I love this prayer

I love the following prayer of Martin Luther. What about you?

"Behold, Lord, an empty vessel that needs to be filled. My Lord, fill it. I am weak in faith; strengthen me. I am cold in love, warm me and make me fervent, that my love may go out to my neighbor. I do not have a strong and firm faith; at times I doubt and am unable to trust You altogether. O Lord, help me. Strengthen my faith and trust in You. In You I have sealed the treasures of all I have. I am poor; You are rich and came to be merciful to the poor. I am a sinner; You are upright. With me, there is an abundance of sin; in You is the fullness of righteousness. Therefore, I will remain with You, of whom I can receive, but to whom I may not give. Amen."

Luther reminds me of what I dare not forget. I remain poor in spirit. I remain totally dependent on God and Christ, my Lord.

What about you?
