Prayer for the Seventh Sunday after Pentecost

O Christ, the power of God and the wisdom of God,
direct us by your grace that we may never stand in the way of sinners,
but by your power always run with a free heart
in the way of your commandments;
through your mercy, O our God,
you are blessed,
and live and govern all things,
now and forever.
Amen.
