminds us to simply “labor and not to ask for reward” knowing that we indeed can do God’s will. 

Need a little more inspiration?  Perhaps this video from ignatianspirituality.org about the results of generosity will help.
