In my heart’s most secret chambers You are waiting to meet and speak to me, freely offering me Your fellowship in spite of all my failures. I open myself to this peace of mind. I leave behind all my fretfulness, all unworthy desires, all thoughts of malice toward others, and all hesitancy in surrendering my will to do Yours.
In Your will, O Lord, is my peace.
In Your love is my rest.
In Your service is my joy.
You are all my heart’s desire.
Whom have I have in heaven but you?
There is no other I desire on earth.
In Your presence, O God, I think not only of myself, but also of theirs.
Be near to all of us this night and graciously keep watch over our souls.
Hear my prayer for the sake of Christ.
