Martin Luther is so good at cutting right to the chase with his words, his teaching, his prayers. Here is prayer #121 from a collection entitled Luther's Prayers.
FOR HELP IN KEEPING THE COMMANDMENTS
"Lord God, I have indeed transgressed your commandments. I have been impatient in reverses and trials. I am unsympathetic and unmerciful. I do not help my neighbor. I am unable to resist sin. I do not tire of doing wrong. Dear Lord, pour out your grace to me and give me your Holy Spirit so that I may be obedient and keep each of your commandments. Help me to be at odds with the world and to give my heart and soul to you. Amen
