A prayer

Dear Lord, Help me to remove from my mind every thought or opinion which You would not sanction. Every feeling from my heart which You would not approve. Grant that I may spend the hours of the day gladly working with You according to your will. Help me just for today and be with me in it; in the long hours of work, that I may not grow weary or grow slack in serving You; in conversations that they may not be to me occasions of being uncharitable; in the day's worries and disappointments, that I may be patient with myself and with those around me; that I may be generous and loyal, so that when the day is over I may lay it at Your feet with it successes which are all Yours and its failures which are all my own, and feel that life is real and peaceful and blessed when spent with You living inside of me. Amen
