“Almighty God, who through the preaching of Thy servants, the Blessed Reformers, has caused the light of the gospel to shine forth: Grant we beseech Thee, that knowing its saving power, we may faithfully guard and defend it against all enemies, and joyfully proclaim it, so the salvation of souls and the glory of Thy Holy Name: through Thy Son Jesus Christ our Lord, who liveth and reigneth with Thee and the Holy Spirit, one God, world without end. Amen.”
