Holy God, Father of us all, we ask you to purify us that we may serve you before your altar today. Cast your arms of love and reconciliation around us, that we remember our place within your heavenly family. Guide us by your Spirit to walk the ways of truth, justice and love through the example of your Son our Savior Jesus Christ. Help us to embrace the fathers of our own families who are with us today, and remember those who are gone from us. Give us strength and courage to love and serve You in each moment of our lives, and the wisdom to act in the name of Christ. Shield the joyous and bless the suffering, Lord Christ, and extend your hand of healing over those we now name.
