Lord our God, our Father, give us your Spirit, we pray, for You have ruled over us at all times and loved us with a love that guides and leads us, that helps us go forward in body and soul. Reveal your hand. Grant that we undertake nothing in human strength; may everything come from You for each one whose heart holds true to You and who does the work intended for him. Then everything we do on earth can be a service to You. Protect us through your great goodness and faithfulness, which have been with us to this day and will go with us into the future. Amen.
Righteous Father, though the world does not know You, I know You, and they know that You have sent me. I have made You known to them, and will continue to make You known in order that the love You have for me may be in them and that I myself may be in them. John 17:25–26, NIV
