Prayer of Brother Lawrence for God’s Presence in the Midst of Working — A Quote by Brother Lawrence in “The Practice of the Presence of God”

“‘O my GOD, since Thou art with me, and I must now, in obedience to Thy commands, apply my mind to these outward things, I beseech Thee to grant me the grace to continue in Thy Presence; and to this end do Thou prosper me with Thy assistance, receive all my works, and possess all my affections.’ As he proceeded in his work, he continued his familiar conversation with his Maker—imploring His grace, and offering to Him all his actions.”
