ALPHA AND OMEGA
Lord of Letters,
my begining and end, please, God:
me against the wiles of Satan.
when I need Your grace.
me when I am sick in body or soul.
me from all temptation.
me when I need to understand.
when I do not deserve Your mercy.
when I put myself in danger of sin.
me when I am tempted to pride.
me when I am slothful and lazy.
sinfulness with undeserved mercy.
close beneath Your saving cloak.
even when I forget to love You.
me when I need to care for others.
me when I am hungry in spirit.
when I am closed and selfish.
me when I am in danger of sin.
me for entrance into Your kingdom.
me when my soul is weary.
from temptation and evil thoughts.
me for spiritual battle.
me as only You can, my Creator.
me when I am spiritually sluggish.
clean in the in the saving waters
of the heavenly Jordan River.
Dear Lord, hold me always secure
in the palm of Your gentle, blessed, hand
and in the safe home of Your Sacred Heart.
All this I pray to You,
my good and glorious and ever-loving God.
