in all that we do today
make us mindful of your presence close beside us.
Inspire us to live and work for justice,
to honour all with whom we spend our time
to stand beside the powerless,
to speak for those who have no voice,
that your kingdom may come and your will be done
in us and through us to the glory of your name. Amen.
May God empower you to live for him and to be a sign of hope in our world.
