Unfathomable Love

By May 15, 2017 No Comments

I bless Thee, O most holy God, for the unfathomable love whereby Thou hast ordained that spirit with spirit can meet and that I, a weak and erring mortal, should have this ready access to the heart of Him who moves the stars.

With bitterness and true compunction of heart I acknowledge before Thee the gross and selfish thoughts that I so often allow to enter my mind and to influence my deeds.

I confess, O God –

  • That often I let my mind wander down unclean and forbidden ways:
  • That often I deceive myself as to where my plain duty lies:
  • That often by concealing my real motives, I pretend to be better than I am:
  • That often my honesty is only a matter of policy:
  • That often my affection for my friends is only a refined form of caring for myself:
  • That often my sparing of my enemy is due to nothing more than cowardice:
  • That often I do good deeds only that they may be seen of men, and shun evil ones only because I fear they may be found out.

O holy One, let the fire of Thy love enter my heart, and burn up all this coil of meanness and hypocrisy, and make my heart as the heart of a little child.

Amen.
