Have no anxiety at all, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, make your requests known to God. Then the peace of God that surpasses all understanding will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.
Phil 4:6-7

Give us fervor...

O Lord, give us a mind that is humble, quiet, peaceable, patient and charitable, and a taste of your Holy Spirit in all our thoughts, words, and deeds. 

 O Lord, give us a lively faith, a firm hope, a fervant charity, a love of you.

 Take from us all lukewarmness in meditation and all dullness in prayer.

 Give us fervor and delight in thinking of you, your grace, and your tender compassion toward us. 

 Give us, good Lord, the grace to work for the things we pray for. 

 --St Thomas More, 1478-1535, feast day June 22
