Prayer

Then I heard a voice in heaven saying, ‘Whom shall I send? and who will go for us? Then said I, ‘Here I am; send me.’

+ Lord God, I pray for all those who have gone out into the world in response to Your call; hear the cries of their hearts, and work Your wonders in them and through them.
+ Spirit of God, be their strength and guide; and fill them with Your power to comfort the broken-hearted, give sight to the blind, and set the captives free.
+ Spirit of God, revitalize them from within, protect them from without, and go before them to prepare the hearts of all whom they encounter along the way.
+ Lord God, may the cause of Christ triumph through their faithful witness, and may Your work prosper wherever You send them.

Gracious God: may the protection of Christ clothe us and enfold us, surround us and guard us, this day and every day, surrounding us and our companions, enfolding us and our friends. In Your mercy, Lord, keep us free from sin, and protect us from all anxiety as we wait in joyful hope for the coming of our Savior, Jesus Christ. Let Your Kingdom come, Lord, in us. Amen.
