Forsaking that which comes Before
Lord, you alone dwell in unapproachable light, and to thee we ascribe Glory.
In the Name of the Father, Who created me, with the Son who liberated me, in the Holy Spirit who renews life over the face of Creation. Amen.
Lord, hear our prayer:
That we might find courage on the pilgrim path, we pray. For those who find their decisions clouded, grant your guiding light.
Lord, for those Who face life and death, we pray You show your mercy. For the weak and theweary, hear our prayer.
For the clergy and religious, that you may draw them deeper into your infinite love, and that we too like them may forsake all that comes before You.
For you are the life which is the Light of men, and we rejoice in having found you. For while we were without you we had darkness, but you O Lord, have made our eye good, and filled our body full of Light.
Give us thy holy light, that we too might be in and through thine all good and Penetecostal Spirit the life of men insofar as we embody you and forsake all else that has come before. We humbly pray.
In the Name of the Father, the source and wellspring of Love. The Son, the eternal Beloved, and the Holy Spirit, the bond of love stronger than Death, we pray. Amen.
