Almighty God, we draw together to worship You in thought, in word, and in our actions.
Let us make this day an oblation of Love to You, filling our hearts like a deep well, to pour out mercy to a thirsty land.
Help us quench the fires of division, and seek only to do Your will today.
Spread the cooling balm of your compassion over all those who are in sickness, pain, anxiety, or sorrow, especially those we now name.
