To give without counting the cost (St. Ignatius of Loyola)

 O my God, teach me to be generous, 
teach me to serve you as I should, 
to give without counting the cost, 
to fight without fear of being wounded, 
to work without seeking rest, 
to labour without expecting any reward 
but the knowledge that I am doing your most holy will.  
--St. Ignatius of Loyola
