Deliver Us from Evil

O God of peace and charity,
deliver us from all temptation,
assist us in every conflict,
console us in every trouble.
Give us patience in adversity,
and grace to worship you with a pure conscience,
and to serve you with all our strength.
We bless you, we thank you, day by day we magnify you.
Let our praises be pleasing to you,
and our prayer acceptable.
