“Truly I tell you, unless you change and become like children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven."-- Matthew 18:3
Lord Jesus, abide with us this day, and open our hearts to proclaim your grace as we bless and magnify your Holy Name. Let the whole round earth declare your glory, and all creation join in hymns of praise.
Draw us within the enclosure of your mercy, O Lover of Souls, and in the name of your Beloved Son preserve us and keep us.
Guide us through your gospel to persevere in faithfulness and hope, that we may testify to your Love throughout the world.
In your great mercy forgive us from all our sins, and set our feet securely in pathways of peace and forbearance.
You are the Life and Truth to all who live, O God, and the hope of all who seek You. Press the kiss of your blessing, O Spirit of Healing, upon all who call upon You.
