"I came that they may have life,
and have it abundantly."
Jesus, you taught us this.
You taught us that you came to give us life.
Help us to receive this new life that you give us.
May we share in your joy this day.
May we live as you would have us to live.
May we share in your Spirit.
Send your Holy Spirit to us this day.
Thank you, Jesus.
Help us to bring peace to our troubled world
that your kingdom will come.
