Prayer of Saint Isaac of Syria

I knock at the door of Thy compassion Lord, send aid to my scattered impulses which are drunk with the multitude of passions and the power of darkness.
Thou canst see my sores hidden within me: stir up contrition - though not corresponding to the weight of my sins, for if I receive full awareness of the extent of my sins Lord my soul would be consumed by the bitter pain from them.
Assist my feeble stirrings on the path to true repentance, and may I find relief from the vehemence of sins though the contrition that comes of Thy gift, for without the power of Thy grace I am quite unable to enter within myself, become aware of my stains, and so, at the sight of them, be able to be still from great distraction.

Things like these are better kept on your journal. Threads need to start or promote some kind of discussion. :p
