2 TIMOTHY 2: 1-13
Collect: Almighty God, in Jesus you have called common people to be your servants to love life eternal and overcome zeal for worldly life; as a wheat grain falls into the earth and dies and bears much fruit. Grant us wisdom and knowledge to read, mediate and interpret Your Holy Word. Continue to grant Your guidance and inspiration that many young people may be trained theologically; fill with Your Spirit that 23both students and theological teachers may exercise their faith to establish justice, righteousness and peace through Jesus Christ, who lives and reigns with You in unity with the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever.
