Seed-Grains of Prayer: Prayer After Receiving Absolution

“Almighty, Everlasting God, we have sinned against Thee in many ways, and for our sins have merited eternal condemnation; yet, since we believe that Thy beloved Son, Jesus Christ, our Lord, has wrought out for us the forgiveness of our sins and eternal salvation before Thee, and are now assured thereof by the Holy Gospel, and have our hearts strengthened by this holy absolution, we most humbly beseech Thee, grant us the power of Thy Holy Spirit that we may henceforth flee from sin, and lead a truly godly life in Thy calling; through Jesus Christ, our Lord.  Amen.”

Wilhelm Loehe, Seed-Grains of Prayer, #237
