Ut in nomine Jesu

Almighty God, who hast taught us that in the Name of Jesus Christ alone is salvation: Mercifully grant that thy faithful people, ever glorying in his Name, may make thy salvation known to all the world; through the same Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

¶ Or this:
Almighty Father, who didst give thine only Son the Name most dear to thee and needful to mankind, betokening not his majesty but our salvation: Write it upon our hearts, we beseech thee, that we may grow by love into the likeness of our only Saviour, who liveth and reigneth with thee in the unity of the Holy Ghost, ever one God, world without end. Amen.
