Martin Luther Church of our Lady by sharonang

Almighty God,
who through the death of your Son
   has destroyed sin and death,
and through His resurrection
   has restored innocence and eternal life,
that we may be delivered from the dominion of the devil,
   and our mortal bodies raised from the dead:
grant that we may confidently and wholeheartedly
   believe this,
and finally, with your saints,
   share in the joyful resurrection of the just;
through the same Jesus Christ, your Son, our Lord.

Martin Luther, 1483-1546, German reformer

For I am not ashamed of the gospel,
for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes,
to the Jew first and also to the Greek.
For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith for faith,
as it is written, “The righteous shall live by faith.”
