I haven't been tagged but this is going around ... here's the rule:
Name your three most favorite prayers, and explain why they're your favorites.
- Veni Creator Spiritus because I knew it first in song, it's trinitarian and the ending takes a brief versicle and response form.
- Merton's prayer of abandonment, trust and discernment because it describes about 99% of our experience of following God.
- Aquinas' prayer after communion because it covers all the things that I think important: my sinfulness, the sacraments, living well and desiring heaven.
