Heavenly Father, thank You that You have not finished with the nation of Israel, despite their apostasy and idolatry. Thank You that Your promises to both Israel and the Church are fulfilled in Christ, through Whose sacrificial death and glorious resurrection, all things have been made new. Thank You that the day is coming when the earth will be filled with the glory of God, as the waters cover the sea. You alone are worthy of our praise and thanksgiving. In Jesus' name I pray, AMEN.
