Prayer of the week

Almighty and everlasting God,
you are always more ready to hear than we to pray,
and give more than either we desire or deserve:
pour down upon us the abundance of your mercy,
forgiving us those things of which our conscience is afraid,
and giving us those good things
    which we are not worthy to ask,
save through the merits and mediation of Jesus Christ,
your Son our Lord. Amen
