God Almighty, you who created all things and who have made possible both our salvation and eternal life, give us the humility that befits us as human beings. Without the goodness that you pour out over all people, we could neither eat, nor learn, nor invent. By your grace alone is anything possible for us, and we desire to live in complete acknowledgement of this truth. The work accomplished is by your grace. The growth of your Church is by your grace. The heart touched by your Word is by your grace. Continue, Lord, to work through us. Amen.
