How can I come near you?

How can I come near you, Lord, in the purity of your holiness? You explode all my senses with your powerful presence. I fall on my face, and fear overcomes me.

You merciful tenderness raises me up. Forgive my sins, O God, that I might continue among your people.

Make of me a soul in the image of your Son. Let your life flow in me and through me for the resurrection of the dead.

Walk with me, your obedient child, and let me hear the joy of your pleasure.

Say amen. Ask for prayers. Give thanks.
