Prayer of Saint Basil the Great
O Lord our God, we beseech you, to ask for the gift we need.
Steer the ship of our life to yourself, the quiet harbor of all storm-stressed souls.
Show us the course which 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 glorious and vivifying presence.
Yours is the glory and praise for all eternity.

Thank you for sharing this. I sometimes find it difficult to find words when I pray…nothing wrong with using the words of others.
