O Lord Jesus Christ, great Shepherd of the sheep, who seekest those that are gone astray, bindest up those that are broken, and healest those that are sick: Bless, we beseech thee, all efforts that are made to convert souls unto thee. Open the deaf ears of the wandering, that they may hear the words which belong unto their peace; and grant that those whom thou dost raise to newness of life may through thy grace persevere unto the end, of thy mercy, blessed Lord, who livest and reignest with the Father and the Holy Spirit, one God, world without end.
