Prayer for the New Week

By your will, O God,

we go out into the world with the good news of your undying love,

and minister in the midst of human need to show wonders of your grace.

We pray for the people we will meet this week.

May they be strengthened by our concern, and supported by our gifts.

Do not let them (or us) be discouraged, but make us all brave and glad and hopeful in your word:

through Jesus Christ the Lord. Amen
