We thank you, Lord, for giving us your righteousness, because of our faith in you as our Savior and Lord. We love righteousness and hate evil, and are grateful that you deliver us from the wicked devices of the evil one who makes it his business to steal, kill, and destroy. You foil his diabolical plots against us as you defend us, heal and deliver us, and destroy his works on our behalf. You have sown your light and gladness in us and give us the ultimate victory. Amen.
