Let us pray
Have mercy upon us,
God the father
Have mercy upon us,
God the son
Have mercy upon us
God the Holy spirit
Holy blessed nd glorious trinity
Have mercy upon us.

From all evil and mischief;
from pride, vanity and hypocrisy;
from envy, hatred and malice;
and from all evil intent, Good Lord, deliver us.
From sloth, worldliness and love of money;
From hardness of heart and contempt
for your word and your laws, Good Lord, deliver us.
In all times of sorrow;
In all times of Joy,
In the hour of death, and at the day of judgement,
Good Lord, deliver us.

Give us true repentance;
forgive us our sins of negligence and ignorance
and our delibrate sins;
and grant us the grace of your Holy Spirit
to amend our lives according to your Holy word.

Holy God, holy and strong, holy and immortal, have mercy upon us.
