O God, we thank you for a love which will not let us go and for a walk with us in the valley of the shadow of death. We thank you for the steadfast promises to strengthen and sustain us. We give thanks for your powerful presence and triumphant love which is our hope and comfort, our very assurance that life is ever lord over death and that love can never lose through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
-- Pastor Joe C. Scott Sr.
