Father, forgive us all that we talk too much and think too little. Forgive us all that we worry so often and pray so seldom. Most of all, O Lord, forgive us that, so helpless without you, we are yet so unwilling to seek your help.
Give us grace to seek you with our whole heart, that seeking you we may find you, and finding you may love you, and loving you may keep your commandments and do your will. Through Jesus Christ, our Lord, Amen.
