Oh dear God,
Give me patience and strength!
And the fuse of my temper,
Please increase in length!

If my thoughts are sarcastic,
Or spiteful or rude,
Please cleanse me of hatred,
And make cheerful my mood.

If I am troubled,
Or weary or blue,
Make me more thankful,
And repentant to You!

If I am angry,
Forgive me this sin.
Bestow on me blessings,
Of calm from within.

You know my struggles.
You know I am weak.
But You know my intentions,
From the oaths that I speak.

Protect me from Shaytan,
I beg this from You.
Without You I’m nothing.
I seek refuge with You.
