Traditional Prayers for Anglican Catholics
         
         
   

To be like Jesus

O blessed Jesus,
give me stillness of soul in thee.
Let thy mighty calmness reign in me;
Rule me, O King of gentleness, king of peace.
Give me control,
great power of self-control,
control over my words, thoughts and actions.
From all irritability,
want of meekness,
want of gentleness,
dear Lord, deliver me.
By thine own deep patience,
give me patience.
Make me in this and all things
more and more like thee.

St John of the Cross (1542-1591)
