We are grateful that we can depend on you, and know that nothing can separate us from your love, nothing on Earth or in Heaven, nothing can separate us from the love of God. Thank you for hearing our prayers. May we be faithful and trust that you hear our prayers and answer them, that through our faith and the scriptures you help us to get closer to you and trust in you to answer our prayers, plus all those that have brought requests, that they will know that you are there, you are listening, and you are answering as we have faith and put our lives in your hands. God bless us as we continue to worship. Bless all those that need your touch either spiritually or physically, and help us to always trust in you, but serve you with our whole hearts. In Christ’s name we pray. Amen.
