O God, without faith it is impossible to please You, grant that I may with such assurance receive the unsearchable mysteries of Your truth, and embrace Your gracious promises, that faith may be counted unto me for righteousness, and all my words and works may be acceptable to You. Give me grace to walk always in Your presence, and to live by the word that proceeds out of Your mouth, that I may rightly use this world and not abuse it as You shall lead. Grant that I shall keep my eyes looking forward to the things that are eternal; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
