Eternal God, renew us with your Holy Spirit so that all our thoughts and our actions this day are centered in your will. Open our hearts, our minds, and our wills to worship you in truth and sincerity in all that we do. Help us to shine as a light in a world that is darkened by fear, distrust, and anger. Speak to us to strengthen our faith and our witness to your loving kindness, so that we may reach out to support and strengthen others, through Jesus Christ we pray. Amen.
