Awaken me from my spiritual slumber

Burn into my heart the fire of your zeal, Oh Lord, and awaken me from my spiritual slumber.

Restore to me the joy of my Salvation, Oh Lord, and remove from my heart the feelings of discouragement which have accumulated as a result of the many setbacks, failures and defeats that I have suffered during the past years of my life.

As Paul said, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things that are before, I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.

Purge from me the devastating effects of the memories of my past defeats, Oh Lord, and instill into my heart and mind a fresh vision of the things to come.
