Abide with and within us, Lord Christ:
guide us as we seek to walk your path of holiness.
May we offer healing love and mercy
to those who ask our help,
remembering your abundant grace we receive, O God.
May we stand in compassion and solidarity
with the poor and oppressed, Lord,
remembering that you call us to bear each other's burdens.
May we walk in gentleness and humility upon the earth,
caring for creation with gratitude and tenderness.
Holy One, be our companion and stay,
and pour out your blessing upon those we now name.
