|Two new Daughters of the King commit to lives of service and prayer.|
O God, your love is ever before our eyes and hearts, and we sing alleluia for your steadfast grace in gratitude.
Place our feet on level ground within your gates, O Holy One, that your Word may be a lamp to our heart's journey.
You, Lord Christ, are our strength and our model: may we work for healing, forgiveness, justice, and shalom.
Merciful One, let us use this new day to stand for peace in the midst of tumult, embodying your love in the world.
Let us repel the forces of division and hatred through love's power to the glory of your Name.
Comfort and shield all who suffer any anxiety or trouble, especially those we remember before You now.
