Quote from Gregory of Nyssa

via bbc

Therefore, if I pray, Hallowed be Thy Name, I ask that these words may affect in me things such as these:

May I become through Thy help blameless, just, and pious.
May I walk in the straight path, shining with temperance, adorned with incorruption,beautiful through wisdom and prudence.
May I meditate on the things that are above and despise what is earthly, showing forth the angelic way of life.

Gregory of Nyssa, The Lord’s Prayer
