Mother Teresa Daily Powerful Prayer

St. Teresa of Calcutta, one of the greatest saints of modern times, was an inspiration around the world, to both religious and non-religious people alike. Above all, Mother Teresa practiced what she preached, and her actions continue to remind us of the power of Christian charity. Below is a prayer that Mother Teresa prayed on a daily basis; it was one of her favourite prayers and is attributed to Blessed John Henry Newman. The prayer is a perfect summary of her own spirituality and expresses her desire to spread Christ’s love everywhere she went.


In the name of the Father, and of the Son and

of the Holy Spirit. Amen


The Memorare

Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known

that anyone who fled to thy protection, implored thy help,

or sought thy intercession, was left unaided.

Inspired by this confidence I fly unto thee,

O Virgin of virgins, my Mother.

To thee do I come, before thee I stand,

sinful and sorrowful. O Mother of the Word Incarnate,

despise not my petitions, but in thy mercy hear and answer me.



Dear Jesus, help me to spread Thy fragrance everywhere I go.

Flood my soul with Thy spirit and love.

Penetrate and possess my whole being so utterly that all

 my life may only be a radiance of Thine. Shine through me

 and be so in me that every soul I come in contact with may

 feel Thy presence in my soul. Let them look up and see

no longer me but only Jesus. Stay with me and then I shall

begin to shine as you shine, so to shine as to be a light to others.


Glory be, to the Father, to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit.

As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be,

a world without end. AMEN


In the name of the Father, and of the Son and

of the Holy Spirit. Amen
