Prayer 1068- On St. Stephen's Day
We turn our eyes to the Rising Light, Jesus, our Savior and Redeemer, giving thanks with all our hearts.
Keep us, dear Lord, as the apple of your eye, and hold us in the hollow of your mercy and grace. Uphold us in righteousness and peace, and bring us in unity and charity into your holy courts.
Teach us to serve each other and witness to your holy truth, as your servant Steven did, we pray. Preserve us from all sin and enmity, both from without and within, O Holy One, and open our hearts to your Spirit.
Seal us with your blessing, O God, and remember those whose names we lay before You.
