Prayer for you

I shared with my students on Monday about the life of Ulrich Zwingli, one of the Reformers of the sixteenth century. Like most of his contemporaries, Zwingli was a man of courage, faith and zeal. He paid the highest price for his Christian ideals. Here is a moving prayer of his:

"Almighty, eternal and merciful God, whose Word is a lamp unto our feet and a light unto our path, open and illuminate our minds, that we may purely and perfectly understand thy Word and that our lives may be conformed to what we have rightly understood, that in nothing we may be displeasing unto thy majesty, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen."

Now, that's a prayer worth praying often.

Living in Grace
