To Go Forward with Your Help

Grant your servants, O God,
to be set on fire with your Spirit,
strengthened by your power,
enlightened by your splendor,
filled with your grace,
and to go forward with your help.
Give them, O Lord,
a right faith,
perfect love,
true humility.
Grant, O Lord,
that there may be in us simple affection,
brave patience,
persevering obedience,
perpetual peace,
a pure mind,
a right and clean heart,
a good will,
a holy conscience,
awareness and watchfulness,
spiritual strength,
a blameless life,
and after we have finished our course,
we may happily enter into your blessed kingdom.
