God of the covenant, your gracious will is joy for our hearts. In faith we pray: Light our way, O God of the living. 

Help us to secure just wages and safe conditions for all workers. 

     Light our way, O God of the living.  

Open us to wonder, praise, and awe at your splendid genius in creatures and creation. 

     Light our way, O God of the living. 

Lead all the faithful departed to share in your everlasting glory.  

     Light our way, O God of the living. 

Our Father . . . 

May God give us the grace to stand firm in faith, hold fast in hope, and persevere in love, through Jesus, the light of the world. Amen.
