Burn into my heart the fire of zeal

Burn into my heart the fire of zeal for Your Heavenly work, oh Lord; that I may keep pressing on and not become dispirited; but remain enthusiastic through the many defeats and set backs that I will encounter on the road to your Heavenly gates of glory.

Though being persecuted, yet I will rejoice; though suffering loss, I will count it as all gain; though being downtrodden and rejected by men, I will not despair; though being hated and despised, yet I will continue to love; though being denigrated and treated as an outcast, yet I will heap praise upon others and only speak of the good that they have done.

Let Your purifying flame of zeal continue to burn in my heart. Amen.
