EUTEOTW: Renewal of Time

1806 itadicon

 

Oh Merciful Father,

In the absence of my goodness

I entreated myself to commit sin.

Moments spent in affliction,

I did not regard Your infinite grace.

Rather, I partook of the temptations

weighed upon my soul by the evil one.

My life reflected the regret of my actions

and even in the midst of happiness, I was distressed.

My Eternal God, grant me serenity.

From my most inconceivable thoughts, actions, and failures

to minute transgressions that offend me greatly,

please be with me.

Heal my trespasses with dignity; return to me righteousness.

Nourish my conscience on its return to steadfastness.

Cleanse my desires and purify my intuitions.

At last, my Heavenly Father

allow me to recover in Your presence.

Forgive me for those moments that I cannot return to

yet let all of my darkness in time be restored to Your glory.

I pray, at this very instant, transform me further

into the fruit of Your Spirit, that all that is done

may be committed in the reverence and glory

of the Most High and Blessed Holy Trinity.

In the name of Jesus my Savior, I pray, amen.

Published by Matthew Pope

A graduate of Belmont Abbey College, a Catholic, private institution, Matthew received his Bachelors of Arts degree in Theology in May of 2012. Upon registering for pastoral training in August of 2013, he was formerly a Master of Divinity student at Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary, pursuing the Evangelism program. With a transparent calling from God, his life dramatically changed as he received confirmation into The Catholic Church in November of 2016. Matthew's passion rests in serving the nations with the hope of The Gospel. Author of his lay-ministry, Even Unto The End Of The World, which was established on November 12, 2013, he has also produced his previous books: In Doctrine, Uncorrupt (which was released on February 15, 2014) and Assembled With One Accord (published on December 1, 2015), and is currently writing and planning for following books to come. With a revelatory vision, Matthew intends to encounter the culture and Christendom with truth. In addition, he intends to draw forth the rudiments of the Most Holy Catholic Faith to transform all Christian denominations into The One Church. Matthew confessed Jesus Christ as Savior at age seventeen, impressed with the desire to enter the ministry, in March of 2008. A native of Shelby, North Carolina, he was born on May 28, 1990. He now resides in Wake Forest, North Carolina where he has been actively writing since late 2013.
