Lord God, let knowledge and love be joined permanently together in my faith, as the perfect wedding of groom and bride. Teach me your ways, and help me to obey your every command.

Make your truth my clothing and protection, for I seek your wisdom night and day. Let the facts of the gospel be precious to me, and its commands always in my heart.

Make my teaching and life a powerful argument before those outside of Christ.

The doctrine of Christ is light and life, O Savior. Let his words be our constant meditation and our insistent message to all.
