Mighty God, thank you that there is nowhere I can go that is beyond your presence. In my pastoral role, help me to devote myself to the word of God and prayer. May Christ dwell in my heart through faith so that I, being rooted and grounded in love, may have the strength to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge. May I be filled with all the fullness of God. Through Jesus Christ, our Lord, Amen.
