Lord, bring home my poverty
Lord, teach me humility, show me your majesty, bring home my poverty.
Make my starting point my unworthiness, raise my head to the preciousness of the Rock which is Christ.
Trace upon my heart the movements of your Spirit.
Remind me that duties fulfilled bring no merit, that victories are all in the past, that faith must be fed to remain strong.
Forgive my failings, God of all comfort!
Open my eyes, God who is light!
Anoint my hands, God who is love!
