out of love for this fallen world
you sent your Son, our Savior
to be crucified and raised for us.
Now you send your people into the world.
May we be rescued from wicked and evil people.
Strengthen and keep safe
all who go out with the good news.
God, direct our hearts to your love
and to the steadfastness of Christ.
Help each of us to be industrious,
to do our assigned tasks,
to earn our own living,
and never become weary
in doing what is just.
Oh God of peace,
give us your peace
in all times and in all ways.
Lord God, be with us all.
The grace of our Lord be with all of us.
