Prayer: Our God in heaven: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, we bless and praise your name for giving us the comfort of your infallible and inerrant Word. Within the pages of inspired Scripture, we learn who you are and what you purpose to do for those you love. We know that this love was demonstrated in the giving of your beloved Son, who died for us when we were still sinners. Therefore, we can confidently say that your steadfast love endures forever. Because this is true, we can call out to you day and night. Regardless of the distress, we know that we have a loving and compassionate Father who stands willing and able to help us. Further, we can find our refuge in you in life and death because we know that to be absent from the body is to present with the Lord. We thank you for being our shield and defender, a present help in times of trouble. We thank you that no harm can come to us because you defend us against all our enemies. Therefore, we have good reason to praise and sing to you because your right-hand does marvelous things for those you love. Please grant us a more profound affection for you, our God. Please help us to respond to your love with acts of love for you and our neighbor. Forgive us when we walk arrogantly instead of humbly because we know that all we are is due to your infinite grace. Please help us serve you because your steadfast love endures forever. We pray all these things in the name of Christ our Lord. Amen.
