Prayer: Grant, Almighty God, since we are all lost in ourselves, that we may desire to obtain life where it is laid up for us and where you do manifest it, namely, in your Son. And grant that we may so embrace the face that has been exhibited to us in the sacrifice of his death that we may be regenerated by his Spirit.
And thus being born again, may we devote ourselves wholly to you and so glorify your name in this world that we may at length be partakers of that glory that the same, your only begotten Son, has acquired for us.
(Lifting Up our Hearts, p. 71)
