Dear God, You are the King Eternal, immortal and invisible. Before the mountains were brought forth, or ever You had formed the earth and the world, from everlasting to everlasting you are God. You are the same yesterday, today, and forever.
You have given us so much by providing our salvation. Help us to make the gospel attractive to others by the way we shine Jesus’ light on those we encounter each day. You alone are God, and do not change; and because of this, we may hope to be preserved.
Grant, O God, that Your holy and life-giving Spirit may so move every human heart. So that, barriers which divide us may crumble, suspicions disappear and hatreds cease. Let our divisions being healed, we may live together in justice and peace, through Jesus Christ our Lord.
