I found lots of references to this prayer, but struggled to discover the original author. Thanks to Marilyn Brown, I now know that it was written by John H. Vincent, a bishop of the Methodist Episcopal Church.
God, please enlighten my mind with truth.
Inflame my heart with love.
Inspire my will with courage.
Enrich my life with service.
Pardon what I have been.
Sanctify what I am.
And order what I shall be.
