Almighty and merciful God,
by whose gift your faithful offer you right and praiseworthy service,
grant, we pray, that we may hasten without stumbling
to receive the things you have promised.
Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, for ever and ever.
