Almighty God, you have given us grace and love we could never earn. You sent your Son to save us but so often we turn away. We look to the world for our worth and turn to selfishness and pride, rather than to you. Forgive us, O Lord. Turn our hearts to you and fill us with your living water. Let us choose love, humility, and patience as we serve you here on earth. In the name of Jesus Christ our Lord, Amen.

Lamb of God, you take away the sin of the world,
have mercy upon us.
Lamb of God, you take away the sin of the world,
have mercy upon us.
Lamb of God, you take away the sin of the world,
grant us Thy peace.
