O God, Who knowest our hearts and seest our temptations, our struggles, and our deep distress: have pity upon us, and deliver us from the evil that wars against our souls. Thou art all-powerful, and we are weak and sinful; but our hope is in Thee, O faithful and good God. Release us from bondage to evil, and grant that henceforth we may serve Thee in the freedom of Thy holy love.
