May I go through the day calling on you

A beautiful prayer, credited only as an “Ethiopian Prayer”, from today’s noon-time reading in Phyllis Tickle’s The Divine Hours:

God, you have prepared in peace the path I must follow today. Help me to walk straight on that path.

If I speak, remove lies from my lips.

If I am hungry, take away from me all complaint.

If I have plenty, destroy pride in me.

May I go through the day calling on you, you, O Lord, who know no other Lord.

Amen.
