~Scripture Sentence~

Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! By his great mercy he has given us a new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead.

1 Peter 1:3


Almighty and eternal God,

the strength of those who believe 

and the hope of those who doubt: 

may we, who have not seen, have faith 

and receive the fullness of Christ’s blessing;

who is alive and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,

one God, now and for ever.
