Show us the Course

O Lord, our God,
teach us, we beseech You, to ask for the gift we need.
Steer the ship of our life to Yourself,
the quiet harbor of all storm-tossed souls.
Show us the course that we are to take.
Renew in us the spirit of docility.
Let Your Spirit curb our fickleness; 
guide and strengthen us to perform what is for our own good,
to keep Your commandments, and ever to rejoice
 in Your goodness and vivifying presence.
Yours is the glory and praise for all eternity.  Amen.

            St. Basil the Great
