Grant, O God, that we may be united to you and to our
neighbour with an undivided love; serve you and your children
with an undivided heart and reverence you and your creation
with an undivided will; through Christ our Lord. Amen.

John Scotus Erigena (c.810-877)

Lord, you are a covenant God. Let us always remember that when we must make decisions, for ourselves or for our communities, you are central and always faithful. May we never shun you or forget your covenant with us but look for your eternal wisdom and guidance. Amen.

Lord, before ever you made us, you loved us. Nor has your
love ever slackened, nor ever shall. In love all your works
have begun, and in love they continue. In this love our life
is everlasting, and in this love we shall see you and be glad
forever. Amen.

Julian of Norwich (1342-1416)

as the dove to launch us heavenward; come as water to cleanse,

Lord. Amen.
