I thought it might be interesting to actually have a topic of prayers which people find helpful, but which are maybe not so well known? I guess one person's well known is another person's familiar. Here's one I like, and which I know isn't in the CTS prayer book.
Take O Lord, and receive my entire liberty, my memory, my understanding and my whole will. All that I am and all that I possess You have given me: I surrender it all to You to be disposed of according to Your will. Give me only Your love and Your grace; with these I will be rich enough, and will desire nothing more. Amen
The beautiful prayer of St. Ignatius, from his Spiritual Exercises. Have you read the book?
I don't know if the "Litany of Humility" has been posted, but it is one of my favorites.
And this prayer by St.John of the Cross:
O blessed Jesus,
give me stillness of soul in You.
Let Your mighty calmness reign in me.
Rule me, O King of Gentleness,
King of Peace.
