O GOD, I SURRENDER TO YOU THE HABITS and sins that, like frost, chill my soul and cause your life-giving energy to cease its flow in me. Uproot me from the weed patches of evil wherein I have chosen to sink my roots. Plant me instead in your field of righteousness.
– Norman Shawchuck and Rueben P. Job
