Prayer for today

Almighty and ever-living God,
your generosity exceeds what we deserve
and even what we ask for in prayer.
Pour out your compassion on us:
forgive whatever is weighing on our consciences,
and grant us gifts that we would not even dare to pray for.
Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
God for ever and ever.

Collect of the day - Roman Office.

Yes, this makes sense to me!

And this:

He truly is a rare and marvellous work of heavenly grace,
who when he comes into the din and tumult of the world,
can view things just as he calmly contemplated them
in the distance,
before the time of action came.

John Henry Newman.
