Blessed be the Name of the Lord, who lifts us up and places us upon the solid rock: let us give thanks to God!
Enter into the inmost center of our being, O Holy One, and anoint us with your Spirit, that we may cling to your love.
Let us make our home in the embrace of God, who abides with us and guards all our ways.
May we be filled with the light of Christ, and may it pour forth from our hearts to illumine our path, and guide us home.
May we be transformed and radiate the love of Christ into a world famished for hope and peace.
Beloved Savior, envelop us within your care, and place your blessing upon those we now name.
