Speaking of ancient prayers

June 17, 2011 — Leave a comment

Grant me, O Lord my God,
A mind to know You,
A heart to seek You,
Wisdom to find You,
Conduct pleasing to You,
Faithful perseverance in waiting for You,
And a hope of finally embracing You.

Thomas Aquinas
13th centiry Italian Dominican priest and philosopher

***

Be with me today, O Lord
May all I do today
begin with You, O Lord.
Plant dreams and hopes
within my soul,
revive my tired spirit:
be with me today.

May all I do today
continue with Your help, O Lord.
Be at my side
and walk with me:
Be my support today.
May all I do today
reach far and wide, O Lord.
My thoughts, my work, my life:
make them blessings
for Your kingdom;
let them go beyond today,
O God.
