Holy One, we rise to hear your Word: peace, let us be still, and know that God is Lord of all.
By the tender mercy of our Savior, we place ourselves before You, O Holy One: bless and keep us, we pray.
Turn our hearts aside from bitterness and division: shine the light of peace into the corners of our hearts. Unite us in thanksgiving and remembrance at your altar, Lord, and feed us in our hearts by faith.
Let us work for justice, mercy, and peace upon the earth, walking in love as Jesus taught us. Let us proclaim the abundance of your Love, O God, as we go into the week renewed in our ministry.
Hold us in the hollow of your hand, Lord Christ, and bless those for whom we pray.
