We rise in the dawning of the day the Lord has made, and we rejoice in God our Savior!
Purify our hearts and minds that we may serve You, O Christ, and embody your love in the world! Forgive us for twisting your good gifts to us for our own ends, and for despising the needs of our neighbors.
Let us walk gently upon the earth, proclaiming your gospel with compassionate hearts. Let us love You, O God, with all our hearts and all our strength, seeking to serve You in joy. Lord Jesus, act through us today for healing: we pray to be worthy of being called disciples.
By the power of the Holy Spirit, unite us in love, peace, and justice for all, we humbly pray. Holy One, stretch out your hand over us, and over all those for whom we pray.
