Give Us Comfort that We Will Never See Death

Lord God, heavenly Father,
your dear Son, our Redeemer Christ Jesus said,
‘Whoever remains in my word will never see death.’
Pour out your Holy Spirit into our hearts
that your Son’s Word may come to us
and that we may hear it, hold it,
and commit ourselves to it with our whole heart,
and in the midst of death find comfort
that we will never see eternal death,
for the sake of your Son,
our Redeemer Christ Jesus.
