Prayer to Redeem Lost Time

 

O my God! Source of all mercy!

I acknowledge Thy sovereign power.

While recalling the wasted years that are past,

I believe that Thou, Lord, can in an instant turn this loss to gain.

Miserable as I am, yet I firmly believe that Thou can do all things.

Please restore to me the time lost, giving me Thy grace,

Both now and in the future, that I may appear before Thee in wedding garments. Amen.

 

St Teresa of Avila
