Prayer to Practice what Jesus Taught

O Lord Jesus Christ,
grant us a measure of thy Spirit.
Help us to obey thy teaching,
soothe anger,
cultivate pity,
overcome desire,
increase love,
cast off sorrow,
shun vainglory,
renounce revenge,
and not be afraid of death.
Let us ever entrust our spirit to the everlasting God
who with thee and the Holy Spirit liveth and reigneth
forever and ever. Amen.

St Apollonius of Rome (? – 185 AD)
