You have shown yourself to us
as a God of steadfast love and fidelity.
You gave us Jesus so that we might know
that Your love is steadfast, relentless, and endless;
that Your faithfulness is constant, honest, and true.
In the name of Jesus,
we come to You as a community of disciples.
May our hearts be consumed by Your marvelous love.
May our minds be gripped by Your faithful presence.
And in genuine response to Your fidelity and love
may we in turn become faithful disciples of Jesus.
Send us forth in the Holy Spirit, dear God;
send us forth as faithful disciples.
In the way we think, talk and act
may we bear witness to Christ.
Thus may Your steadfast love and fidelity
be made known to the whole world.
