Most loving God, give me a steadfast heart,
…..which no unworthy thought can drag downwards;
…..an unconquered heart, which no hardship can wear out;
…..an upright heart, which no worthless purpose can ensnare.
Give me also, O Lord my God,
…..understanding to know you,
…..diligence to seek you,
…..and a faithfulness that will finally embrace you;
through Jesus Christ, my Lord.
