Mighty God, thank you for being faithful and fulfilling all your promises. You have said that faith comes through hearing the word of God. Open my ears that I may be attentive to your voice. Help me to listen and respond. Remind me that you are trustworthy. You never fail your children. Increase my faith to know that neither death nor life, angels or rulers, things present or future, height or depth, or anything else in all creation, will be able to separate me from your love. Through Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen.
