Holy One, send forth your light upon us,
and settle a spirit of honor and integrity upon the land,
that we may be led into wisdom and truth today.
Help us turn aside from malice, contempt, and vanity,
that we may devote ourselves to discipleship and reconciliation,
celebrating the dignity and worth of all.
Give us hearts to rejoice
in the beauty of your holiness, O Lord,
our Redeemer and our Guide.
Anoint us with your compassionate spirit, Lord Christ,
that we may put our hearts and hands
to the wheel of peace and justice.
Place your comforting, steadying hand
upon the brow of all who seek you,
especially those we remember before you now.
