Gracious Father, we thank you for always being near us. Except your presence abide with us,
we have no strength to overcome temptation, no wisdom to solve the problems of life, no power for service. As redeemed sons of God, may we reflect the brightness and the glory of Him who has given us life and hope.
Kindle in our hearts a new flame of love for you and all mankind. Fill us with
the desire to go forth as herals of the blessed gospel. Give us the courage and boldness to testify in words and deeds
to the faith by which we live and work. Help us to be loyal to you and to your commandments.
Lead us by your grace in paths of Purity and Godliness and bless our lives with the
consciousness of our oneness with you.
Enable us by the power of your Holy Spirit, that we may have a conscience that is
void of offense toward you and men, and prepare us to bring others into fellowship with you.
