Excerpt from Pietas Quotidiana, Prayers and Meditations for Every Day of the Week, and on Various Occasions: Being a Collection From the Most Eminent Divines and Moral Writers
With an attentive ear, and receive thy truth with an honest and pure heart. And I beseech thee to pr... eserve in me a right frame of mind throughout the dav that is before me. May I think on my ascended Lord, and put away from me all folly and vanity, as well as vice, and all eager desires after the things of this life all anger and passion and covetous desires, and whatever else is hateful in thy sight. I lament, that in passing through the week, I am so often entangled by the temptations and cares of life. I pray thee now to call my thoughts from all earthly considera tions, and to fix them on those unspeak able joys which are at thy right hand for evermore. O my god, strengthen my faith, increase my hope, and fill my heart with love to thee, and fervent charity towards my fellow-creatures. Help me also to repent of my sins, examining carefully my conduct during the week, and thus may I learn to.
