One of my favorite prayers: A Universal Prayer for all Things Necessary to Salvation by Pope Clement XI - Composed in 1721. Please visit for more prayers. O MY God, I believe in Thee; do Thou strengthen my faith. All my hopes are in Thee; do Thou secure them. I love Thee; teach me to love Thee daily more and more. I am sorry that I have offended Thee; do Thou increase my sorrow. I adore Thee as my first beginning; I aspire after Thee as my last end. I give Thee thanks as my constant benefactor; I call upon Thee as my sovereign protector. Vouchsafe, O my God! to conduct me by Thy wisdom, to restrain me by Thy justice, to comfort me by Thy mercy, to defend me by Thy power. To Thee I desire to consecrate all my thoughts, words, actions, and sufferings; that henceforward I may think of Thee, speak of Thee, refer all my actions to Thy greater glory, and suffer willingly whatever Thou shalt appoint. Lord, I desire that in all things Thy will may be done because it is Thy will, and in the manner that Thou willest. I beg of Thee to enlighten my understanding, to inflame my will, to purify my body, and to sanctify my soul. Give me strength, O my God! to expiate my offenses, to overcome my temptations, to subdue my passions, and to acquire the virtues proper for my state of life. Fill my heart with tender affection for Thy goodness, hatred of my faults, love of my neighbor, and contempt of the world. May Thy grace help me to be submissive to my superiors, condescending to my inferiors, faithful to my friends, and charitable to my enemies. Assist me to overcome sensuality by mortification, avarice by alms-deeds, anger by meekness, and tepidity by devotion. O my God! make me prudent in my undertakings, courageous in dangers, patient in affliction, and humble in prosperity. Grant that I may be ever attentive at my prayers, temperate at my meals, diligent in my employments, and constant in my resolutions. Let my conscience be ever upright and pure, my exterior modest, my conversation edifying, and my comportment regular. Assist me, that I may continually labor to overcome nature, to correspond with Thy grace, to keep Thy Commandments, and to work out my salvation. Make me realize, O my God! the nothingness of this world, the greatness of Heaven, the shortness of time, and the length of eternity. Grant that I may prepare for death; that I may fear Thy judgments, and in the end obtain Heaven; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Have you been told you're boring? In this podcast, I give you two tips on how to improve your level of being seen as an interesting person. It seems the self perception of being boring is something that is very painful to folks. In some ways, it is encouraging that people are self aware enough to seek help. Two characteristics of boring people are that they tend to be tedious and passive during group interactions. The tediousness occurs , especially when they recount their experiences. They speak with a slow rate of speech and tend to include too many extraneous details that add nothing to the story.
