Fill My Heart

Give me strength, O my God,
to absolve my offences,
to overcome temptations,
to subdue my passions,
and to acquire the virtues proper in my life.

Fill my heart with tender affection for Your goodness,
hatred for my faults,
love for my neighbor,
and contempt of the world.

May Your grace help me to be submissive to my superiors,
condescending to my inferiors,
faithful to my friends,
and charitable to my enemies.

Through Your goodness, thy will be done.
