For your true Church we lift our hearts in prayer,
come to us now and your own strength impart,
that we may sense your presence with us here,
and worship you with all our mind and heart.
Pour forth your Spirit on your servants now;
help them proclaim the gospel of your grace;
kindle their souls whene'er in prayer they bow,
and may they all your holy faith embrace.
Anoint their lips that they may speak your word;
true to their call, may they their task fulfill;
from all distrust and error, free them, Lord;
make them true prophets of your holy will.
