Fill Our Hearts with the Gifts of Your Grace

comeuntomeLord Jesus Christ,
true God and truly human,
you do not change,
and you are holy in all your works.
Remove all our unbelief and doubt,
and fill our hearts with the gifts of your grace
that we may believe and know you as true God,
and by your miracles and mighty works
know you as Savior of all.
