A Prayer for Derek & M

Derek the Ænglican has a job interview today, and his lovely wife (an old friend of mine since middle school) will today be ordained.  And so for both of you I say this prayer:

God our creator, you have given us work to do and call us to use our talents for the good of all.  Guide us as we work, and teach us to live in the Spirit who made us your sons and daughters, in the love that made us sisters and brothers, through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Amen.

(Evangelical Lutheran Worship, pg 331 – proof .pdf available here)
