Lord Jesus, with sighs of gratitude we are drawn within your saving embrace: with joy may we bear your love into the world.
May we make your Church not just a place of refuge but a haven of justice, empowerment, and peace.
Let us be known by our open-heartedness and compassion in place of pride and hunger for power. Let us be known by our love and faithfulness in the midst of selfishness and adversity. Let us be known by our service to those poor in body or in spirit, that we all know the abundance of Your mercy.
May we remember your tender watchfulness over us, and lay before You the prayers of our hearts.
