Lead Us to Grow in Faith

Almighty and eternal God,
by your Holy Spirit
you have revealed to us the gospel of your Son,
Christ Jesus.
Awaken our hearts
that we may sincerely receive your Word
and not make light of it,
or hear it without fruit
as did your people long ago.
Instead lead us to fear you
and daily grow in faith in your mercy
and finally through your Son Christ Jesus,
obtain eternal salvation;
through your Son, Jesus Christ our Lord,
who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
one true God, now and forever.
