When we heard this, we lost heart, and everyone’s courage failed because of you, for the Lord your God is God in heaven above and earth below…Now please swear to me by the Lord that you will show kindness to my father’s family…Give me a sure sign that you will…save us from death. (11-13)
God, you are God in heaven above and earth below. You are holy. And because of our sins, we feared you, deserving death. But Lord, by your kindness and mercy, you saved us, not because of our righteousness, but because of your mercy. (Titus 3:4-5)
Now you have given us a sure sign of our salvation by giving us your Holy Spirit who dwells within us. (Ephesians 1:13)
Thank you so much for your kindness and mercy to us.
In Jesus’ name, amen.
