O God, Father of the universe, grant me first rightly to invoke Thee;
then to show myself worthy to be heard by Thee; lastly, deign to set me free. God, through whom all things which of themselves
were not, tend to be. God, who out of nothing hast created this world, which the eyes of all perceive to be most beautiful.
God, the Father of truth, the Father of wisdom, the Father of the true and crowning life, the Father of blessedness, the Father
of that which is good and fair, the Father of intelligible light, the Father of our awakening and illumination, the Father
of the pledge by which we are admonished to return to Thee.
God, from whom to be turned away, is to fall: to whom to be turned back, is to rise again: in whom to abide, is to stand firm.
God, from whom to go forth, is to die: to whom to return, is to revive: in whom to have our dwelling, is to live. God, whom
no one loses, unless deceived: whom no one seeks, unless stirred up: whom no one finds, unless made pure. God, by whom we
distinguish good from ill. God, by whom we flee evil, and follow good. God, who leadest us to the door of life. God, who causest
it to be opened to them that knock. God, who givest us the bread of life. God, who cleansest us, and preparest us for Divine
rewards, come graciously to me.
Thou the only God, come unto my help. God, whom all things serve, that serve, to whom is compliant every virtuous soul. By
whose laws the poles revolve, the stars fulfill their courses, the sun enlivens the day, the moon tempers the night: and all
the framework of things, day after day by turns of light and gloom, month after month by waxings and wanings of the moon,
year after year by unceasing order of spring and summer and fall and winter, and through the mighty orbs of time, folding
and refolding upon themselves, as the stars still recur to their first conjunctions, maintains, so far as mere visible matter
allows, the mighty constancy of things. God, by whose laws the choice of the soul is free, and to the good rewards and to
the evil pains are distributed by necessities settled throughout all natures. Who hast made man after Thine image and likeness,
as he who has come to know himself discovers. Hear me, hear me, graciously hear me, my God, my Lord, my King, my Father, my
Cause, my Hope, my Wealth, my Honor, my House, my Country, my Health, my Light, my Life. Hear, hear, hear me graciously, in
that way, all Thine own, which though known to few is to those few known so well.
Henceforth Thee alone do I love, Thee alone I follow, Thee alone I seek, Thee alone am I prepared to serve, for Thou alone
art rightly Lord, and of Thy lordship I desire to be. Direct, I pray, and command whatever Thou wilt, but heal and open my
ears, that I may hear Thine utterances. Heal and open my eyes, that I may behold the signs of thy command. Drive delusion
from me, that I may recognize Thee. O Lord, most merciful Father receive, I pray, Thy fugitive; enough already, surely, have
I been punished, long enough have I served Thine enemies, whom Thou hast under Thy feet, long enough has error had its way
with me. To Thee I feel I must return: I knock; may Thy door be opened to me; teach me the way to Thee.
May God wrap you in His Arms today and give you strength. Father in Heaven through the mystical wounds of Your Son Jesus have
mercy on the souls who visit my web pages. Whoever visits this site is automatically prayed for night and day as long as I
live God knows who you are and He will apply your petitions. My motto is I will not let the devil have my family, or any family.
My soul or any soul, if I can prevent it, through prayer, sacrifice and pain and despair. I will fight the devil tooth and
nail, till I take my last breath and then fight him from heaven for souls here on earth.
