Give us this day a heart that is pure in your sight, O Lord, so we might look upon you.
O God and Father of love and peace, grant us your eternal peace and grace so we may at all times prove ourselves peace-loving people and avoid all evil discord and strife.
May we endure with a meek spirit and calm heart any hardship we encounter on this earth, be it a cross or tribulations, disgrace, or merely misfortune.
Since you are our God and Creator, O Lord, reconcile our life and walk with your holy and divine will, for all our works and deeds are in your hands.
We commend ourselves and our families, body and soul, into your care, Lord.
Govern and promote our work, O God, according to your will.
