“For, as for me, I am not worthy to be called Thy servant; much less am I worthy to be Thy son; for I am the vilest of sinners and the worst of men; a lover of the things of the world, and a despiser of the things of God; proud and envious, lustful and intemperate, greedy of sin, and impatient of reproof; desirous to seem holy, and negligent of being so; transported with interest; fooled with presumption and false principles; disturbed with anger, with a peevish and unmortified spirit, and disordered by a whole body of sin and death. Lord, pardon all my sins for my sweetest Saviour’s sake; Thou, who didst die for me, Holy Jesus, save me and deliver me; reserve not my sins to be punished in day of wrath and eternal vengeance; but wash away my sins, and blot them out of Thy remembrance, and purify my soul with the waters of repentance and the blood of the cross; that, for what is past, Thy wrath may not come out against me; and, for the time to come, I may never provoke Thee to anger or to jealousy. O just and dear God, be pitiful and gracious to Thy servant. Amen.”
by Jeremy Taylor, Holy Living and Dying.
