Almighty and everlasting God,
who art always more ready to hear than we to pray,
and art wont to give more than either we desire, or deserve;

which we are not worthy to ask,
but through the merits and mediation
of Jesus Christ, thy Son, our Lord.

save through the merits and mediation
of Jesus Christ your Son our Lord.
