We Have Your Word, Grant that We May Trust

veit-dietrichLord God, heavenly Father, in your special love and mercy you gave us your Son who became fully human and died on the cross for us. Pour your Holy Spirit into our hearts that we may put all our trust in him, just as the Centurion believed that Christ would help his sick servant, may we be assured of the forgiveness of our sins and eternal life. We have your Word: ‘Whoever believes in me will never see death.’ Dear Father in heaven, grant that we may believe with no doubts in our hearts, and remain in the faith until our last hour. Amen.
