“No king” is not a good thing. “No king” and the world falls into disarray, everyone does what is right in their own eyes.
“What do you worship?” What is of highest worth to you? What do you hold most dear? What is it that you orient you life around? Because whatever you orient your life around is going to determine where everything else in your life falls into place.
Graciously keep us from all adversity, so that, unhindered in mind and body alike, we may pursue in freedom of heart the things that are yours.
Aparta de nosotros todos los males, para que, con el alma y el cuerpo bien dispuestos, podamos con libertad de espíritu cumplir lo que es de tu agrado.
No necesitamos intentar demostrar cuán buenos y piadosos somos, debemos reconocer que somos pecadores, que estamos perdidos y que necesitamos a alguien que pueda salvarnos, que pueda encuéntranos.
We don’t need to try to prove how good and pious we are, we need to recognize that we are sinners, that we are lost, and that we are in need of someone that can save us, that can “find” us.
