O Lord, take our minds and think through them;
take our lips and speak through them;
take our lives and live out your life;
take our hearts and set them on fire with love for thee;
and guide us ever by thy Holy Spirit,
through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
—The Prayer at Eventide, written by William H.M.H. Aitken and reprinted in Life Revealed (Philippians 2) on the Calvin Institute of Christian Worship website.
