Ruler of all,
your people long for the day
when mercy reigns,
when children everywhere learn peacemaking
instead of war,
when the redemption won for us
out of your great love
is lived in every moment
of our lives.
As citizens of the kingdom of Heaven,
we are ordained in baptism
to live out the call to serve you
with all our resources:
energy, intelligence, imagination,
and love ...
for the manifestation of the common good.
Teach us to be the people you have called us to be.
Lead us according to your faithful example
into faithfulness as well.
Stir in our hearts a desire
to welcome as we have been welcomed,
to nurture as we have been nurtured,
to challenge as we have been challenged,
to comfort as we have been comforted,
and to re-member as we have been re-membered
into the Body of Christ.
As we give thanks for your reign from the cross,
and celebrate your reign in our midst through the Holy Spirit,
we also look forward to your coming reign on earth
with hearts that are filled with hope.
