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.

Thomas à Kempis

  1. Amen. Beautiful prayer. Thank you.

  2. Wow…Amen! Thank you!

  3. Would you all please pray for our daughter, Annie. She is (over) due to give birth to her 4th child. I’m flying out on Tuesday for a 3 week stay to be a “Mama’s helper”. We were hoping she would have the baby before I got there, but God’s timing is perfect.

    **Please pray for peace for her.

    She had a very traumatic birth the last time and so there has been some anxiety about that. (baby was born not breathing and put in an induced coma for 4 days on cooling mats to try to prevent brain damage Thank God, he came out of it fine. The hospital even called it a Christmas miracle!)
