We humbly and wholeheartedly thank you, O loving Lord God, and give you all praise, honor, and glory for your great kindnesses and fatherly faithfulness, and for your tremendous gifts and mercies that you show us now and forever. We also give you heartfelt thanks, gracious holy Father, for all that you have created: heaven and earth, the sea and everything in it. You keep faith forever, and you bring justice to those who have suffered injustice. You have saved all those who cleave to you, those who have believed in you, trusted in you, faithfully served you, and forever remained in awe of you. Amen.

“The Lord says, “I will rescue those who love me.
I will protect those who trust in my name.”
(Psalm 91:14, NLT)
