Ulrich Zwingli was born in 1484, 2 months after Martin Luther. He headed the Swiss Reformation, mainly from the church in Zurich. Like Luther, the Word of God transformed and regulated his life and thoughts. The following prayer reflects this conviction. It reflects Psalm 119:105, acknowledging that God’s Word directs all areas of the Christian’s life.
Almighty, eternal and merciful God, whose Word is a lamp unto my feet and a light unto my path, open and illuminate our minds, that we may purely and perfectly understand thy Word and that our lives may be conformed to what we have rightly understood, that in nothing we may be displeasing unto thy majesty, through Jesus Christ our Lord.
