To Win Over Sin


I thank you, God , for everything... Each blessing day and night
...Especially the grace to do... The things I know are right... I
may not always do them, God...As You are well aware...And
sometimes I feel lost and I... Am given to despair... I know it is
so wrong for me...To have that kind of mood...And that the
weakness of my flesh...Reflects ingratitude...My heart is truly
sorry, God...Sincerely I repent... And beg for more abundant
grace... As virtue's battlement... Please comfort me and heal each
wound... That I sustain from sin...Then lift me up once more,
dear God... With strength enough to win.

Trust in the LORD with all your heart,
and do not rely on your own understanding.
In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will
make straight your paths.
Be not wise in your own eyes............
