A Special Prayer.
O GOD, Who never forsakest those that hope in Thee: grant that we may ever keep that which Thou hast given us by Thy Word as an anchor of our souls, sure and steadfast, to preserve us unshaken and secure in all the storms of this life; Through Jesus Christ our saviour. Amen.
The Lord bless you and keep you;
The Lord make His face shine upon you,
And be gracious unto you;
The Lord lift up His countenance upon you,
And give you peace.
May God bless you all and ‘The Church of Jerusalem and the Christian Nation’, Amen.
