You hear the cries of your people, Lord. You are lifted in our praises. Let the young and the old bless your Holy Name, for You are good. You are the God who sees us. You are the God who heals. You are the God who protects us. You are the God of salvation. You are the One True God, the Light of the World. There is no one like you who goes out for your beloved. You work continually for the greater good and for your glory. Be honored by our praise, Lord God, in the name and authority of Jesus, according to Your good and perfect will. Amen.
“The Lord is king forever and ever; the nations perish from his land. O Lord, you hear the desire of the afflicted; you will strengthen their heart; you will incline your ear to do justice to the fatherless and the oppressed, so that man who is of the earth may strike terror no more.” (Psalm 10: 16-18 ESV)
