Dear Lord, I freely and with my whole heart yield all things to Your will and direction. You are mine and I am yours. Let this be for eternity.
I humbly pray that we may always prove ourselves a people who remember your favor and are glad to do Your will. Bless our land with honorable industry, sound learning, and pure manners. Save us from violence, discord, and confusion; from pride and arrogance, and from every evil way.
And finally, may the grace of Christ our Savior, and the Father's boundless love, with the Holy Spirit's favor, rest upon me, and all of us, from above. Thus may we abide in union, with each other and the Lord, and possess, in sweet communion, joys which earth cannot afford. This is all I ask through Jesus Christ our Lord.
