“God of all time and space, you set us on a path of faithfulness and walk beside us whispering – sometimes shouting – words of encouragement. Your Spirit breathes in and through and among us even when we strike out on our own way and listen to the words of the crowd. Thank you for the promise that you will never leave us or forsake us, that you long for us like a nursing mother for her babe, that you wait and watch, a loving father, to welcome us home. Grant to commissioners who even now prepare, and to all members of the United Church of Canada to catch your vision. May Jesus the Christ and the passion he lived for Your Way and the ultimate sacrifice he made and the new Life his resurrection opened to us be before us always as we make choices and decisions for the future. Remind us with every breath that we are yours and that we live and move always in the Light of Your Love. Through Christ, in Christ, with Christ, in the unity of the Spirit we pray. Amen.”
