Prayer (Sirach 23:1-6)
1) O Lord, Father and Governor of all my whole life, leave me not to their
counsels, and let me not fall by them. 2) Who will set scourges over my thoughts,
ignorances, and it pass not by my sins: 3) Lest mine ignorances increase, and my
ignorances, and it pass not by my sins: 3) Lest mine ignorances increase, and my
sins abound to my destruction, and I fall before mine adversaries, and mine enemy
rejoice over me, whose hope is far from thy mercy. 4) O Lord, Father and God of
my life, give me not a proud look, but turn away from thy servants always a
haughty mind. 5) Turn away from me vain hopes and concupiscence, and thou
shalt hold him up that is desirous always to serve thee. 6) Let not the greediness
of the belly nor lust of the flesh take hold of me; and give not over me thy servant
into an impudent mind.
