Protecting God, in Jesus you guard our going and coming. With trust we pray: 

Give us courage, O God.  

Delight our hearts with your living Word, and help us to extend your peace to all we meet. 

Give us courage, O God. 

Strengthen missionaries and those who are persecuted for their faith. 

Give us courage, O God.  

Help us to find ways to respond to conflict with nonviolence. 

Give us courage, O God.  

Our Father . . .  

May God strengthen us in times of trial and sustain our hope, through Jesus our brother. Amen.
