Loving One, we praise You for your steadfast love: may we abide in the spirit of truth and hope. You have given us a home within your embrace, and have blessed us abundantly through limitless grace: hear our prayer.
We give You thanks for loving, steadfast hearts who have filled our days with friendship: may we never take love for granted. We give You thanks for work, and the strength to do it, that satisfies our minds and spirits: may all we do be to the glory of your kingdom. We give You thanks for healing and comfort for those who have been ill or in distress: your love, O God, is from everlasting.
Send your angels to spread their sheltering wings over those who call out to You.
