Vincentian Mission Prayer

By Saint John Gabriel Perboyre, C. M.

Divine Savior, transform me into Yourself.

May my hands be Your hands.

May my tongue be Your tongue.

Grant that every faculty of my body

may serve only to glorify You.

Above all, transform my soul

and all its powers,

that my memory , my will and

my affections, may be the memory,

the will, and the affections of You

I pray You to destroy in me,

all that is not of You.

Grant that I may live but in You,

and by You, and for You,

and that I may truly say with St. Paul,

“I live now, not I, but Christ lives in me.”
