THOUGHTS ON PRAYER




STRUGGLE IN PRAYER

 

Shame on my thoughts, how they stray from me. I fear great danger from this on the Day of Eternal Judgment.


During the psalms they wander on a path that is not right; they run, they distract, they misbehave before the eyes of the great God. . .

 

One moment they follow ways of loveliness, and the next, ways of riotous shame -- no lie! . . .

 

O Beloved truly chaste Christ, to whom every eye is clear, may the grace of the sevenfold Spirit come to keep them, to hold them in check!

 

Rule this heart of mine. O swift God of the elements, that you may be my love, and that I may do your will.  

 

From the Leabbar Breac
