Luther–Prayer Concerning True Devotion (Gebets-Schatz)

Prayers of Preparation (Evangelical Lutheran Prayer-Treasury) (Concordia 1899)

(“translated” by me)

1.  Concerning True Ardor in Prayer (Luther)

 Lord, You want me to pray to You and call me to come to You.  So I will come, bringing plenty to pray about—especially that which most holds me back from praying and drives me away from you–my sin. It hangs around my neck and presses down heavily upon me; take it away and forgive it, according to Christ’s will.  Amen.
