O Loving God, we bow before You in humble thanks for all your gifts. Give us the courage to serve those who persecute us, just as Patrick served those who had held him in bondage. Give us grace to respond to your call wherever it may take us, and in our daily life bring honor to You. Make us one in body, mind, and spirit, to proclaim your love with steadfast hearts. Watch over those who are ill or weary, giving them strength to persevere, especially those we now name.
