We rise from our beds to witness your glory, Lord Christ, and gather before you in prayer, thanksgiving, and awe. Let your light and your truth wash over us, O Savior, that the eyes of our hearts may be opened to your radiance.
May we proclaim your gospel throughout the world and in our lives, and witness to your transforming love. May we be filled with your holy light, that we be known as your children by our love and faithfulness, O God. Transformed by the power of the Holy Spirit, may we be your heart in the world, Lord Christ.
Send forth the power of the Holy Spirit, O Holy One, upon all of us who need thy grace, especially those we now name.
