Prayer from St. Ambrose of Milan, 337-397 AD
O Lord, who has mercy upon all,
Take away from me my sins,
And mercifully kindle in me the fire of Your Holy Spirit.
Take away from me the heart of stone,
And give me a heart of flesh,
a heart to love and adore You,
a heart to delight in You,
to follow and to enjoy You,
for Christ’s sake. Amen.
