you called Martin Luther and others to reform your church
and to teach that we should trust in you alone;
give us boldness to proclaim the faith in our day,
and keep your church true to you at all times;
through our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.
hallowed be your name
on earth as in heaven.
God of work and rest and pleasure,
grant that what we do this week may be for us an offering
rather than a burden;
and for those we serve, may it be the help they need.
