Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock.
God our Father, we acknowledge you as our Living God, the Author of our salvation, who abides with us and saves us from the pits. Who holds and comforts us when we are afraid, Who strengthens and upholds us in our weaknesses and most importantly, Who forgives us when we repent for our sins with sincere and devout hearts. We gladly raise our voices in praise and worship, magnifying your Holy Name.
You have embellished us with new hearts by our conversion, and as Christians, living in Christ, we adhere to your Holy Word, in your gospel of Truth. You have endowed us with manifold grace by our faith, and we apply to you to save us from all peril and preserve us from wrong, while we actively engage in spreading the good news of your Kingdom, growing by the Spirit in wisdom, evangelizing to draw others to you, for the greater glory and majesty.
Jesus has taught us how to live sturdily righteous lives, he has given us your covenant of love and has saved us, by dying for us, justifying us before you and helping us to abide in him always. We seek aid from your Holy Spirit when in doubt or misery. Be with us, Lord, as we steadily walk in your Ways, doing your Holy Will and keeping our hope and trust in you, keeping focus on our purpose and staying clear of the contagion of sin, thus serving you with fervor and purity, in Jesus’ Name. Amen
