Thursday Prayer

“Now we must praise the guardian of heaven,

the might of the Lord

and His purpose of mind, the glorious all Father,

for He, God eternal, is kind.

The will of God be done by us,

the law of God be kept by us,

our evil will controlled by us,

our sharp tongue checked by us,

quick forgiveness offered by us,

speedy repentance made by us,

temptation sternly shunned by us,

blessed death welcomed by us,

angels’ music heard by us,

God’s highest praises sung by us.

My soul’s desire is to see the face of 

God and to rest in His house.”

~Abbess Hild of Whitby
