Holy One, with undivided hearts uplifted before your light and truth we praise You and bless You: in your mercy, hear our prayer.
Blot out all our offenses, and by your grace bring us to repentance and amendment of life, O Lover of Souls. Purify our intentions and our wills that we may embody your love, and walk in the way of your Son our Savior Jesus Christ.
Abide within the sanctuary of our hearts, Gracious Spirit, that our lives may be a pure testimony and a new creation. Let us rededicate ourselves to the repair of the world, dedicated to the work of peace, justice, and compassion, we pray. Remain with those who are sorrowing or in distress, O Holy Comforter, and press the kiss of thy blessing on those we now name.
