we pray that you would
uphold us
through the right knowledge
of your divine Word
through your Holy Spirit.
Grant us peace and health
as we do the work
of our callings
with your blessing;
through your dear Son,
Jesus Christ our Lord.

Original in German:

O allmächtiger, ewiger Gott, wir bitten dich, du wollest uns ja bei der rechten Erkenntnis deines göttlichen Worts durch deinen H. Geist gnädiglich erhalten, Friede und Gesundheit verleihen, daß wir die Werke unsers Berufs seliglich mögen ausrichten, durch Jesum Christum, deinen lieben Sohn, unsern Herrn.
