|May the living water of the Holy Spirit fill my heart, |
and may rivers of living water flow from my heart to the glory of God,
and for the salvation of God's people.
To the Glory of the Holy Trinity. Amen.

Lord! I am a miracle of your goodness, wisdom, and omnipotence, inasmuch as I was brought by you from nonexistence into existence.
Inasmuch as I am preserved until now by you in this existence; inasmuch as by the mercy, bounties, and love to mankind of your Only begotten Son, I shall inherit eternal life, provided I am faithful unto you; inasmuch as by your mysterious act, offering yourself through your Son as a sacrifice, I am restored from the terrible fall, I am redeemed from eternal destruction, I glorify your goodness, your infinite power, your wisdom!
But complete the miracle of your goodness, omnipotence, and wisdom upon me, a miserable sinner, and by ways known to you, save me, your unworthy servant, and lead me into your eternal kingdom, make me worthy of the life that never grows old, of the day that has no evening.
