I praise you and thank you, Jesus Christ my Lord, for you give me the strength to do what you’ve called me to do. Though I was a sinner, I received your mercy and grace. For you came into the world to save sinners like me. I praise you, Lord, for your great mercy. To you, O King of the ages, immortal, invisible, the only God, be honor and glory forever and ever (1 Timothy 1:12-17).
