Holy One, we gather around your altars with all your saints, free to worship You with joy and thanksgiving.
Forgive us our sins, O God, and draw us back into paths of holiness, we humbly pray.
Lord, lead us to a deeper faith in You and each other, that we may love more generously, renouncing the politics of division. Let us remember that we are called into unity through Christ, who sustains all things in his mercy and charity. Let us walk in mercy and love, as Christ called us to follow him.
Place your hand of blessing over all those in need, anxiety, or trouble, we humbly pray.
