I would easily wreck it all

Lord God, You have appointed me as a Bishop and Pastor in Your Church, but you see how unsuited I am to meet so great and difficult a task.  If I had lacked Your help, I would have ruined everything long ago.  Therefore, I call upon You: I wish to devote my mouth and my heart to you; I shall  teach the people.  I myself will learn and ponder diligently upon You Word. Use me as Your instrument — but do not forsake me, for if ever I should  be on my own, I would easily wreck it all.

– Martin Luther
