Give me then, something worthy to offer you. I also place my life, my body, my soul and my will into your hands so that it may be done to me according to your desire. Support and guide me yourself, give me the spirit of prayer so that I may be pleasing to you.

But you are so good, my Lord and my God, that you will take into account my good will and help me to do what is impossible without you. 1837
