July 10, 2023 This prayer is from the third century the Old Gallican Sacramentary.

Grant Your servants, O God, to be set on fire with Your Spirit, strengthened by Your power, illuminated by Your splendor, filled with Your grace, and to go forward with Your aid. Give them, O Lord, a right faith, perfect love, true humility. Grant, O Lord, that there may be in us simple affection, brave patience, persevering obedience, perpetual peace, a pure mind, a right and honest heart, a good will, a holy conscience, spiritual strength, a life unspotted and unblameable; and after having manfully finished our course, may we be enabled happily to enter into Your kingdom; through Jesus Christ our Lord Amen.
