Almighty God, we praise and bless you for the blessings of love and community, united under Christ's banner. Accept our offered praises for all that You have done for us, O Holy One, that we may magnify your Name in the world. Fill us with the power of the Holy Spirit, that we may joyfully serve You night and day. Preserve us, we pray, from all that seeks to wound or to threaten, especially cold or illness. Help us love each other and care for each other as You care for us-- without reservation or regret. Blessed Jesus, stretch forth your healing hand over us, and bless and keep those whom we now name.
