HIDE NOT THY FACE FROM US, WE BESEECH THEE, O LORD
ST AUGUSTINE'S PRAYER TO OUR ALMIGHTY FATHER
Almighty Father, come into our hearts, and so fill us with Thy love that forsaking all evil desires, we may embrace Thee, our only good. Show us, O Lord our God, what Thou are to us.
Say to our souls, I am your salvation, speak so that we may hear. Our hearts are before Thee; open our ears; let us hasten after Thy voice. Hide not Thy Face from us, we beseech Thee, O Lord.
Open our hearts so that Thou may enter in. Repair the ruined mansions, that Thou may dwell therein. Hear us, O Heavenly Father, for the sake of Thy only Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, Who lives and reigns with Thee and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen.

I found this beautiful prayer in the book, Deliverance Prayers For Use by the Laity which was compiled by Father Chad Ripperger. I make an urgent plea for you to consider buying your own copy of this book of powerful prayers as soon as possible.
