God of all goodness and grace, worthy of a greater love than we can either give or understand; fill our hearts with such love towards you that nothing may seem too hard for us to endure, in obedience to your will. Becoming daily more like you, may we obtain the crown of life promised to all who love you; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
Brooke Foss Westcott (1825-1901)
Liberating God, we praise you for the gift of new life
and the promise that all things will be set free
and will obtain the freedom of the glory of the children of God.
We delight in the joy that comes
from knowing the help of your Spirit in our weakness;
the peace that knowing nothing in all creation
can separate us from your love in Christ Jesus
and the hope that all things will work together
for good for those who love you.
Draw us more fully into your life-giving, loving and liberating
purpose for all creation. Amen.
