Passages of Holy Scripture
Fear God and give Him the glory, because the time of His judgment has come; and worship Him who made heaven and earth and the sea and the springs of water. Rev. 14.
He who serves God with gladness is acceptable to Him. His prayer reaches up to the clouds; the prayer of the wretched pierces through the clouds, and does not desist until it enters [God’s ears], and does not cease until the Most High sees.
Let the book of this law not leave your mouth, instead, meditate on it day and night, that you may keep and do according to what is written in it. Then you will be successful in all that you do and will be able to handle things wisely.
O Jesus Christ, my Lord and God, You know—yes, You have taught us Yourself how great is the weakness and foolishness of man, yes, how he can do absolutely nothing without Your help and assistance. Where he trusts and believes in himself, he is bound to fall into a thousand disasters.
Have mercy on me, dear Lord, on account of this works-righteousness of Your child. Graciously assist me, that through Your enlightenment I may see what is righteous, through Your admonition desire it, and through Your power finally also might obtain it. Now I surrender myself, yes, commend myself wholly and completely, in body and soul, to You alone, who with God the Father and God the Holy Ghost are praised, one true and Almighty God forever and ever.
