Dominican Rite

From a discussion on the Dominican Rite at the Catholic Online forum, a very meaningful prayer.

Prevent, O Lord, we beseech thee, our actions by thy inspiration, and continue them by thine assistance; that every one of our works may begin always from thee, and through thee be ended. Through Christ our Lord. Amen.
I suppose "prevent our actions by thy inspiration" means to "inspire our actions".

"Prevent" means "go before", "precede"; we ask the Lord to "go before" our undertakings by inspiring them; and to help them along by his aid.
