Prayer for Grace to Reform and Grow Better

AND lest, through our own frailty, or the temptations which encompass us, we be drawn again into sin; Vouchsafe us, we beseech thee, the direction and assistance of thy Holy Spirit.

Reform whatever is amiss in the temper and disposition of our souls; that no unclean thoughts, unlawful designs, or inordinate desires, may rest there.  Purge our hearts from envy, hatred, and malice; that we may never suffer the sun to go down upon our wrath; but may always go to our rest in peace, charity, and good-will, with a conscience void of offence towards thee, and towards men; that so we may be preserved pure and blameless, unto the coming of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.  Amen.

From the Book of Common Prayer of the Reformed Episcopal Church
