Most gracious and loving Lord,
Send us your Holy Spirit.
As we come together as one body in your holy name,
fill us with your love and grace. Guide us.
Open our eyes to see you in each other,
Open our ears to humbly hear your words,
Illuminate our minds to understand,
And transform our hearts to grow together as one.
Create a new spirit in us to share our gifts with one another.
Unite us in peace and faith so we may be one in Jesus Christ our Lord.
