Almighty God, in your unfailing mercy
keep your church safe and holy.
Rule and guide your people always,

Jesus Christ our Lord,
who lives and reigns
with you and the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and forever.
Amen.

Lord God,
you have given all holy Scriptures for our learning.
Lead us to hear them,
read, note, learn, and inwardly digest them.
Encourage and support us by your holy word,
so that we may always hold onto
the joyful hope of eternal life,
which you have given us
in our Saviour Jesus Christ.
For he lives and reigns
with you and the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and forever.
Amen.
