by your grace, your servant Silas
proved a trustworthy companion to your apostles;
make us loyal to your friends and ours,
that we may encourage one another on our way,
for the sake of your Son, our Saviour Jesus Christ.
your kingdom come,
on earth as in heaven.
grant us the serenity
to accept the things we cannot change,
the courage to change the things we can,
and the wisdom to know the difference.
