Grant That We May Obey You

John Calvin, Prayer for Sunday 7-24-2022

Grant, Almighty God, that since you are pleased kindly to invite us to yourself, and have consecrated your Word for our salvation—O grant that we may willingly, and from the heart, obey you, and become so teachable, that what you have designed for our salvation may not turn to our perdition; but may that incorruptible seed by which you regenerate us into a hope of the celestial life so drive its roots into our hearts, and bring forth fruit, that your name may be glorified; and may we be so planted in the courts of your house, that we may grow and flourish, and that fruit may appear through the whole course of our life, until we shall at length enjoy that blessed life which is laid up for us in heaven, through Christ our Lord.

Amen.
