Prayer (based on a prayer by St. Ambrose of Milan)

O Lord, who has mercy on all, heal me, renew me, reconfigure me. Mercifully kindle in me the fire of your Holy Spirit, O God. Take away from me the heart of stone. Give me a heart of flesh, a heart to love and adore you, to delight in you, to follow and enjoy you, for Christ’ sake, Amen.
