For Purity of Heart

1538547_de6ab6b6O merciful Lord Jesus Christ,
you were made in the likeness of sinful flesh,
you bore our sins in your body
to cleanse us by your death
and to make us new creatures
acceptable to God.
Purify us from those stains of sin
that daily defile our souls,
and grant us grace
to maintain the cleanness
which you impart
that both in name and in profession
we may give you glory as your people;
for you live and reign
with the Father and the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and forever.
Amen.
