He chose to give us birth through the word of truth, that we might be a kind of firstfruits of all he created.
Lord, into your hands I surrender myself, my family and friends, and all who confess your Holy name. Protect us today from all evil and from sins and temptations of the devil. Keep us safe from harm. Please enlighten my heart with the grace of your Holy Spirit and grant that I may ever be obedient to your commandments. Let me never be separated from you, and to know your Holy presence always. In Jesus name, Amen
