Father, we are weary of this world’s struggles and of our attempts to acquire rest by ourselves. Through the message of Your dear Son’s death for our sins and resurrection for our justification give us new and eternal Life right now, life free of the fear of judgment today, and free from the anxiety of being judged on the Last Day. We ask in the name of Him who died the death we deserved and and was raised to Life that we might be given present and eternal Life, free of any accusation, the Same Christ Jesus who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, now and forever.
