For everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved. – Romans 10:13
God of Hope, God of all peoples of the earth, from beginning to end, from generation to generation, you are Omnipotent and Omniscient, and your Spirit abounds upon the earth, dwelling in the hearts of the faithful. You are not the God of some, to the exclusion of others. When all creation is yours, everything contained in it belongs to you and you alone. We bow in reverential worship to you, God of our Salvation.
Jesus, in his ministry upon the earth, revealed your plan of redemption for the whole of sinful mankind, whereby, he had come on your command, to release the world of the disgrace of evil and eternal death, replacing it with salvation for the faithful and eternal life in heaven. He showed us the way to attain this promise of salvation and a new life in Christ, by preaching your Word, obeying your Will, performing your works, and evangelizing the good news to all peoples of the world.
He commanded us to stay true to your new covenant of love for one another. He made relevant the obtaining of salvation for all, who called upon Him, in faith, believers and unbelievers who converted to the faith by a renewal of self through baptism and the Power of your Holy Spirit. Righteousness of faith is true righteousness. As Christians, bless us Lord, to faithfully bear the good tidings of your Kingdom to everyone on the earth, carrying the Word of Truth to unbelievers, which is the way and means to beget faith, and to bring men to you, to be saved through Christ our Lord. Amen
