Almighty and everlasting God, in whom we live and move and have our being,
who hast created us for thyself, so that our hearts are restless until they find
rest in thee: Grant unto us such purity of heart and strength of purpose, that
no selfish passion may hinder us from knowing thy will, and no weakness from
doing it. In thy light may we see life clearly, and in thy service find perfect
freedom; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
(The Methodist Book of Worship for Church and Home, 1965)
