Give me, O Lord, a steadfast heart which no unworthy affection may drag downwards.
Give me an unconquered heart which no tribulation can wear out.
Give me an upright heart which no unworthy purpose may tempt aside.
Bestow on me also, O Lord my God, understanding to know you, diligence to seek you, wisdom to find you, and a faithfulness that may finally embrace you,
through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
