Default Frequent and Favorite Prayers

In the hope of encouraging a bit more devotion at T2 and less skepticism and worse, I pray members will share prayers here that they feel have been helpful in bringing them closer into communion with the Divine Trinity; not necessarily a single most favorite prayer, but rather share as many prayers as you feel have brought you hope, encouragement, strength, or love.
Here's one of my favorites by St Ignatius of Loyola:
Lord Jesus,
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 reward,
save only knowing that I am doing Your Will.
Amen
from My Daily Bread

Nice thought! Every prayer rendered by His own are a gem, but favorite? I might have to get back with you on that. There are so many, a whole-slew of them very high on inspiration. As for bringing up a standout, I donít think possible coming from me, but only to define it.

Some people are gifted to intercede and do so with the infectious knack to lead us all about. Yes, Iím referring to the public address in prayer. Not the kind rendered for Congress every session, but the kind that is capable to bring to the surface Godís care and affection for us with the ability to pepper the spirit with promise and supply with the sort the Lord himself was accustom to saying,
All spoke well of him and were amazed at the gracious words that came from his lips.

(Luke 4:22)

Thanks for your comment. I hope you'll share prayer(s) you like, that have helped you in some way. I like to read or hear the prayers of other people because they often express my thoughts better than I can myself.
Here's another prayer of St Ignatius, in praise of Jesus:
Lord Jesus Christ,
You left behind all power and security
to embrace the terrible risks
of loving God in all and loving all in God.
You walked through every valley of darkness;
You faced the full force of evil,
so that You would know
a way to lead us out of sin and death.
No desert could dry out Your love for God.
No selfishness could dry out Your love for us.
Lord, show me Your Way.
Amen
from Spiritual Exercises,
second week, day 6

Someone said some of the best prayers are (from) the Word of God Itself. There are some such words that I repeat when I remember, when i need or cry out, am grateful, etc. like

Psalms 46:10
10 Be still, (me/my name) and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth.

Psalms 42 1As the deer pants for the water brooks,
So my soul pants for You, O God...

11Why are you in despair, O my soul?
And why have you become disturbed within me?
Hope in God, for I shall yet praise Him,
The help of my countenance and my God.

Hi, many thanks.
Here is A Morning Prayer, by Alice Chase.

Help me, dear Lord, to live this day
as You would wish me to,
and if I fail, then please forgive
the wrong things that I do.

Give me the strength to comfort those
who need a helping hand,
Give me a loving heart
that I may better understand.

Help me solve the problems
that are sure to come my way,
but not forget the blessings
that are part of every day.

And finally, Lord, walk with me!
My faltering footsteps guide.
For I need never be afraid
if You are by my side.
Amen
