Psalm 18:6 (ESV)
In my distress I called upon the Lord;
to my God I cried for help.
From his temple he heard my voice,
and my cry to him reached his ears.
Psalm 11:4-7 (ESV)
4 The Lord is in his holy temple;
the Lord’s throne is in heaven;
his eyes see, his eyelids test the children of man.
5 The Lord tests the righteous,
but his soul hates the wicked and the one who loves violence.
6 Let him rain coals on the wicked;
fire and sulfur and a scorching wind shall be the portion of their cup.
7 For the Lord is righteous;
he loves righteous deeds;
the upright shall behold his face.
O Father God,
Surely Your salvation is near to those who fear You, that glory may dwell in their land. Surely Your Son Jesus is able to save to the uttermost those who draw near to You through him, since he always lives to make intercession for them. Surely we believe that You exist and that You reward those who seek You.
We earnestly seek Your protection, Your provision, Your guidance, and Your blessings upon Peter, Maurice, John, Paul, William, Bruce, Daniel, Edward, and James.
We thank You that Your ears hear our plea. We thank You that Your eyes see and Your eyelids test the children of men. We thank You for Your righteousness.
We thank You that glory will dwell in the bishops’ land. We thank You that Jesus will save them. We thank You for the bounty of Your rewards for them. We thank You that they shall behold Your face. Amen.
Psalm 85:9, Hebrews 7:25, 11:6
