Head of the church,
you have called us to be holy partners with a heavenly calling to serve the gospel of our Savior.
As Jesus was most faithful in his serve to the one who appointed him
may we also be found faithful.
Together with Jesus Christ, we are a house fit for You to dwell in, our God,
if we hold firm the confidence and the pride that belong to our hope.
Therefore we pray that none of us may be found to have sinful and unbelieving hearts that turn away from you the living God.
So, through all the twists and turns,
the joys and sufferings of life,
may we hold on to our first confidence, firmly, to the end.
