For as the new heavens and the new earth, which I will make, shall remain before me, says the Lord, so shall your descendants and your name remain. Isaiah 66:22

Jesus said, “The gates of Hades will not prevail against my church.” Matthew 16:18

Lord Jesus, though your church faces struggles, conflicts within, and attacks from without, remind us that it is still your Church. Help us to rise beyond institutional trappings to live as the body of Christ in all we think, do, or say. In your name we pray. Amen.
