Keep Us from All Hurtful Things

Almighty and merciful God,
in your goodness keep us, we pray,
from all things that may hurt us,
that we, being ready both in mind and body,
may accomplish with free hearts
those things which belong to your purpose;
through Jesus Christ our Lord,
who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever.
