The Prayer of John Calvin

I read in a biography of Calvin somewhere that Calvin began all of his lectures with the same prayer, which was this:

May the Lord grant that we may engage in the heavenly contemplation of the mysteries of God's heavenly wisdom with ever increasing devotion to God's glory and our edification. Amen.

Calvin- even when he says or does something that you don't care for, you have to admire his overall brilliance and piety. he might have been wrong on some things- but he sure was right, if you know what I mean. So thanks for the reminder.
