O God,

You are beyond my understanding. Your ways are known to you alone. Your ways are good and amazing. The gifts and blessings you have bestowed upon me are more than I could ask for, more than I deserve. Thank you.
Fr. Louis once prayed hoping that the desire to please you does, in fact, please you. I pray that his words were inspired. I beg of your forgiveness and mercy. I am weak, incompetent, incapable without you. When my spirit is willing, my strength is your strength. My abilities are from you. 
Prayer isn’t easy. Prayer is hard. I know that there’s no right or wrong way to pray if prayer comes from a sincere heart, but nevertheless, I struggle to find the right words, the right way to convey what I wish to share in our relationship; although, you already know and understand it better than I do. 
I pray through Jesus Christ who is one God together with the Father and the Holy Spirit. Amen.
