Pause for Prayer: SATURDAY 10/25



From the stupid things I often do,
   deliver me, O Lord...

From my lack of thought and care,
   deliver me, O Lord...

From my rash and headstrong judgments,
   deliver me, O Lord...

From my impetuous quick temper,
   deliver me, O Lord...

From my selfishness and greed,
   deliver me, O Lord...

From my ego and my pride,
   deliver me, O Lord...

From my foolishness and folly,
   deliver me, O Lord...

From my delusions and my fantasies,
   deliver me, O Lord...

From my wasting time and effort,
   deliver me, O Lord...

From my stewing in self-pity,
   deliver me, O Lord...

From my indifference and my apathy,
   deliver me, O Lord...

From my jealousy and envy,
   deliver me, O Lord...

From my grudges and resentments,
   deliver me, O Lord...

From all my faults deliver me
and so deliver those whose hearts and lives
are hurt and harmed by mine, Lord...

Deliver me from all my faults
and in their place give me the grace
to be 
prudent
caring
understanding
peaceable
generous
selfless
wise
truthful
earnest
grateful
compassionate
accepting
and forgiving...

Deliver me, Lord, from all my faults
and in their place give me the grace
to be faithful 
to your love...

Amen.
