Grant Us Grace to Serve You

you do not desire the death of a sinner,
but rather that he should turn from his evil way and live:
We pray,
graciously turn from us those punishments
which we have deserved by our sins,
and grant us grace from now on
to serve you in holiness
and pureness of living;
through your Son,
Jesus Christ our Lord.
