O Father of all mercy, you have begun your work in us.
Continue to fill us with all the dimensions of wisdom and knowledge.
May we be fully certain in our hearts and fully aware how the Spirit,
who has raised up our Lord,
also enlivens the faith within us with the same power and strength.
Through him we have also risen from the dead by his mighty power,
which works in us through your holy Word.
Help us to grow in the knowledge of your dear Son, our Lord Jesus Christ,
and to remain firm in confessing his blessed Word.
Martin Luther, 1483 – 1546, German Reformer
Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly,
teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom,
singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs,
with thankfulness in your hearts to God.
And whatever you do, in word or deed,
do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus,
giving thanks to God the Father through him.
