Deo Volente

Deo vo·len·te [dā-ō-vō-ˈlen-tē]

Definition of DEO VOLENTE: God being willing

Origin of DEO VOLENTE, Latin, First Known Use: 1763

Lord, as You prayed to The Father in Gethsemane, Not My will, but Thine be done, so I pray Deo Volente, whatever God wants, whatever God wills.

As these three words are inscribed on the Scottish Crest for those with the surname Willis, As God wills, so I desire.

Deo Volente, indeed!

I used to say “God willing, Ill do this or I can do that……” Now I think to myself, God has always been willing, most of the time it was me that was not. Work on being willing today!!!!

My brother recently prayed this prayer at a mens' retreat worship gathering we hosted together: "Lord, I am willing to be made willing."
