62.  Prayer on the Third Sunday of Advent.johann eichhorn 1565

 

O Lord God, heavenly Father, You permitted Your Son to become man and come into this world for this reason, that He might bridle the tyranny of the devil, aid us poor men against sin and death, and make us blessed forever.  We beseech You: so guide and lead our hearts by Your Holy Spirit, that we have regard for nothing besides Your Word, and so might escape all stumbling blocks set before us by our reason, being found among the little band of those who are not offended in Your Son Christ Jesus, but instead through Him come to everlasting blessedness.  Amen. Johannes Eichorn (1511-1564)
