Behold the wood of the cross, on which hung the Saviour of the world. Almighty and eternal God, who ever seekest not the death but the life of sinners, mercifully hear our prayer; deliver them from the worship of idols and for the praise and glory of thy name, take them into thy grace. Almights and eternal God, the comfort of the afflicted and the strength of the burdened; may the prayers of those that call upon thee in any trouble be heard by thee; that all may rejoice to be helped by thy mercy in their needs. Through our Lord, God. Amen.
