I desire, O Lord,
earnestly longing for the help of Thy grace,
to renew all my baptismal vows
to renounce all that displeaseth Thee,
and to walk more perfectly in newness of life.
I renounce the devil
and all his works and pomps,
of the world with all its covetous desires,
all sinful excesses in things lawful,
and whatever may lead my heart from Thee
or hinder my duty
also, I renounce all the sinful lusts of the flesh,
with everything in thought, word, or deed,
which displeaseth Thee, especially …,
from all which let it be Thy good
pleasure to deliver me,
and to turn the whole stream of my affections to the love of Thee,
that Thy will
and thy love may be the sole rule and guide of my life,
and I may love whatever Thou lovest,
and hate whatever Thou hatest.

by granting that which I wish
or ask if it offended Thy Love,
which would always live in me.
Let me die to myself,
so that I may love Thee. ... continue reading
