God who frees us, free us again.
Free us to be leaders who are servants. Free us to be servants who are leaders.
Free us from human expectations so that we may fulfill yours instead. Free us from hopeless despair and disbelief so we may serve your new kingdom.
Free us from the self-neglect so that we honor being created in your image. Free us from the self-interest so that we may see the needs of others.
Free us, O God, for when you free us we shall be truly free indeed.
