The Lord will rescue me from every evil deed and bring me safely into his heavenly kingdom. (2 Timothy 4:18 ESV)
Hymn ELH 487:1-3 O Jesus, Lord of Heavenly Grace
O Jesus, Lord of heavenly grace,
Thou Brightness of Thy Father’s face,
Thou Fountain of eternal light,
Whose beams disperse the shades of night.
Come, holy Sun of heavenly love,
Send down Thy radiance from above;
And to our inmost hearts convey
The Holy Spirit’s cloudless ray.
And we the Father’s help will claim,
And sing the Father’s glorious name;
His powerful help we now implore,
That we may stand, to fall no more.
Heavenly Father, thank you for taking care of my needs in this life and for Your promise of eternal life by Your grace, through faith in Your Son, Jesus. In His name I pray. Amen.
