Grant that We May Serve You

You have freed us from evil
and strengthened us in what is good.
Grant that we may serve you,
our God and Lord.
Put away our sins.
Give joy to those who mourn.
Give freedom to the captive.
Give health to the sick.
Grant us peace and safety all our days,
and hold back the strength of our enemies.
Hear, O God,
the cry of all your faithful Christian servants
now and at all times,
for the sake of your Son
Jesus Christ our Lord,
who lives and reigns with you
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God,
now and forever.
