May God strengthen us to be faithful to the covenant, through Jesus our peace. Amen.
God our refuge, you rescue us in times of danger. In hope we pray: O God, send us your loving mercy.
May God establish our hearts in fear of the Lord so that we may see rightly, love tenderly, and walk humbly with God. Amen.
