Prayers Ancient and Modern 06/30

Grant me, even me, my dearest Lord, to know Thee, and love Thee, and rejoice in Thee. And, if I cannot do these perfectly in this life, let me at least advance to higher degrees every day, till I can come to do them in perfection. Let the knowledge of Thee increase in me here, that it may be full hereafter. Let the love of Thee grow every day more and more here, that it may be perfect hereafter; that my joy may be great in itself, and full in Thee. I know, O God, that Thou art a God of truth, O make good Thy gracious promises to me, that my joy may be full—Amen.

St. Augustine (354–430).

O Lord, give us all grace, by constant obedience to offer up our wills and hearts an acceptable sacrifice unto Thee—Amen.

Christina G. Rossetti.
