O Eternal God,
Sanctify my body and soul,
my thought and my intentions,
my words and actions,
that whatsoever I shall think or speak or do,
may be by me designed for the glorification of Your name,
and by Your blessing,
it may be effective and successful in the work of God,
according as it can be capable.

Lord, turn my necessities into virtue;
the works of nature into the works of grace;
by making them orderly, regular, temperate;
and let no pride or self-seeking,
no covetousness or revenge,
no little ends and low imaginations,
pollute my spirit,
and unhallow any of my words and actions.

- Jeremy Taylor, 1613-1667
