Lord of the Nations, thank you that you do not change, you remain the same from before the beginning of time into eternity. Your word says that you are good to all; you have compassion on all you have made. Give us, your people, a great love for your body, the church. May we love, serve and worship together, being filled with faithfulness and joy. May we grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To you be glory, both now and forever. Through Jesus Christ, our Lord, Amen.
