~Scripture Sentence~

“Come to me, all you that are weary and are carrying heavy burdens, and I will give you rest,” says the Lord. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me; for I am gentle and humble in heart.” 

Matthew 11:28-29





Almighty God,

your Son Jesus Christ has taught us

that what we do for the least of his brothers and sisters

we do also for him:

give us the will to serve others

As he was the servant of all,

who gave up his life and died for us;

yet lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,

one God, now and for ever.
