Psalm 115:9-15 (NLT)
O Israel, trust the Lord!
He is your helper and your shield. . . .
He will bless those who fear the Lord,
both great and lowly.
May the Lord richly bless
both you and your children.
May you be blessed by the Lord,
who made heaven and earth.
John 1:1-4 (NLT)
In the beginning the Word already existed.
The Word was with God,
and the Word was God.
He existed in the beginning with God.
God created everything through him,
and nothing was created except through him.
The Word gave life to everything that was created,
and his life brought light to everyone.
May the light of Christ shine in Israel. Amen.
