Sixteenth Day of Easter
Grant that in all that we think, say, or do
we will contribute to the building and enlarging of life,
we will build people up and not tear them down,
we will be part of the solution to the problems created by those who tear people down, who build walls between people, and who foster hostility and hate,
we will honor and bear witness to you our God whose primary characteristic is love,
we will follow Jesus our Lord who emptied himself and who came not to be served but to serve.
