Help us, O God of our salvaion, and for the glory of Thy Name deliver us:  be merciful to our sins for Thy Name's sake.

Psalm 53:

Save me, O Lord, in thy name; and judge me in thy strength.

God, hear my prayer; give ear to the words of my mouth;

For strangers have risen up against me, and the mighty have sought after my soul, and they have not set God before their eyes.

For, behold, God is my helper, and the Lord is the protector of my soul.

Turn away evil from me upon my enemies, and scatter them in thy truth.

I will freely sacrifice unto Thee; and will give praise, O God, to thy name, because it is good.

For Thou hast delivered me out of all my trouble, and mine eye hath looked down upon mine enemies.

Gloria Patri et Filio et Spiritui Sancto. Amen.

V.  For the glory of thy name, deliver us.

R. And deal mercifully with our sins for thy name’s sake.

Let us pray.

Lord, we beseech Thee, in thy pity hear the prayers of thy people; that we who suffer justly for our sins may, for the glory of thy name, mercifully be delivered. Through Christ our Lord.  R. Amen.

We beseech Thee, therefore, help thy servants, whom Thou hast redeemed with thy Precious Blood.
