Lord you know us better than anyone else. Search all of our motives, test and try the secret places of our souls, bring to light any darkness that may lurk within and lead us in the way of everlasting life. Take control of our bodies. Purge from us laziness, all unworthy self-indulgence so that they do not hinder but help the perfection of our spirit. Take control of our will that we may be one with you so that body and soul will no longer fight against each other but live in harmony, holiness and health.
Help us to rise this day with a fresh resolve to live the truth of your word. Enlarge our minds and open wide the doors of our hearts so that we may love as you love our neighbors as well as and our haters. In your precious name, Amen
