A Prayer to The Little Flower

St. Therese, Child of God,

like you we are sometimes willful and make bad decisions.

We refuse to budge, even against the movement of grace. Yet, we wake up and feel the urge to do the right thing -- to allow our inner child of grace and wonder to chase dreams and pursue God.

Teach us to run through the raindrops of life to that safe and sacred place in God's heart.

As only a child can understand, empower us to pursue that call to holiness -- to understand that God is always running to embrace and meet us.

Please, don't let the tear drops of our lives dampen our enthusiasm for God, lessen the longing of our hearts, not blind us to Jesus racing toward us with open arms.

Amen.
