Today I will cleanse the thoughts of my heart by the inspiration of the Holy Spirit. I cannot do the cleansing myself and so I will allow the Holy Spirit to work within me. With this cleansing, the perfection that Christ commands may begin to take hold. (Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father in heaven is perfect. —Matthew 5:48)
“Almighty God, to you all hearts are open, all desires known, and from you no secrets are hid: Cleanse the thoughts of our hearts by the inspiration of your Holy Spirit, that we may perfectly love you, and worthily magnify your holy Name; through Christ our Lord. Amen.”
Book of Common Prayer
Today I will go to God’s altar cleansed by the Holy Spirit.
