Prayers Ancient and Modern 07/02

O Heavenly Father, subdue in me whatever is contrary to Thy holy will. Grant that I may ever study to know Thy will, that I may know how to please Thee.

Grant, O God, that I may never run into those temptations, which in my prayers I desire to avoid.

Lord, never permit my trials to be above my strength—Amen.

Thomas Wilson (1663–1755).

O Lord, who delightest in mercy, preserve us, we beseech Thee, from the sin of harboring in our hearts hard thoughts of Thee. Conform us wholly to Thy merciful will; that whether we live we may live unto Thee, or whether we die we may die unto Thee. While we live, give us grace to show mercy: when we die, of Thy grace show us mercy—Amen.

Christina G. Rossetti.
