Great Daily Prayers – Spiritual Discernment

Here is another great prayer from Thomas a'Kempis. I know, I know, you're wondering if I'll ever post prayers by anyone else. The answer is: yes, I will. But a'Kempis happens to be the only one I'm reading right now who gives a glimpse into his prayer life and close walk with Jesus.

This is a great one. I prayed it this morning:

Grant me, O Lord, the grace to know what is worth knowing, love what is worth loving, praise what is most pleasing to you, value what is precious to you, and despise what is contemptible in your sight.
Do not allow me to judge according to what I see, or give sentence according to what ignorant people hear, but enable me to discern with true judgment between things visible and spiritual, and above everything to always search for the good pleasure of your will.
