Lord, shine your grace upon the Church.
Give it boldness to proclaim the Gospel.
When the Church strays, call it back to faithfulness.
Whenever servants cause harm to the faithful, bring them to repentance.
Send faithful servants who will care for people.
Set the hearts of your people on fire to proclaim the Gospel,
And strengthen them against the attacks from the devil and the word.
By the power of the Spirit, bless your Church to proclaim your message,
And bring your changeless love to a changing world.
