A Prayer to Begin the Day from Daily Prayer

O LORD my God, rescue me from myself, and give me to thee;take away from me everything which draws me from thee; give me all those things which lead me to thee; for Jesus Christ’s sake.

–From the Latin of Precationes Piae, 1564, Daily Prayer, Eric Milner-White and G. W. Briggs, eds. (London: Penguin Books 1959 edition of the 1941 original)
