Grant Us an Understanding Heart

wilhelm_loeheLord God almighty,
everlasting and gracious God,
grant me and all Christians
a heart that will daily understand your Word through the Holy Spirit,
and sumbit to the easy yoke and light burden of Jesus Christ,
obedient to his holy Word.

“easy yoke…” is a reference to Matthew 11:30
