Keep Us Steadfast in Your Grace and Truth

O Lord God, heavenly Father,
pour out your Holy Spirit on your faithful people.
Keep them steadfast in your grace and truth,
protect and comfort them in all temptation,
defend them against all enemies of your Word,
and bestow on Christ’s Church militant your saving peace;
through your Son, Jesus Christ our Lord,
who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and forever.
Amen.
