Grant me, I implore You, Almighty and most Merciful God, fervently to desire, wisely to search out, and perfectly to fulfill, all that is well-pleasing to You. Order my worldly condition to the glory of Your name. Of all that You require me to do, grant me the knowledge, the desire, and the ability to fulfill it as I ought. May my path to You be safe and straightforward to the end.

Give me, O Lord, a steadfast heart which no unworthy affection may drag downwards. Give me an unconquered heart which no tribulation can wear out. Give me an upright heart, which no unworthy purpose may tempt aside. 

Bestow upon me also, O Lord my God, understanding to know You, diligence to seek You, wisdom to find You, and a faithfulness that may finally embrace You. Amen.
