Great God of All, we turn our hearts to you.
Set our feet firmly in your purpose
while winds and words sway us to the left and to the right.
Set our minds on Jesus,
our Example in life, the Shepherd who calls our name,
our Savior who leads us.
Set our bodies straight and tall,
your creation, in your image.
And set our affections at peace
that we may believe and proclaim,
that we may love with a confidence
which comes from you alone. Amen.
