Our Father in heaven, Hallowed be Your name. Your Kingdom come. Your Will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. And do not lead us into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one. For Yours is The Kingdom and The Power and The Glory forever. Amen.

For The Lord Himself will come down from heaven with a shout of command, with the voice of the archangel and with the blast of the trumpet of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are alive and remain on the earth will simultaneously be caught up (raptured) together with them (the resurrected ones) in the clouds to meet The Lord in the air, and so we will always be with The Lord! Therefore comfort and encourage one another with these words concerning our reunion with believers who have died.
