"Gracious, all-knowing Father,
we praise You for Your infinite wisdom,
and for Your wise and holy purposes that
govern all You do, and all You permit to be done.
We rejoice and take heart from the precious
truth that nothing befalls us but by Your
loving will toward us Your children.
We pray that You will protect Your church
from harmful error, and lead Your flock
in the path of truth.
Expose our idols, O God.
And grant us to treasure Christ
above all things.
In His name, we pray,
John Piper, Life as a Vapor
