Father, keep us from vain strife of words.
Grant to us constant profession of your truth!
Preserve us in a true and undefiled faith
so that we may hold fast
to what we professed when we were baptized
in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit,
that we may have you for our Father,
that we may abide in your Son
and in the fellowship of the Holy Spirit;
through Jesus Christ, our Lord.
