Our heavenly Father,

Let us jettison what divides, embrace what unites, rejoice in the Cross which reconciles.

Let us hear what others say, test all things, prove the spirits, seek after truth.

Let us value silence, know the power of words, use the influence of a good example in the imitation of Christ.

Let us put your kingdom first, die to self, follow the Christ to offer salvation to all mankind.

Let us encourage the fainthearted, rebuke the erring, restore the fallen to their place in the body of Christ.

Let us love our neighbor, care for our families, serve the saints with unflagging zeal.

Let us walk always in your presence, please you in all things, do your will above all else.
