Do not consider what we have done against you

O merciful Father,
do not consider what we have done against you;
but what our blessed Savior has done for us.
Do not consider what we have made of ourselves,
but what He is making of us for you our God.
O that Christ may be wisdom and righteousness,
sanctification and redemption
to every one of our souls.
That his precious blood may cleanse us from all our sins,
and that your Holy Spirit may renew and sanctify our souls.
May He crucify our flesh with its passions and lusts,
and cleanse all our brothers and sisters in Christ across the earth.
O let not sin reign in our mortal bodies,
that we should obey it in its lusts.
But, being made free from sin,
let us be the servants of righteousness.
Let us commend our hearts to you,
and let all our ways be pleasing in your sight.
Through Jesus Christ our Lord,
who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever.  Amen.

John Wesley
