Presider:  Gracious God, you exercise your authority chiefly in showing love through your Son Jesus Christ:  Enable us both to will and to work for your good pleasure, that we may pray and serve faithfully, as we say:  You guide the humble in doing right, and teach your way to the lowly. 

 

Litanist:  You have called the members of Christ's body to work out our own salvation with fear and trembling:  Encourage us in Christ with the consolation of your love, that we may share in your Spirit of compassion.  You guide the humble in doing right,         

and teach your way to the lowly.

 

Inspire our leaders and all who hold authority in the world to do nothing from selfish ambition or conceit, but to serve humanity with humility and grace.  You guide the humble in doing right,

and teach your way to the lowly.

 

Fill the world with your Spirit, that all people may serve others with humble faithfulness.  You guide the humble in doing right,    

and teach your way to the lowly.

 

Be with our community that our actions and words may be consistent as we look generously to the interests of our neighbors.  You guide the humble in doing right,           

and teach your way to the lowly.

 

Make our joy complete by bringing your healing love to all for whom we pray, especially ___. 

Accept our gratitude and thanksgiving for all that we enjoy, especially for ___.

You guide the humble in doing right,

Presider:  Through the death and triumphant resurrection of your Son Jesus, O God, you have raised all humanity into your divine presence:  Be at work in us that we may do your will on earth with joyful and obedient hearts, and share in the consolation of your Spirit, through Jesus Christ our Savior.  Amen.
