Dear teacher God,
teach us your gospel, that our training may be in divine truth that is known by faith.
Make our aim to teach love that comes from a pure heart,
a good conscience,
and sincere faith.
Motivate us to turn from all sinful behavior,
and to pay no attention to false teachers, for they would deceive us.
God, we trust the faithful saying,
the saying that is worthy of full acceptance,
that Jesus Christ came into the world to save sinners,
and to give eternal life to all who believe.
And God, because your love for the world is so great,
and salvation came at such a high cost,
we acknowledge you the King of the Ages,
immortal, invisible, the only God,
we ascribe to you,
honor and glory forever and ever. Amen.
