The whole earth rejoices as your light is revealed!
Unify our hearts and spirits
within your Beloved Community, O Emmanuel,
That we may reveal your saving love.
Forgive us our sins against you,
and your creation;
Teach us to walk in your healing ways forever.
Draw us into deeper understanding of your power and grace:
Lead us in mercy and compassion for all.
May all people turn to the Light of Love Incarnate,
and see anew the wonders of creation, we humbly pray.
Holy One, we bring before you
our cares and our thanksgivings:
Pour out your peace over those we now name.
