A Prayer Of Thanks For Rescue

Father, by sending Your Son, Jesus, You sought to reconcile all things to Yourself, whether things on earth or things in heaven, having made peace through the blood of the cross. For we, who once were alienated and enemies of the cross, are reconciled to You because we died to sin and rose again to new life in Christ. That great deliverance took place when You rescued us from the dominion of darkness and transferred us into the kingdom of Your beloved Son, in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins. We want to continue in the faith, grounded and steadfast, not being moved away from the hope of the gospel which we heard through Your Holy Spirit, reading of Scripture and through messengers of the Gospel. Amen.
