O God, we pray that you may find us worthy to work through us. Reveal to us our station clearly, and strengthen us to teach and guide, by our example. Show us clearly the heart of the kingdom of God. Help us go forward without fear in order to fulfill our mission simply, surely, and steadily. Teach us how to dispense with unnecessary things. Make us ready to face distress and contrary winds. We do not protest even if the way is hard. We will march onward, even in the face of distress and contrary winds, in the name of Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen.
