Let Your Word Work in Us

Almighty God,
we thank you
that you have made your holy Word
proclaimed and heard among us.
In your mercy,
work in us true repentance,
that our faith in you may be strengthened,
our Christian love for each other may be increased,
and life among us all may be improved;
through your Son,
Jesus Christ our Lord.

Original in German:

Wir danken dir, allmächtiger Herr Gott, daß du uns dein heiliges Göttliches Wort hast verkündigen und hören lassen; wir bitten deine grundlose Barmherzigkeit, daß du uns solches gedeihen lassest zu Gottseliger wahrhaftiger Buße, und zu starkem Glauben gegen dir und zu Christlicher Liebe, und Besserung des Lebens unter uns Allen, durch Jesum Christum deinen Sohn, unsern Herrn, Amen.
