Sirach 15:15-20
15 If you wish, you can keep the commandments and it is in your power to remain faithful.
16 He has set fire and water before you; you stretch out your hand to whichever you prefer.
17 Life and death are set before man: whichever a man prefers will be given him.
18 How magnificent is the wisdom of the Lord! He is powerful and all-seeing.
19 His eyes are on those who fear him. He knows all the works of man.
20 He has commanded no one to be godless and has given no one permission to sin. No happiness for the wicked

Beloved, grant me the desire to always choose to do what is right.  You make grace available to me each day.  Help me use it in making the right choices.  Hole me back from displeasing You.  Let Your Face be ever before me, Your holy Presence within me.  May I always be attuned to the promptings of the Holy Spirit.

1Corinthians 2:9-10
. But as Scripture says: Eye has not seen, ear has not heard, nor has it dawned on the mind what God has prepared for those who love him. 10 God has revealed it to us, through his Spirit, because the Spirit probes everything, even the depth of God.

The mysteries of the divine are revealed only to those who have matured in faith.  It is a decision to give our lives over to God and allow Him to do what He wills with it for His glory.  It is then that His saints will experience the delights of heaven on earth.
