God of power, you created us in your image and likeness and formed us in holiness and justice. Even when we sinned against you, you did not abandon us, but in your wisdom chose to save us by the incarnation of your Son. Save these your servants: free them from evil and the tyranny of the enemy. Keep far from them the spirit of wickedness, falsehood, and greed. Receive them into your kingdom and open their hearts to understand your Gospel, so that, as children of the light, they may become members of your Church, bear witness to your truth, and put into practice your commands of love. We ask this through Christ our Lord. R.. Amen.
