God of all power and might,
author and giver of all that is good,
put in our hearts the love of your name,
increase in us true religion,
nourish us with all goodness,
and in your great mercy keep us in your grace;
through your Son, Jesus Christ our Lord,
who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and forever.
