   Almighty God,
   you have broken the tyranny of sin
   and have sent the Spirit of your Son into our hearts
   whereby we call you Father:
   give us grace to dedicate our freedom to your service,
   that we and all creation may be brought
   to the glorious liberty of the children of God;
   through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord,
   who is alive and reigns with you,
   in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
   one God, now and for ever.
