So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
Therefore, since we have these promises, dear friends, let us purify ourselves from everything that contaminates body and spirit, perfecting holiness out of reverence for God.
2 Corinthians 7:1
Prayer of Thankfulness
Dear Father God, I come before You with a grateful heart for the many blessings that You bestow on us day by day, and praise You that Your mercies are new every morning and You have provided for all our needs and more besides. You are a great and generous God. Praise Your glorious name, for ever and ever, Amen.
Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers over a multitude of sins.
For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved.
