Prayer on First Pentecost–Gebets-Schatz

from Evangelische-Lutherischer Gebets-Schatz (Concordia, 1881)



Lord Jesus Christ, Son of the almighty God!  We pray you: through Your beloved Word, grant us Your Holy Spirit within our hearts, that He would rule us and lead us according to your will, and comfort us in every kind of affliction and misfortune.  May He lead us into Your truth and against all error, so that we stand firm in faith, in love and all good works increasing.   Through a certain hope in Your grace, that You have purchased us with Your death, may we be blessed forever; for You reign with the Father and the Holy Spirit.  Amen.

(Johann Eichhorn)

Johann Sciurus (also: Eichhorn, Aichorn; born around 1518 in Nuernberg; died November 3, 1564 in Koenigsberg (Prussia)) was a German mathematician, philologian, and Lutheran theologian. http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Johann_Sciurus
