For Zeal

O almighty and merciful Father, who pourest Thy benefits upon us,
forgive the unthankfulness with which we have requited Thy goodness. We
have remained before Thee with dead and senseless hearts, unkindled with
love of Thy gentle and enduring goodness. Turn Thou us, O merciful
Father, and so shall we be turned. Make us with our whole heart to
hunger and thirst after Thee, and with all our longing to desire Thee.
Make us with our whole heart to serve Thee alone and with all our zeal
to seek those things which are well-pleasing in Thy sight; for the sake
of Thine only begotten Son, to whom with Thee and the Holy Ghost be all
honour and glory, for ever and ever. Amen.
