“The nations raged, but your wrath came, and the time for the dead to be judged, and for rewarding your servants…and for destroying the destroyers of the earth.”  Revelation 11:18

Stir up Your power, O Lord,
and with great might come among us;
and, because we are sorely hindered by our sins,
let Your bountiful grace and mercy
speedily help and deliver us;
through Jesus Christ our Lord,
to whom, with You and the Holy Spirit,
be honor and glory now and forever.
Amen.

Thomas Cranmer, 16th century
