for you have brought us safely to this new day.
May your word, O Lord, be a light to our path;
may we trust in your guidance
and be led by your law of love.
Sustain our hearts in fath and hope, Lord Christ,
and unify them in fulfilling your work in the world today.
Spirit of the Living God,
fill us with the power of grace and holiness
that we may serve God in gentleness.
Give us strength to choose good and renounce evil:
make us peace-makers and healers in your Name.
Extend your saving help to those who seek You, O God,
and bless and keep all those for whom we pray.
