O Lord, give me a mind
that is humble, quiet, peaceable,
patient and charitable,
and a taste of your Holy Spirit
in all my thoughts, words, and deeds.
O Lord, give me a lively faith, a firm hope,
a fervent charity, a love of you.
Take from me all lukewarmness in meditation
and dullness in prayer.
Give me fervor and delight in thinking of you,
your grace, and your tender compassion toward me.
Give me, good Lord,
the grace to work for
the things we pray for.
-St Thomas More-
As found in The Commandments We Keep by Fr Peter J. Vaghi

What a nice prayer to start off each day ~ Thank you!
My favorite line: “Give me fervor and delight in thinking of you,
your grace, and your tender compassion toward me.” This lifts up my soul to the right priorities today. Thanks!
