Generous Father, thank you that every good and perfect gift comes from you, the Father of lights. Give me joy in the work of leading your people. Give me the strength to work hard for your kingdom. You are the God of peace. May you sanctify me completely, and may my whole spirit and soul and body be kept blameless at the coming of the Lord Jesus Christ. You, who called me, are faithful to the end. Through Jesus Christ, our Lord, Amen.
