O our Father, be with us. O God, keep us in Your care. Shower mercy upon us. As Your Son has given His life for us, O God, bring that life about in us. Lord, make these things real to us, not only in our minds, but in our hearts and in our lives. Where it needs be, O God, chastise us. Shape us, O God, keep us ever in Your care, and ever in the hand of Your Son, where none can snatch away.
All this in Christ’s holy name we pray.
