You are the trust of all the ends of the earth and of the farthest sea. Psalm 65:5 NASB
Jesus Christ is the atoning sacrifice for our sins, and not for ours only but also for the sins of the whole world. 1 John 2:2
You made each one of us with purpose and precision, Holy Creator, and then you sacrificed yourself for all of us. We trust your omnipotence and ask you to help us accept and not judge your children who do not look, think, or speak like we do. Amen.
