(2 Cor. 1:21-22)
Almighty, Life-Giving God, put your seal upon us this day. Put your seal upon our mouths, that we may speak what is true and right and good. Put your seal upon our hearts, that we may serve you in body and in spirit. Put your seal upon our communities, that we may work together for the common good. Let us give our "yes" to serve this day the One in whom all that God promises are answered. Let us receive the Spirit of love and truth, to empower us to serve. Trusting in your tender compassion and lovingkindness, O Merciful One, we lay these cares before You.
