God, you fill us with joyful expectation

COLLECT
God of timeless grace,
you fill us with joyful expectation:
make us ready for the message that
prepares the way
so that with uprightness of heart and holy joy
we may eagerly await the kingdom of
your Son, Jesus Christ;
who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen.

AUTHOR OF LIFE,
HEALER OF THE NATIONS;
GRANT US COURAGE TO FACE OUR TRIAL,
GIVE US WISDOM TO FIND RELIEF, GIVE US FAITH TO BE RESPONSIBLE
AND GRANT US YOUR SALVATION
FOR JESUS CHRIST’S SAKE. Amen.

Commission & Benediction

As we prepare to leave
Lord Jesus, give us grace
On earth to love You more,
In Heav’n to see Your face,
And with Your saints adore.

BLESSING
The peace of God, which passes all understanding, keep your hearts and minds in the knowledge and love of God, and of his Son Jesus Christ our Lord; and the blessing of God Almighty, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, be amongst you, and remain with you always.

SENDING
Let us go in peace to love and serve the Lord,
In the name of Christ. Amen.
