Sovereign God, you are clothed in truth, justice, and mercy. Secure in your love we pray: Help us, O God. 

Animate us to make choices that support healthy living for current and future generations.  

     Help us, O God. 

Uphold those who work for the rights and dignity of all people. 

     Help us, O God. 

Move us to pray for one another and for our enemies. 

     Help us, O God. 

Our Father . . . 

May God bless us with an increase of faith, hope, and love, through Jesus our brother. Amen.
