Saint Augustine of Hippo Quote
Accordingly, we should pray for pardon if we have sinned, as we do when we say, "Forgive us our debts as we also forgive our debtors." But we should also pray that God should guide us away from sin, and this we do when we say, "Lead us not into temptation"--and we should make our petitions to Him of whom it is said in the psalm, "The Lord is my light and my salvation"(Psalms 27:1.); that, as Light, he may take away our ignorance, as Salvation, our weakness.
-- Saint Augustine of Hippo from “Enchiridion On Faith, Hope, and Love”
