“And now, just as you accepted Christ Jesus as your Lord, you must continue to follow him.”
You are great and you are good! We are so unworthy to be called your children and yet you delight in us your Beloved! So fill our memories with your faithfulness and enlighten our understanding with the illumination of your Spirit, so that all of our desires will center in your perfect love.
In prayer, deepen our devotion and heighten our gratitude so that our actions in word and deed reflect the depth of your mercy and grace.
Keep teaching us that your circle is always wider than our perceptions and deliver us from small vision that confines. Transform all that is broken, by initiating gospel words into action.
Pour out your extravagant grace on your people in ways that reveal your quiet strength, your hopeful presence and your faithful love.
O God who never wearies, give us rest. Amen.
