"Deus virtutem, cujus est omne quod est optimum, insere pectoribus nostris amorem tui Nominis, et praesta nobis religionis incrementum, ut quae bona sunt nutrias, et quae nutrita custodias, Per Jesum Christum Dominum Nostrum..."

What is the word "virtutem" doing in this sentence? Is it an oddly placed object of "insere" or what?

The English Prayer Book version begins "Lord of all power and might, who art author and giver of all good things; Graft in our hearts the love of thy Name, increase in us true religion, nourish us with all goodness, and of thy great power keep us in the same, through Jesus...."

I apologize if this is a dumb question.
