In peace, we pray to you, Lord God. All that we have and all that we are in rooted in You, O God, for You made us and sustain us in every breath.
Let us be joyful in the presence of the Almighty One who bends to tend the sleeping earth and waken the saints in steadfast love. Come, let us gather in the courts of the Lord, and worship our Creator and Redeemer! Let us raise up our prayers and our songs, our hands and our hearts, to be sanctified to holy service. Let us tell out our gratitude for the love of our Savior, and shine forth with the light of Christ in the world.
Send your Spirit like a mighty wind to enlighten us, O God. May we receive your Son into our hearts, and walk in compassion with all the earth. Shine the light of your countenance upon us, O Merciful One, and bless and protect all those who come before You.
