Gracious and all-loving Father,
out of love for all people
you spoke your Word
who became flesh for our salvation.
May your Word transform me
so that the message of your Son,
our Lord, may be echoed through my teaching.
Allow me to guide the hearts of those whom I
teach in such a way that they will enter more
deeply into your way of truth and salvation.
Grant me the insight needed to lead them
to know, love, and serve you.
With the guidance of the Holy Spirit,
may they become hearers and followers of your Word,
so that they might help transform the world
to follow the way of life to which your Son has called us all,
for he lives and reigns with you
and the Holy Spirit,
one God, forever and ever.
