O God, thank you for bringing us in safety to this day, whether it holds sunshine or snow, for both are blessings from You.
Open our lips to proclaim your praise; our hearts to enshrine your Love, our minds to receive your Word. Create in us clean hearts, and renew our spirits to do your work. Bless and consecrate us this day to go forth into the world bearing your message of justice and peace.
We turn to You in joy and sorrow, hope and anxiety, for you sustain us always with your bountiful Spirit. Uphold your servants who call upon you in their cares and concerns, especially those we now name.
