Prayers of Invocation on Redemption

Prayers of Confession on Redemption

Adapted from Psalm 19:14 NRSV

Lord, God,

Let the words of my mouth and the meditations of our hearts

be acceptable to you, O Lord, my rock and my redeemer. Amen.

O Lord our God,

grant us grace to desire you with our whole heart,

that so desiring we may seek and find you;

and so finding you we may love you;

and loving you we may hate those sins

from which you have redeemed us;

for the sake of Jesus Christ.

Anselm of Canterbury, Found in Ed J. Manning Potts, Prayers of the Middle Ages, 1954.
