Prayer: Macarius of Egypt

O eternal God and ruler of all creation, you have allowed me to reach this hour. Forgive the sins I have committed this day by word, deed, or thought. Purify me, O Lord. Grant that I may glorify you by my deeds throughout my entire lifetime. Deliver me, O Lord, from all vain thoughts and from evil desires, for yours is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, now and forever.
