God our Father, you granted to your servant Elisabeth Leseur gifts of words and a silent grace, that she should be a spiritual light to all she encountered, believers and non-believers, a woman who sought to “find in each soul the point at which it was still in touch with the Infinite, with God”. She found purpose in her suffering, enabled it to unite herself to Christ, and to completely trust in the providence of God. 

Let the inspiration of your servant prompt us to greater confidence in your love so that we may truly live out the words Christ spoke at the last supper – “To love one another”. We humbly ask that you glorify your servant Elisabeth Leseur, on earth according to the design of your holy will. Through her intercession, grant the favor I now present (here make your request). Through Christ our Lord. Amen. (Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory be.)
