Grant to those who seek you, O Lord, the gift of your kingdom, the comfort of your grace and the vision of your glory; for your own name’s sake. Amen.Book of Common Order (1562)
Lord Jesus, you call each one of us to follow you, to be your disciples and to make disciples.
You enable us to live out that discipleship as we seek to transform the lives of those whom
we meet and the communities to which we belong.
You inspire us to be agents of change and to seize the moment to proclaim your love and to
be open to the leading of the Holy Spirit.
You challenge us to live every day for you.
May we be open to new ways and strengthened through your power. Amen.
