A Prayer For Mercy

Almighty and everlasting God, who art always more ready to hear than we to pray, and art wont to give more than either we desire or deserve; pour down upon us the abundance of Thy mercy; forgiving us those things whereof our consciences are afraid, and giving us those good things which we are not worthy to ask, much less to receive, but through the merits and mediation of Jesus Christ our Lord, in Whom we desire to be found, and in His name do we now approach the throne of Thy grace, and make mention of His righteousness only as the ground of our justification in the sight of our heavenly Father: to Whom, with the blessed Spirit, be ascribed all honor and dominion, world without end.

Amen.
