Living Temple

Father, may I always remember

that my body does not belong to me but to you,
who bought it at my Baptism

create in me that wholeness and integrity
that all my powers may be consecrated to your service

My good Angel, 
you come from heaven; 
God has sent you to take care of me.

stay quite near me 
and defend me against the spirit of evil.

Deliver my soul so that with you it may praise, 
love and contemplate the goodness of God 
forever and ever. 

Amen
