Blessed are all those who put their trust in Him
Father in Heaven, I am indeed blessed; our family is blessed and grateful for Your creation of us -- and for Your preservation of us, perhaps for such a time as this. For it seems that he whole earth is corrupt before You and that it is filled with violence as in the days of Noah. Therefore we hear You weeping, for You desire that none should perish but have eternal Life. And we remember Noah, who walked with You, and was preserved by You with his family. Therefore we thank You for bringing that to our remembrance, O God, and rejoice with trembling to know that blessed are are those who put their trust in Your Son, the Christ, our Jesus, in Whom we live and move and have our bring, and Who, by Your Holy Spirit, also indwells us, even now and also forever... and ever... Amazing grace. Thank You, Almighty, Triune God. Increase in us, we pray, that Your Light may pierce the darkness of this broken world and bring many sons (and daughters) to glory.
