How does this Good News help us to love the Lord our God with all of our heart, soul, mind, and strength? How does this Good News help us to love our neighbor as ourselves? Who is our neighbor?
Almighty and everlasting God, whose will it is to restore all
things in your well-beloved Son, the King of kings and Lord
of lords: Mercifully grant that the peoples of the earth,
divided and enslaved by sin, may be freed and brought together
under his most gracious rule; who lives and reigns with you
and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.
