Almighty, eternal, just and merciful God,
grant us in our misery the grace to do for you alone
what we know you want us to do,
and always to desire what pleases you.
Thus, inwardly cleansed, inwardly enlightened,
and inflamed by the fire of the Holy Spirit,
may we be able to follow in the footprints of your beloved Son,
our Lord Jesus Christ.
And by your grace alone, may we make our way to you,
Most High, who live and rule in perfect Trinity and simple Unity
and are glorified,
God all-powerful, forever and ever.
