Almighty God, you who have made all things for us, and us for your glory,
sanctify our body and soul, our thoughts and our intentions,
our words and actions, that whatsoever we shall think, or speak, or do,
may by us be designed to the glorification of your name . . .
and let no pride or self-seeking,
no impure motive or unworthy purpose,
no little ends or low imagination stain our spirit,
or profane any of our words and actions.
But let our body be a servant to our spirit, and both body and spirit servants of Jesus Christ.
- Thomas A Kempis
