Blessed Savior, lead us and guide us this day, and strengthen our resolve to be your disciples in word and deed. Let us walk with saints and martyrs for peace and justice, that every step be a testimony to your call to righteousness. Let us march joyfully toward your kingdom, remembering your call to act justly, love mercy, and walk humbly before You. Let us forge everlasting bonds of brotherhood and peace, and put our shoulders under the yoke of your love. Help us to bridge the chasms of fear and intolerance that divide us and lead us to anger and sin. Bring us through the winter of discontent and bitter tears to the vernal warmth radiating from the Beloved Community. Strengthen the weary, Lord Christ, and let the hearts of all be filled with blessing, compassion, and contentment. Seal us with your Spirit, and gather within your embrace those we now remember.
