Prayer of Saint Augustine of Hippo (Self Knowledge)
Jan 17, 2014
Let's all pray together
Lord Jesus, let me know myself and know You,
and desire nothing save only You.
Let me hate myself and love You.
Let me do everything for the sake of You.
Let me humble myself and exalt You.
Let me think of nothing except You.
Let me die to myself and live in You.
Let me accept whatever happens as from You.
Let me banish self and follow You, and
ever desire to follow You.
Let me fly from myself and take refuge in
You, that I may deserve to be defended by You.
Let me fear for myself.
Let me fear You, and let me be among
those who are chosen by You.
Let me distrust myself and put my trust
Let me be willing to obey for the
sake of You.
Let me cling to nothing save only to You,
and let me be poor because of You.
Look upon me, that I may love You.
Call me that I may see You, and for ever
