Let us raise a loud shout to the Lord, who was and is and ever shall be, Creator and Protector of All. Unite us to You in love and faithfulness, Lord Christ, that we may lift high your banner to the world. We ask your pardon for our manifold faults, O Merciful One, and thank You for your abundant gift of grace.
Extend your traveling mercies to those who journey in the air, on land, or at sea. Protect us from calamity and guide us safely home, wherever we may go today. Set our hearts and minds upon hearing the call of God in our lives, and guide us in right pathways. Press upon us behind and before, O Loving One, and extend your mercy upon those we now name.
