God of Love and mercy,
you call us to be your people,
you gift us with your abundant grace.
Make us a holy people,
radiating the fullness of your love.
Form us into a community,
a people who care,
expressing your compassion.
Remind us day after day of our baptismal call and our call to Mercy,
to serve with joy and courage.
Teach us to grow in wisdom and grace and joy in your presence.
Through Jesus and in your spirit,
we make this prayer.
