Hebrews 13:22–25 (ESV)
appeal to you, brothers, bear with my word of exhortation, for I have written to you briefly. 23 You should know that our brother Timothy has been released, with whom I shall see you if he comes soon. 24 Greet

of Hebrews and all the saints and look forward to our inheritance with them in heaven.
I pray: Grant us grace,
O Lord, to bear all the crosses of this life. Bring us, with all the saints, into the heavenly city. Amen.
