|The contingent from the Diocese of Missouri at EYE17.|
you have brought us safely through the night
and we rise to give you thanks.
Turn our pilgrim feet toward the path of peace,
and draw us together in unity with all creation.
Turn our pilgrim hearts to sing your grace
and embody your truth and love in the world.
Help us to see with new eyes
the wonder of your creation
in the world and each other.
Extend the shade of your right hand
over all who are bowed down by mourning or loss,
we humbly pray.
Shield and comfort those
who are in danger, sorrow or pain,
and grant them your peace beyond measure.
Lord Christ, we turn to You in hope,
and ask your blessing upon all for whom we pray.
