Psalm 27:13-14 (NRSV) I believe that I shall see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living. Wait for the Lord; be strong, and let your heart take courage; wait for the Lord !
Gracious God, you are good and your mercy endures forever. You love us even when we do not deserve to be loved. You have mercy on us even when we have sinned against each other. Forgive us. Restore us. Renew us, O God. We are encouraged by your steadfast love. And we believe that we will see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living. Help us to wait on you. In the name of Jesus, we pray. Amen.
