Opening Prayer (in unison) - Dianne Kinney
Lord, be with us this day: Within us to purify us; Above us to draw us up; Beneath us to sustain us; Before us to lead us; Behind us to restrain us; Around us to protect us. We ask you, O Master, to be our help. Rescue those in distress; Raise up the fallen; Assist the needy; Heal the sick; Feed the hungry; Release the captives; Revive the weak; Encourage those who lose heart. May we remember this day and always that you are the one true God, that Jesus Christ is your only Son, and that by the power of your Holy Spirit, we are enabled to do your work. Amen.

Many: And now, God, send us out to do the work that you have given us to do: to love and serve you as faithful witnesses of Christ our Lord. To Christ, to you, and to the Holy Spirit be all honor and glory, now and forever, Amen.
