God of the living, your saving Word is the source of all wisdom. In faith we pray: Lead us by the light of truth, O God. 

Help us to ponder your Gospel, and let it bear fruit in our lives.  

     Lead us by the light of truth, O God.  

Deepen a desire for unity, understanding, and peace among all people. 

     Lead us by the light of truth, O God. 

Guide efforts to work for the well-being of the earth and all that dwells therein.  

     Lead us by the light of truth, O God. 

Our Father . . . 

May God delight our eyes, minds, and hearts in the light of this new day, through Jesus our Risen Savior. Amen.
