Servants of God, who delight God’s heart,
go forth by the power of the Holy Spirit
to do justice, strengthen the weak, and free those in bondage.
Go forth as ministers of the covenant
made for us in Jesus Christ.
Go forth in the hope of the new dawn,
shining in God’s light.
As you go forth,
may the hope of Christ’s coming,
the power of the Spirit’s presence,
and the glory of God’s kingdom
be with you always. Amen.
