“Grant to me, O Lord, the penitence of the publican who dared not raise his eyes to heaven, the desire of the prodigal who longed to return home and the wisdom of the merchant who surrendered all to possess the kingdom. Amen.” —Rabbula of Edessa (d. 435), from the Methodist site that doesn’t allow links

“Grant us, O Lord, the will to accomplish all that pleases you; the strength to do all that you command and the reverence to respect all that you have made; for your own name’s sake. Amen.”

—Francis of Assisi (1182-1226) (From the Methodist site that doesn’t allow specific URL links)
