Thank You that You lift the fallen, the weary and those bent beneath their loads. All of mankind need Your Help. You Fulfill the desires of those who cry out to You. Thank You for Your Grace, by which we are saved, and not of anything that we do. You have given us new lives from Christ Jesus to produce Fruit for others, especially the oppressed and needy.

Thank You for The Gift of Eternal Life and all that we have inherited as being Your Adopted Children, through Jesus Christ, Our Lord. Thank You that The Holy Spirit makes our hearts receptive to You, for He changes our selfish ways and gives us the right attitude of mind and heart as we submit ourselves to Him, and this we do gladly.

May the things we do cause You to be blessed and cause others to call upon You, The True Living God. We are glad that we can share Your Word and Your Plan of Salvation with others and that we can love and bless each other, for we are not ashamed of The Message of Christ, for it is Your Powerful Method of bringing all who believe it to heaven.

We thank You Father God, for it was Your choice to bring us back to You, for we ourselves could do nothing. We value the Truth that we are joint-heirs with Jesus, Our Sinless Redeemer. Who are we to say You are unjust or unfair? All Glory be to You because of Jesus, In His Precious Name, AMEN.
