PRAYER: Delivery Me From Myself, by Mother Teresa

deliver me from myself mother theresa

Lord, when I think that my heart is overflowing with love and realize in a moment’s honesty that it is only myself that I love in the loved one,

Deliver me from myself.

Lord, when I think that I have given all that I have to give and realize in a moment’s honesty that it is I who am the recipient,

Deliver me from myself.

Lord, when I have convinced myself that I am poor and realize in a moment’s honesty that I am rich in pride and envy,

Deliver me from myself.

And, Lord, when the Kingdom of Heaven merges deceptively with the kingdoms of this world,

Let nothing satisfy me but God.

Amen.
