You Have Called Us into Your Vineyard

Lord God, heavenly Father,
through your precious Word
you have called us into your vineyard.
Send your Holy Spirit into our hearts
that we may labor faithfully in your vineyard,
shun sin and all offense,
obediently keep your Word
and do your will,
and put our whole and only trust in your grace,
which you have poured on us generously
through your Son Jesus Christ,
that we may obtain eternal salvation through him;
who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
one true God,
now and forever.
