The Quiet Hour

Lord, I offer unto Thee all my sins and offences, which I have committed
before Thee, from the day wherein I first could sin even to this hour;
that Thou mayest consume and burn them, one and all, with the fire of
Thy love, and do away all the stains of my sins, and cleanse my
conscience from all offences, and restore to me Thy grace, fully
forgiving me all, and admitting me mercifully to the kiss of peace. I
offer up also unto Thee all that is good in me, though it be very small
and imperfect, in order that Thou mayest amend and sanctify it, that
Thou mayest make it grateful and acceptable unto Thee, and always be
perfecting it more and more; and bring me also, slothful and
unprofitable poor creature as I am, to a good and blessed end. Amen.

“Thomas à Kempis[2]
