Prayer for myself.
Spare us, Father!
Our hearts are prone to stray, chasing after the things that will only destroy us.
Spare us from pride, a blindness of heart, and a refusal to seek your will
from envy, malice, and uncharitableness towards others
from the lusts of the flesh and weakness in the face of temptation
from discontent and longing for what we can’t have
from godless ambition and seeking our own glory
from the deceitfulness of riches
from anxiety and prayerlessness
from laziness, busyness and trivialities.
Spare us, Father, from these sins and from all other things that distract us from the glory of Jesus Christ in whom we have forgiveness and all the riches of the world to come.
