Dear Triune God,
from your word we need to learn the gospel, for you desire to form and transform us by the it into citizens of the new kingdom.
Helps us to listen to the many ways the Bible teaches us what the message means:
it is for the sake of the faith of your chosen people,
it teaches us truth that leads to godliness
it teaches us the hope of eternal life promised to us by you who do not lie
it is good new entrusted to us for sharing.
Give to every community of believers leaders who have a good grasp of the Word, people who are not content with a C+, so they can preach and also refute those who contradict it.
We pray for the grace and peace from God the Father and from Jesus Christ
for your kingdom,
for every believing community,
and for each of us.
