Dear Father, friend of the far and the near,
I am so thankful that Christ came and preached peace to those who were far off and to those who were near, so that we both can have access to you in the one Spirit, that we can enjoy peace together. It is so wonderful that we who are not Jews no longer have to be strangers and foreigners.
How good of you, Father, that we now can be citizens with the saints, that we can be members of your household, Christ's church.
What a wonderful church! You built it on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Christ Jesus himself being the cornerstone, in whom the whole structure is joined and grows together into a holy temple in the Lord.
Thank you that in him even I personally can be built into it in order to become a dwelling place for God in the Spirit.
In the name of Jesus. Amen.
