Prayer for Heavenly-Mindedness

O most blessed Lord, deign to help us, and of Your great mercy abolish our sins; detach our minds from earthly things, and raise them to the love of heavenly riches. Most merciful God, who dost favour all true love, do You so aid and direct us that we may love You above all things, and recognizing Thine infinite benefits, may keep them in memory, and give You everlasting thanks for them. Finally, grant that ours may be the blessed life which shall enjoy Your love for ever; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Ludolph of Saxony
