Lord God, heavenly Father,
by your blessed Word
and your holy baptism
you have mercifully cleansed
all who believe
from the fearful leprosy of sin,
and you daily grant us your gracious help
in all our needs.
Enlighten our hearts by your Holy Spirit
that we may never forget your blessings,
but always live in your fear,
trusting fully in your grace
and with thankful hearts
continually praise and glorify you;
through your Son, Jesus Christ our Lord,
who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
one true God, now and forever.
