A Good Prayer

I read this last night, and loved how it was worded, so I thought I’d keep a cyber record in case my trusty notebook gets lost, burned or dropped in the toilet.  It is an excerpt from the Southwell Litany for the Personal Life which I know nothing about, but was quoted in another book I am reading.

From moral weakness of spirit; from timidity; from hesitation; from fear of men and dread of responsibility, strengthen us with courage to speak the truth in love and self-control; and alike from the weakness of hasty violence and weakness of moral cowardice,

Save us and help us, we humbly beseech Thee, O Lord.

From weakness of judgment; from the indecision that can make no choice; from the irresolution that that carries no choice into act; and from losing opportunities to serve Thee,

Save us and help us, we humbly beseech Thee, O Lord.

  1. That is a prayer that we should all repeat and pray in earnest!
