God of justice and love,
strengthen our minds and hearts
to believe in ourselves and
to love you more dearly.
Remind us that in caring for your people
we come to know you more deeply.
Provide us with the courage
to seek good for all members
of our community, our nation, our world.
May we walk humbly in this journey
of following your Son’s path
of reaching out to those
most in need,
and walking with them in
righting the wrongs of our time.
