Lord God Almighty,
your eternal counsel orders all things,
and you have ordained your gracious purposes
for the lives of everyone.
Teach us to understand,
and with glad heart to obey,
your will for us;
knowing that without you
there can be no eternal success,
and with you no failure;
for your name’s sake.
