Merciful and eternal God, heavenly Father,
we thank you that you have revealed to us
the glory of your Son
and let the light of your Gospel shine on us.
We pray that you would guide us by this light
that we may walk diligently as Christians in all good works,
always be strengthened by your grace,
and conduct our lives in all godliness;
through your beloved Son,
Jesus Christ our Lord,
who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
one true God, now and forever.
