O Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, who didst gather round thee thy holy apostles and didst teach them the things concerning the kingdom of God: Grant that all those who come together in this convention may desire to be taught of thee, and to learn those things which thou dost desire to impart to us. Give us the open ear and the willing mind; clear our thoughts of all prejudice; remove all hindrances to the glad acceptance of thy holy will; and train us in all godliness of life, that we may be further equipped to serve thee and glorify thy holy name; who art with the Father and the Holy Spirit one God, world without end.
