How do you close this prayer?

Heidelberg Catechism

Question 128.
How do you close this prayer?

Answer. “For Thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever;” that is, all this we ask of You, because as our King, having power over all things, You are willing and able to give us all good;[1] and that thereby not we, but Your holy name may be glorified for ever.[2]

[1] Rom 10:11-13; 2 Pt 2:9;
[2] Ps 115:1; Jer 33:8-9; Jn 14:13
