Forgotten Catholic Prayers: Prayer to Redeem Lost Time

Here is a super cool, mostly unknown prayer from the amazing St. Teresa of Avila:

O MY GOD! Source of all mercy! I acknowledge Thy sovereign power. 

While recalling the wasted years that are past, I believe that Thou, Lord, can 
in an instant turn this loss to gain. Miserable as I am, yet I firmly believe that 
Thou can do all things. Please restore to me the time lost, giving me Thy grace, 
both now and the future, that I may appear before Thee in "wedding garments."
