Grant, Almighty God,
since the doctrine of Thy gospel sounds daily in our ears when Thou invites us so kindly by Thy amazing clemency and stretch out Thy hand by Thine only begotten Son —
Grant, I pray Thee, that we may be of a teachable and flexible disposition, and that we may sincerely submit to Thee,
And since Thy law contains so many dreadful examples of Thy wrath, may we be moved by them, and may we walk with fear and trembling in obedience to Thy Word, that at length we may enjoy that inheritance Thou hast promised for us in Thy heavenly kingdom, by the same Christ our Lord. Amen.
