Living Lord and traveller in the way of men, our trailblazer into eternity, ignite in our hearts the passionate fire of heaven; burn from our minds the cancer of selfish and self-centered thought. Compel us by Your great love to imitate Your love, and embolden us to share Your truth at all times and in all ways, bringing glory to your Name, both now and forever. Amen.
Thank You, O God, for the courage and faith of all those men and women who, from the time of the apostles, preached the Gospel of the living Christ; those who were strong in the face of persecution; those who brought the good news to this land of ours; and for those, who, in recent years, have gone to teach and to preach in the Name of Christ, their Lord. Be with Your Church in every lane, Strengthen her when she is weak, encourage her when she is failing, give her humility where she is proud, and self-confident; and where, day by day, she is seeking to show others the joy of Your salvation, increase her effectiveness and deepen her faith in You. Amen.
You, O Lord, are the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. You do not grow tired or weary, and no one can fathom Your great understanding. You give strength to the weary and You increase the power of the weak. You renew the strength of those who place their hope in You so that they soar on wings like eagles. They will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint. Amen.
