Merciful God, grant me the heart of Christ, who walks with those who suffer.
Grant me the spirit of Christ, who goes among his enemies with love.
Grant me the courage of Christ, who stands by the afflicted and cries out.
Grant me the hope of Christ, who confronts injustice without despair.
Grant me the trust of Christ, who allows your Spirit to lead him.
Grant me the peace of Christ, who faces his end with clear eyes.
Grant me the life and death of Christ, whom you give to the world and raise from the dead.
Merciful God, grant me the presence of Christ, that it may be not I, but Christ who lives in me with your perfect love. Amen.
