Collect for Thursday in the Fourth Week of Lent

  1. Almighty and most merciful God, 
    drive from us all weakness of body, mind, and spirit; 
    that, being restored to wholeness, 
    we may with free hearts become what you intend us to be 
    and accomplish what you want us to do; 
    through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, 
    one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
