Good and Gracious God, you have been the source of hope for all generations. Before the mountains and the seas were established, you were there. After all have fallen away, you will remain.
Deepen my trust in your eternal care for me and those I love. Abide with me in my living, in my dying, and in my life to come. Give me the comfort of knowing I am yours now and forevermore. Amen.
A Blessing for You
May the LORD bless you and take care of you;
May the LORD be kind and gracious to you;
May the LORD look on you with favor and give you peace.
