Thomas a Kempis lived from 1380-1471. He is most famous for his book The Imitation of Christ. This devotional book has encouraged many Christians over the years to live like Jesus. Here is one of his prayers.

Most gracious God, preserve us from the cares of this life, lest we should be too much entangled therein; also from the many necessities of the body, lest we should be ensnared by pleasure; and from whatever is an obstacle to the soul, lest, being broken with troubles, we should be overthrown. Give us strength to resist, patience to endure, and constancy to persevere; for the sake of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior. Amen.
