Monday Prayer Requests (St. Alcuin)

A Prayer of St. Alcuin: Give me, O Lord, I beseech thee, firm faith, unwavering hope, perfect charity. Pour into my heart the Spirit of wisdom and understanding, the Spirit of counsel and spiritual strength, the Spirit of knowledge and true godliness, and the Spirit of thy holy fear. Light eternal, shine in my heart. Power eternal, deliver me from evil. Wisdom eternal, scatter the darkness of my ignorance. Might eternal, pity me. Grant that I may ever seek thy face  with all my heart and soul and strength; and, in thine infinite mercy, bring me at last to thy holy presence where I shall behold thy glory and possess thy promised joys.  Amen.

With all our heart and with all our mind, let us pray to the Lord, saying “Lord, have mercy.”
