Most Merciful God, we bow before You, placing ourselves in worship of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Holy One, give us strength to turn away from sin and embrace holiness and peace. Give us tender hearts toward all creation, loving You and each other with all our might. Let us rejoice in those who love us and forgive those who have hurt us, remembering our own failures. Let us use hands and hearts to heal the world, and bring compassion and justice to life. Blessed Savior, place the kiss of your blessing upon our brows, and stretch forth your healing hand to those we now name.
