Adapted from The Book of Common Prayer
Almighty God, we pray you graciously to behold this your family, for whom our Lord Jesus Christ was willing to be betrayed, and given into the hands of sinners, and to suffer death upon the cross; who now lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Father, we are so grateful that you have invited us into your family through the work of Jesus. May we not take lightly the beauty and gravity of what you have called us in to. May we not take lightly the life you have for us. Holy Spirit, continually remind us of Jesus' sacrifice and the Father's love, that we may be saved on that day.
