Hebrews 13:22–25 (ESV)
Hebrews sets forth God’s grace in Christ, earned on the cross, ratified in the new covenant, and distributed in Word and Sacrament. By holding fast to the teaching of this sermon and by receiving God’s
grace through faith, we have fellowship with the writer 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.
