In our weakness, O Lord, be our strength.  In our sinfulness, be to us pardoning love.  In our need, be our all sufficient grace.  In our anxiety, be to us both stillness and rest, and at all times be to us the fullness of blessing; through Christ our Lord. Amen.

Before ever you made us, O Lord, you loved us.  Your love has never slackened nor ever shall.  In love all your works have begun, by love you sustain them and in your love our life is everlasting.  So let the beginning and ending of all our loving be to see our God for ever and ever.  Amen.
