We praise you, God of David, Solomon, and Hezekiah, for your faithfulness to your promises, for hearing the pleas of your servants, and for blessing far and beyond all expectations. 

We love you, as did they, and seek to please you by walking in the decrees of your Son and our Savior Jesus Christ.

Give us wisdom, O Lord, that we might measure our steps rightly, promote your justice among your people, and open the doors of salvation to many.

Give us faith that we might never waver in our service to you, just as our Lord never veered from his mission while on earth.
