“Won for us by His blood” by John Calvin

“Almighty God, since You have today made Yourself known to us so intimately in the gospel of Christ our Lord, grant that we might learn to lift our eyes to the light set before us, and keep them there fixed, so that we may be directed ever to hold to the path and struggle to reach the goal to which You call us; until at last, having completed the course of Your calling, we attain to You and enjoy with You that glory which Your only-begotten Son has won for us by His blood. Amen.”

–John Calvin, On Prayer: Conversation with God, Ed. I. John Hesselink (Louisville, KY: Westminster John Knox Press, 2006), 41.
