O Lord, let our praises ascend as incense; let our prayers enter your presence.
Let our hearts be a sanctuary, filled with the light of your
bountiful Love. Your Name is on our
lips, sweeter than honey; your Word is our bread and our meat,
strengthening us for our labors. May justice and peace shine forth from
our words and works to glorify Your commandments. May your compassion be
poured as a balm on those who suffer; for You, O God, know our sorrows,
and we lay them before You.
May your benevolent mercy envelop those
whose names we place before You.
