A Prayer to Begin the Day

Posted by Kendall Harmon

Almighty and eternal God, so draw our hearts to thee, so guide our minds, so fill our imaginations, so control our wills, that we may be wholly thine, utterly dedicated unto thee; and then use us, we pray thee, as thou wilt, but always to thy glory and the welfare of thy people; through our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.

--William Temple (1881-1944)

Would you be kind enough to supply the citation for this prayer.  I have heard it from time to time and did not know Abp. Temple had written it.
