Dearest Jesus, our Lord, our Savior, our Friend, our Teacher, and our Example, in three years you trained the disciples for their work and then left them with the uncomfortable power of the Holy Spirit. Help us and Your missionaries everywhere to learn to be expendable, to know how to reach and train others, to know when to hand things over to them and move on. Help us to get out of the way gracefully when our part of the missionary work is done, for You Yourself became expendable for the good of Your Church. In Your strong Name we ask it. Amen.
May the Spirit of the Lord be upon us that we may announce good news to the poor, proclaim release for the prisoners, and recovery of sight for the blind; that we may let the broken victim go free, and proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor; according to the example of Christ and by His grace. Amen
Grant us Lord the spirit of wisdom and insight, the spirit of counsel and might, the spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the Lord; to make us quick in understanding, and true in judgment; according to the example of Christ and by His grace. Amen.
