Yahweh, God of immortality,
before whom angels bow and archangels veil their faces,
enable me to serve You with reverence and godly fear.
You who are Spirit and requires truth in the inward parts,
help me to worship You in spirit and in truth.
You who are righteous, let me not harbour sin in my heart,
or indulge a worldly temper, or seek satisfaction in things that perish.
I hasten towards an hour when earthly pursuits and possessions will appear vain,
when it will be indifferent whether I have been rich or poor,
successful or disappointed,
admired or despised.
But it will be of eternal moment that I have mourned for sin,
hungered and thirsted after righteousness,
loved the Lord Jesus in sincerity, gloried in His cross.
May these objects engross my chief solicitude!
Produce in me those principles and dispositions that make Your service perfect freedom.
Expel from my mind all sinful fear and shame,
so that with firmness and courage I may confess the Redeemer before men,
go forth with Him bearing His reproach,
be zealous with His knowledge,
be filled with His wisdom,
walk with His circumspection,
ask counsel of Him in all things,
repair to the Scriptures for His orders,
stay my mind on His peace,
knowing that nothing can befall me without His permission,
appointment and administration.
Through Jesus Christ my Redeemer I pray. AMEN
