A Collect to Not Excuse Giving in to Temptation

Gracious Father, who is patient with us in our weakness, keep us from taking advantage of your kindness as an excuse to give in to temptation, that even though your forgiveness is great, we might even more seek to please you always and live by your law of love, through Jesus Christ our Lord, who showed us love to the end and ascended to your right hand in the Holy Spirit. Amen. ‘What then? Should we sin because we are not under law but under grace? By no means!’ – Rom. 6:15
