Father, guard my heart and my mind. Work within me
only that which is pleasing in Your sight. I am frail and weak
in my own strength; so help me by the strength which
You supply to live a life worthy of the gospel of Your Son,
and a life worthy of the calling with which I have been called.
Help me to be an example to the flock, living a life worthy
of admiration and imitation. Guard me from my own self,
and give me a sensitivity to the sin which so easily entangles me.
Help me to fight the good fight of faith and finish
my course without disqualification.
