Almighty God the Father,
set the reign of your eternal kingdom
upon the heart of my dying flesh
that I who would pass from the earth
as a vapor in the wind
shall live in your reign as a spirit of the King.
Redeemer of all God’s creation,
fill my heart with the unfailing forgiveness
of your eternal sacrifice,
that the infinite abundance of your divine grace
may overwhelm the dark sin of my human heart.
Overflow my life with an excess of your immortal presence,
that the power of the eternal God may forever crush
the weakness of my tempted flesh.
