Prayer of Repentence (Saint Theodore of Studium)

Loutzenhiser's picture

O Lord,
You know how many and how great are my failings.
You know how often I sin, from day to day,
from hour to hour, in what I do and in what I fail to do.

O Lord my God,
I resolve no more to provoke You, and to desire
nothing more than You, for You are alone truly lovable.

If I should offend You again, please grant me the
strength to find favor anew in Your eyes and to
lead a life more pleasing to You.

- Saint Theodore of Studium, 759-826
