Friday Prayers - 20 June 2014

~Partakers Friday Prayers!

20th June 2014


We pray together and when Christians pray together, from different nations, different churches and different denominations - that reveals Church unity! Come! Let us pray together!


O Almighty and all-knowing God,
without beginning or end,
who is the giver, preserver,
and rewarder of all virtue…
 ~~~~~
Grant me to stand firm
on the solid foundation of faith,
be protected by the invincible shield of hope,
and be adorned by the nuptial garment of charity.
 ~~~~~
Grant me by justice to obey you,
by prudence to resist the crafts of the Devil,
by temperance to hold to moderation,
by fortitude to bear adversity with patience.
~~~~~
Grant that the goods I have
I may share liberally with those who have not,
and the goods which I do not have
I may seek with humility from those who have.
 ~~~~~
Grant that I may truly recognise the guilt of the evil I have done,
and bear with equanimity the punishments I have deserved;
that I may never lust after the goods of my neighbour,
but always give thanks to you for all thy good gifts.
~~~~~
Plant in me, O Lord, all thy virtues,
that in divine matters I might be devout,
in human affairs wise,
and in the proper needs of the flesh
onerous to no one.
~~~~~
And grant that I may never rush to do things hastily,
 
nor balk to do things demanding,
so that I neither yearn for things too soon,
nor desert things before they are finished.

Amen


A prayer of Thomas Aquinas
