A Prayer attributed to Saint Columban.
Lord God, cut down and root out whatever the Adversary plants in me. With my sins cleared away may you sow good sense in my mind, and goodness in my heart, so that I can seek you and serve you completely in word and deed, and understand how to carry out Christ’s will. Grant thoughtfulness, grant love, grant purity, grant faith; give me all that you know will help my soul. Lord, work good in me and provide me with what you know I need. Amen.
