Grant, Lord, that I may not, for one moment, admit willingly into my soul any thought contrary to Thy love—Amen.
E. B. Pusey.
Almighty God, grant that by the faithful practice of the things that we know to be true, our hearts may be purged of all evil thoughts and desires, and we be brought back again to something of the pureness of spirit by which alone Thou mayest be served. Forgive all our wanderings from the light. Grant that we may escape this great condemnation—that light having come into the world, we have chosen darkness rather than light. Show us the light, and cause us to live in it, and by it to pass through the shadow of death with safety, and to abide with it for evermore. Hear us of Thhy mercy, through Jesus Christ our Lord–Amen.
