Intercession, Prayers Of Church, Short

Hear Not As We Ask Or Deserve

Heavenly Father,

you have promised to hear what we ask in the name of your Son:

Accept and fulfil our petitions, we pray,

not as we ask in our ignorance,

nor as we deserve in our sinfulness,

but as you know and love us in your Son Jesus Christ our Lord.

Amen.

 

– The Book of Common Prayer
