I thank You, Lord, that the prophecy of the High Priest, though he worked against You, actually came to pass. You have gathered for Yourself a people from all the lands. Surely, it is not just Israel You call Your own but those who were scattered abroad. In fact, You have made Your Church, the new Israel and they are those Whom You call Your own. Grant, I pray Thee, that I may be numbered with them in the Kingdom of God. Have mercy upon me and all who call upon Your Name. Amen.
