Therefore, my brothers and sisters, make every effort to confirm your calling and election. For if you do these things, you will never stumble, and you will receive a rich welcome into the eternal kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. 2 Peter 1:10-11
Dear Heavenly Father, we bless your Holy Name, in the three entities of Father, Son and Holy Spirit, yet one, true and Living God. We are your anointed people, chosen from among the human race, to fulfill your plan of eternal salvation and redemption for the whole of mankind. Our purpose therefore Lord, is to be true to our calling, diligently and maturely clinging to and growing in faith, and expanding our works to the whole of humanity.
Your apostles have inculcated in your people the true dictates of your word and we are exhorted to assume the cloak of righteousness and become Christ-like in our works of faith expansion and of humble service, with the earnestness of evangelists and not mere nominal Christians. We are called by way of your Divine Providence of predestined salvation for all believers and prevailed upon, to repentance, faith, and new obedience through the sanctification of the Spirit. We thus become congregated to the highest order of your elect people, partakers of your Kingdom and its inheritance by virtue of the grace of redemption obtained for us by Jesus, who we truly represent while on earth.
All are called, Lord, but few are chosen according to their fidelity. Assist us Lord. to persevere, even in the face of persecution and to proceed forward with steadfastness, alacrity, and integral joy. For it will obtain for us the fruits of entrance into your consecrated Presence where we shall be ministered to, abundantly, freely, and in the most honourable manner, into the everlasting kingdom of your glory. In Jesus’ Name we hope to attain. Amen
