Dear self-giving, self-effacing God
Your work of creation and redemption
is for the good of all the people of the world:
May this be an encouragement for us
to bear one another’s burden,
to work for the good of all,
especially for those who are of the household of faith.
Remind us to sow to the Holy Spirit,
and may the day come when we see the blessing of eternal life
in the Holy Spirit.
Give us the gift of self-effacing serivce,
and boast of the cross of Christ,
for the one thing that matters:
A New Creation!
May peace, mercy ad grace be on all our brothers and sisters.
