Lord, give me grace to hold righteousness in all things 
that I may lead a clean and blessed life and prudently flee evil 
and that I may understand the treacherous and deceitful falseness of the devil. 

Make me mild, peaceable, courteous, and temperate. 
And make me steadfast and strong. 

Also, Lord, give Thou to me that I be quiet in words 
and that I speak what is appropriate. 

- John Wycliffe
