From Starck's - from the Prayer for Tuesday Morning

...Give me good counsel when I need counsel. Direct my plans and purposes according to Your will. Kindle in me the flame of divine love, that this day I may show my faith by my works, abide in sincere love toward You and toward my neighbor, and reach the evening unharmed in conscience. To You, O Lord, do I cry! Do not be silent to me, lest if You are silent to me, I become like those who go down to the pit. Hear the voice of my prayer as I lift my hands toward Your holy sanctuary. Let the prayer of the afflicted, the downcast, the sick, and also the prayer of my family and of all God-fearing people find a hearing at Your throne of grace...
