Ev. Luth. Gebets-Schatz

Jesus Christ, Son of the Almighty God!  You no longer dwell among us on earth in poverty and wretchedness.  You have ascended to the right hand of Your Father as Lord over all.  We beseech You: send us Your Holy Spirit.  Give us devout servants of the Church who hold fast to Your Word.  Fight Satan and all earthly tyrants, and mightily preserve Your kingdom on earth, until all Your foes lie beneath Your feet, and through You we triumph over sin, death, and all things.  Amen.Johannes Eichorn, 1511-1564
