Prayer for the Fifth Sunday after Pentecost

O Christ, our Lord and our eternal Redeemer,
as we follow you and share in your sufferings,
fill us with your Holy Spirit,
that we subdue the old self to the new,
and the new self to you,
and at last share the glory of your resurrection;
through your mercy, O our God,
you are blessed,
and live and govern all things,
now and forever.
