Prayer for Everyday

“The house of my soul is narrow, too narrow for you to come into it; enter it, and make it wider. It lies in ruins; rebuild it. There are things about it that will offend your eyes; I know it and confess it. But who will make it clean? To whom but you can I cry: Cleanse me, O Lord, from my own hidden sins, and from the sins of others spare your servant“?

St. Augustine, the first book of his Confessions
