A prayer for Truth from St. Bernard of Clairvaux
High and Holy God, give me this day a word of truth to silence the lies that would devour my soul and kind encourgements to strengthen me when I fall.
Gracious One, I come quietly to your door needing to receive from your hands the nourishment that gives life.
Amen and Amen. St. Bernard of Clairvaux
