God and Father of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, we praise you for your goodness toward your people, for allowing us part in both receiving and taking the gospel into the world.
We give you thanks for the power of your Spirit who works mightily in us, for the Word that shows us the way, for the Cross which removes our sin and restores us to your presence.
May this day be yours. May our lives reflect the righteousness of Christ. May our sanctification be complete through your Spirit.
