We thank you for servants like John who love you, your people, and your truth.
We trust that your grace, mercy and peace will be with us,
from you, our God and Father,
and from your son, Jesus Christ, in truth and love.
Mall all your people walk in your truth and obey your commandment to love on another.
Keep us alert always to those who would deceive us with lies,
and help us to keep them at arm’s length.
