From the Book of Common Prayer
ALMIGHTY and everlasting God, mercifully
look upon our infirmities, and in all our
dangers and necessities stretch forth thy right
hand to help and defend us; through Jesus Christ
our Lord. Amen.
From the Book of Alternative Services
by grace alone you call us
and accept us in your service.
Strengthen us by your Spirit,
and make us worthy of your call;
through Jesus Christ our Lord,
who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever. Amen
