A Prayer of St Augustine


imageO Lord,

the house of my soul is narrow;

enlarge it that you may enter in.

It is ruinous, O repair it!

It displeases your sight.

I confess it, I know.

But who shall cleanse it,

to whom shall I cry but to you?

Cleanse me from my secret faults, O Lord,

and spare your servant from strange sins.

 

This is the first of a weekly series which amounts to my sharing early Christian prayers each Monday during this Easter season. I hope you enjoy.
