Everyone comes naked from their mother's womb, and as everyone comes, so they depart. They take nothing from their toil that they can carry in their hands.
Know therefore that the Lord your God is God; he is the faithful God, keeping his covenant of love to a thousand generations of those who love him and keep his commandments.
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.
