We gather today in your name, Lord, mindful of the seasons of our lives and of our organizations, mindful of the shortness of time in which to plant the seeds and harvest the fruit of Your kingdom.
Almighty God, and You Lord Jesus Christ, we pray you to enlighten us and to dispel the darkness of our spirit. Give us a faith that is without limit, a hope that is ever unfailing, and a love
that is universal.
Grant, O Lord, that we may really know You and that we may be guided in all things according to Your light and in conformity with Your will.
