St. Teresa’s Prayer

St. Teresa’s Prayer

No matter what your spiritual beliefs, this beautiful prayer is uplifting, comforting, and inspiring. It was found after St. Teresa of Avila’s death in 1582, written on a card that she used as a bookmark for her prayer book.

Let nothing disturb you.
Let nothing frighten you.
All things are passing;
God only is changeless.
Patience gains all things.
Who has God wants nothing.
God alone suffices.
