The Prayer of the College of Readers
At our Baptism
You removed from us the stony heart of sin
And gave us a living heart of flesh.
We pray You,
Pour such grace into our hearts
That we may be strong in the face of evil;
Overflowing with compassion to the poor and needy;
Eloquent in proclaiming You to the world;
And simple, sweet and humble in our daily lives:
To Your greater glory in Eternal Heaven.
