O God of love, we ask you to give us love:

            Love in our thinking,

            Love in our speaking,

            Love in our doing,

and love in the hidden places of our souls;

love of those with whom we find it hard to bear,

and  love of those who find it hard to bear with us;

            Love of those with whom we work.

            And love of those with whom we take our ease;

So that at length we may be worthy to dwell with you, who are eternal love.

A Blessing

Go forth into the world in peace;
be of good courage;
hold fast that which is good;
render to no one evil for evil;
strengthen the fainthearted;
support the weak;
help the afflicted;
honour everyone;
love and serve the Lord,
rejoicing in the power of the Holy Spirit;
and the blessing of God almighty,
the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit,
be among you and remain with you always.
