Let us lift our prayers to God, who is making heaven and earth. For You, O Savior, uphold us in our troubles and uplift us in our joys, and we give You all our devotion and praise.
Let us sit in quiet companionship with our Redeemer, opening our hearts to meditate upon God's word. For You, Lord Christ, are our Teacher and Companion, who knocks at the door of our hearts.
Let us turn our faces to the light of the Spirit, that God's love alone may guide us in word and deed. For You, O Holy One, are our bread and our cup, our strength and our solace, our All in All.
Forgive us our sins, in thought, word, and deed, O Lord; renew a right spirit within us and reform our relationships with You and each other. Accept our offered intentions for those we lift up in prayer, O God, and grant your blessin on those we now name.
