Thomas a Kempis

This is my favorite prayer from Thomas a Kempis:

O God, most loving Comforter,
I pray that you will always turn what is evil into good,
and what is good into what is better.
Turn my mourning into joy,
my wandering feet into the right path,
my ignorance into knowledge of your truth,
my lukewarmness into zeal,
my fear into love, all my material goods into a spiritual gift,
all my earthly desires into heavenly desires,
all that is transient into what lasts forever,
everything human into what is divine,
everything created and finite into that sovereign and
immeasurable good which you yourself are,
O my God and Savior. Amen
