|Jesus prays in Gethsemani; detail from a door at La Sagrada Familia Basilica, Barcelona, Spain.|
Holy One, we raise our voices in praise and prayer to You, grateful for your abundant works in our lives.
We own and lament our manifold sins and failures, O God; give us courage to do right even in the face of resistance. May we work for the common good, for peace and justice, honoring the dignity and worth of all persons. May we act as Christ's hands and heart in the world, and be forces of healing and reconciliation.
Lord Jesus, envelop us in your healing love, and bless those for whom we pray.
