Salvation is to be found through him alone; in all the world there is no one else whom God has given who can save us. – Acts 4:12
O Lord, our God, what measure of gratitude can we ever offer you! Our hearts are overflowing with gratefulness to our awesome God. You have loved us even before you created us, with a love so sublime, that you ordained a Savior, your own beloved Son Jesus, as our Messiah and Redeemer from the beginning of time, to grant us salvation and eternal life by his death, resurrection and ascension into heaven.
Lord, as we flounder under the dastardly effects of the pandemic afflicting us, fill our hearts with your peace and our minds with your wisdom. Enable us to identify with total transparency, the illusions we are still chasing after and separate them from the reality of the One Name in all the earth and under all the heavens capable of snatching us out of the throes of our delusions and purifying, sanctifying and freeing us.
That name is the beautiful name of JESUS! Bless us, dear Jesus, as in your name we send up our pleas to our dear Heavenly Father, in the blessed hope that the faith ingrained in us through your teachings and through the Holy Word of the Holy gospel of Truth, may find favor with our God, through the Holy Spirit, indwelling in our hearts. Dear God, hear the prayer of your faithful and grant us strength and courage, peace and understanding to do battle and overcome the obstacles to gaining salvation, in the Name of Jesus. Amen
