Spirit of the Living God, may Your Presence strengthen us in our journey forward, that we may be bearers of Your Love to those who seek to know You through us.
Resurrected Christ, grant us the courage to face the challenges of life with a faith and hope You have shown us.
Holy Spirit, unseen Force that inspires the human heart to see beyond their own needs; encourage us to continue working for the greater good.
May our faith shift our eyes from the sky to the streets.
May our hope help all people feel accepted and included.
May our love reach out to the most vulnerable, marginalized, hungry, thirsty, naked, sick and imprisoned.
As we journey towards restoration and healing, may we learn to heal ourselves so that we can heal others, for we cannot give that which we do not have.
Great Spirit of Comfort, Compassion and Mercy, help us to learn from the lessons of today so that we may build a stronger foundation tomorrow.
This we pray in the name of the Resurrected Christ. Hallelujah. Amen.
