Prayer for the Quiet Hour

Lord, I offer unto You all my sins and offenses, which I have committed before You, from the day wherein I first could sin even to this hour; that You may consume and burn them, one and all, with the fire of Your love, and do away all the stains of my sins, and cleanse my conscience from all offences, and restore to me Your grace, fully forgiving me all, and admitting me mercifully to the kiss of peace. I offer up also unto You all that is good in me, though it be very small and imperfect, in order that You may amend and sanctify it, that You may make it grateful and acceptable unto You, 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
