God all mighty,
make haste to upend the wicked,
be swift to defend the abused,
come yesterday to avenge injustice.

Christ all gracious,
turn our ambitions to dust for your glory,
change our hearts to love without limit,
sweep away all distractions like grass in fire.

Spirit all wise,
be our faith in the flood of despair,
be the law alone upon our lives,
be our grace no matter our shame.

Because we are yours, we are holy.
Because we are loved, we are holy.
Because we love, we are holy.

Because we are your body, we are holy.
Because we are your blood, we are holy.
Because we bleed, we are holy.

Because we are your delight, we are holy.
Because we are your exultation, we are holy.
Because we exalt, we are holy.

God all mighty,
Christ all gracious,
Spirit all wise, we pray. Amen.
