Cleanse Our Hearts, Hear Our Prayers

O Lord, open our lips
that we may bless your holy name.
Cleanse our hearts from all vain, evil,
and wandering thoughts,
that we may worthily and devoutly offer up
our prayers and praises to you,
and be heard in the presence of your divine majesty;
through Jesus Christ our Lord.
